Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight over age 60


Avatar f tn I have been trying to lose weight for over a year now, I am 45 yrs old, and I quit smoking in Oct 2008 and had foot surgrey in June 2009, between the 2 I put on 40lbs. I have joined Goodlife and go to there Step Aerobics 2-3 times a week, at 60 mins a class...I am trying to stay at 1500 cal/day and doing a pretty good job, I eat at 7am, then I have protien around 10 and 2:30, lunch at at 12 and dinner around 6/7 depending when I get home.
Avatar f tn Hello, I wanted to know what kind of diet pill I can take for losing weight?
Avatar n tn Why do you want to be underweight? If you love sports you most likely have a lot of muscle mas making up your current underweight BMI. Get a fat percentage measurement done and you may find that you should actually worry more about properly nourishing and taking care of your body's needs than losing weight. Don't hurt yourself, and your body will continue to play sports. Underweight is not good.
Avatar f tn I am an 18 year old male, and weight about 210. I am muscular but I have a stomach on me. I've been trying to lose weight for over a month now. I play basketball for atleast an hour a day, along with an hour of weight lifting and a twenty minute cardio session after that (normally on a bike). I quit drinking soda and other drinks and now only drink water, fat free milk, and an occasional gatorade. I eat less then I use too with minimal snacks. I have not lost any weight in a month.
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar f tn If you are walking 3 to 6 miles per day solely for the purpose of losing weight, consider cutting back to about 2 to 3 miles per day. That will be enough to maintain health without making your body think that it needs to operate at maximum energy efficiency. If you need to walk that much for other reasons, then do what you need to do, but change the kind of food you eat. No sugar, no junk food, no soda pop, and cook your own meals from groceries.
Avatar n tn First, if you're at all muscular, you're not all that overweight. If you're not muscular, you don't need to lose a ton of weight. Calories aren't key to losing weight -- how quickly and efficiently you metabolize your food into sugar and how well you digest your nutrients is far more important.
Avatar m tn I know that my testosterone is low for my age. I plan on losing excess weight and see what happens from there. I know losing weight will lower my estradiol and raise my testosterone, but how much of a difference will it make? I would be willing to try TRT but I am scared of infertility.
Avatar f tn I've had Parkinson's for almost 20 years. I am 64 years old. All of a sudden I started to lose weight rapidly. In the past year I've lost over 60 lbs. and I was 180 lbs. Why am I losing a lot of weight so fast with Parkinson's?. I've had tests and everything else checks out good. I drink a lot of protein drinks and try to eat a lot but I keep losing weight . What to do ?

Avatar n tn Most experts recommend 30-60 minutes of aerobic exercise three or four days a week, along with two or three days of weight-bearing, resistance exercise (such as weight lifting). This is sufficient to achieve satisfying results. You can exercise daily or on alternate days, depending on the availability of time. Walking is one of the simplest aerobic exercises. You can vary the intensity to match your fitness level.
Avatar n tn I would definitely ask your pediatrician to have her seen by a pediatric endocrinologist, it may indeed be early puberty, the dheas is a hormone that the adrenal gland makes and is a sign of early but almost normal variation of the adrenal gland maturation process that can occur in this age range in some kids.

1467664 tn?1288579313 m 5/5)and at one point was 81 pounds(yuck) I lookwd gross and felt worse.but in answer to losing weight the healthy way and not only am I a type 1 I also am a personal trainer.Timing meals ,excercise and insulin are important.Cutting out carb stotally is not a good idea because your body does need the enrgy especially when you are workinh out.Not sure what dose you are on but once you start a workout plan you will see your needs decrease .
Avatar n tn I know because my Sunshine went through this also. He was eating like a hog and losing weight!!! I was frightened. He would also display odd behaviors once in a while. If this is what it is (all that is required to dx this is a blood test), there are three treatment options that I knew of then (year 2000): A particular medication whose name escapes me(something like Beclor)......This made Sunshine MUCH worse. Surgery on the thyroid gland to remove the benign tumor....
Avatar f tn My daughter is 6 years old, on concerta for ADHD and is losing weight. She has been on medications for adhd for over a year now. She was born at 35 weeks by c-section, hospitalized several times before age 2 for respiratory conditions. She has a congenital dislocation of her elbows, significantly more pronounced on left side, for which she is being monitored by Shriners hospital. No other significant medical history.
Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn I'm due June 19th so almost 17 weeks. how much weight have you ladies gained so far? I gained quite a lot with my first two lol. 60 with my son and 45 (better:)) with my daughter.
Avatar m tn I am a Medical Technologist, and co workers and I have had a discussion about FTA-ABS over 60. Our currently procedure is to perform a non-treponem(RPR) and if positive follow up with a treponem (FTA). However, if the patient is over 60, then procedure states a FTA is unnecessary. Why is this?
Avatar n tn I am a 42 year old female, am 5' 10' and weigh 139. My weight is down about 60 lbs in the last 2 years without trying or doing anything different. Last year I had a work up which revealed no reason for the weight loss. Recently, I had a CBC done and my eosinophils were 25.3. I have no allergies to my knowledge and do not have worms or any reason to believe I am infected with a parasite.
