Men's health and weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and weight loss


Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn The tingling in fingers, the mood swings, the stomach issues, and yes the weight loss and FATIGUE. I am only on 50 mg, and will not take more. I am surprised that so many people want to use this drug as a weight loss product. This is not a weight loss product, it is a serious drug, with serious side effects that you have to live with for the rest of your life. If I did not have to take it, I would not.
649848 tn?1534637300 It helps me stay on track when I'm focusing as I'm either pleased and continuing what I am doing in the weight maintenance (or weight loss) game or to change it up. When I don't weight myself, I'm usually avoiding the truth. ha ha. My doctor goes for the 'sweet spot' on the BMI scale. For me, this is kind of important because if I'm over it, then I see things like higher blood pressure, higher cholesterol. It seems to really correlate directly to excess weight for me.
4255670 tn?1355936577 Since this has been going on so long I just don't buy that it's from the stress or weight loss...I would think it would have resolved itself by now. And if it is genetics (which I don't believe either) then wouldn't my hair just be gradually thinning?? Seriously, I bought some clip in extensions a few weeks ago and now my hair is so thin on the top and sides that I can barely hide the clips. I'm SO frustrated and every time I have to take a shower and fix my hair...I just cry.
Avatar n tn I went today for my first week weight check and my second weight loss for my first week is 9.5 pounds!!!! Anyone else using Phentermine and B12? I would love to hear how other people have done on these meds. Good Luck to everyone trying...I want to hear your story!

147426 tn?1317269232 6 months later, with no treatment, they repeated the mental function testing and the MRI and compared results, including any loss of brain volume. Then they had the men apply a testosterone gel to their upper arm once daily for a year. At the end of the year they again repeated the entire testing. After a year of testosterone treatment, the men's average blood testosterone level was on the high end of the normal range.
Avatar n tn Is there is good list out there somewhere of hypothyroid symptoms that MEN are likely to experience, as opposed to women? A quick search reveals many similar lists, with symptoms such as "hair loss," "weight gain," and "abnormal menstrual cycles." The first two of these are things that I would guess the vast majority of men experience later in life, and the third is meaningless. Now in my mid-40s, I have started to feel sluggish and want to sleep more.
599170 tn?1300977493 I hate the way I feel every day, tired, bloated/constipated, the acne, hair loss, weight gain, then you have the mood swings and anxiety. I hate the fact that my body has about nothing feminine left to it. I am on bio progesterone and 2 grains of armour although I am feeling a bit better, I feel as though I have hit a pot hole and gotten a flat and am stranded and the doctors don't care they don't understand how horrible I feel day in and day out. They blame it on depression.
Avatar f tn I found that on this diet my body is no longer craving bread or sweets and I am never hungry, I really feel that no matter what, if you want to lose weight and keep it off then you have to make a life style change and stick to it. This particular diet for me has worked very well. I was also on the HCG diet for month and was very helpful. both work well if you stick to it. Hard to say I know, but when you see the results you are motivated to keep with it.
Avatar f tn Generally, I do not think that targeting exercise to your heart rate is very important for the typical person who is trying to exercise to maintain general fitness/health and/or lose weight. In any case, there is a recent study that suggests that we should calculate women's "predicted maximum heart rate" differently from men's - using a slightly different formula. Using that formula of 206 - (0.88)(age), yours is about 171.
697132 tn?1232389372 This year, like many people, I'm aiming to lose weight and eat healthy. So, these trackers will be really helpful in keeping myself in check. I'm aiming to be healthier in 8 weeks, but even beyond then. I'm currently blogging my experiences on my blogger page, , and so feel free to watch and keep track along with me! well, there's not much else going on now. I'll update this later though. see ya!
Avatar m tn Since you have GERD your stomach is already sensitive and vitamins that you buy at drug stores and grocery stores could make things worse. Go to a health food store and look at the ingredients. Also ask some one that works there to help you find the best multi vitamin for you. Take care.
Avatar n tn yes ive heard that too that having your heart rate go up and down like that while working out is good for burning more calories, and strengthening your heart.
Avatar m tn I think this would be a very good time to schedule a complete work up to find out exactly why your so fatigued and experiencing brain fog. Set up an appointment and get to the bottom of your health issues.
Avatar n tn I've just recently noticed the elbow thing and am FREAKED OUT! I do believe it's related to hormones but could also be illness and weight loss... But the good news is that I do find that my hands really respond when I moisturize and - a big help - use gloves when I wash dishes. The other thing is I recently lost a bunch of weight too, and that's when I noticed the skin on my elbows. I think at least some of the problem is from the weight loss, which makes some sense.
Avatar n tn I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!
Avatar m tn Excessive hunger, weight gain. Did I mention diabetes and thyroid tests were within normal limits. Please help me or point me in the right direction. Thank you so much for hearing me today if you want to know anything else just ask and i will reply.
Avatar m tn In relation to men's sexual health, zinc is very important for testicular health and prostate health. The prostate gland contains more zinc than any other organ in the body. Zinc supplementation has been shown to increase free testosterone levels in the blood which increases libido, reduces fatigue, and improves overall sexual health. http://www.ourhealthwisdom.
Avatar n tn I would just take Lp-argimine and take up running or weight lifting and they'll be back. If not, it could be a sign of something serious, meaning you need a checkup with blood work. Diabetes is one cause of loss of erections. Erections are a barometer of men's health.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
1376247 tn?1278892259 I jogged, danced or swam every day and ate fresh foods. I stopped drinking alcohol and meditated. I also played little mind games with myself, forcing myself out of my comfort zones in various situations. I allowed myself to fully imagine the worse case scenarios and go through the feelings, desensitizing. Talking to the anesthesiologist- and officially requesting him - really helped a LOT with trust and info.
Avatar n tn I had my transfer on 7/3 and I only made 3 eggs (they all fertilized) & they put all three in. I was told that 2 were week & the cramping is so bad. I wish I could take a pain killer. My back feels like it is breaking. I'm not sure how to feel...I want to be positive but I'm thinking a little negative & I'm afraid to talk about it. If someone can get back to us to let us know if they got pregnant with weak embroys?
Avatar n tn I have know a few men who have been to the weight loss clinics, have received the injections, and have been successful in the weight loss process. Hope this helps, and good luck on your venture!!
Avatar m tn And even though almonds are relatively high in fat and calories, studies show that eating almonds can actually help with weight loss (their protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fats provide the feeling of fullness, preventing overeating). Eggs The best protein source on the planet, eggs consistently outrank milk, beef, whey, and soy in the quality of protein they provide. In addition to containing all nine essential amino acids, eggs are loaded with nutrients.

Avatar f tn I recommend sites such as Men's Health and other sites specializing in body building for GOOD and EFFECTIVE advice on diet and exercising. Those sites and magazines don't only give advice suitable for bodybuilders. They are useful for everybody. I deeply apologize if any of this advice was not helpful or if I offended you in anyway. I hope I didn't sound condescending. Good luck with your efforts and NEVER EVER give up. Be strong!!! and when you're working out say to yourself NO PAIN!!
Avatar n tn I am very active and have been regularly working out using the Eliptical, Treadmill and the Arc Trainer plus doing the weight machines and lunges and squats and have never had a problem now all of a sudden I cannot fully bend my knee or it feels like it is burning and tearing.
