Avatar f tn immediately. They can aid you in overcoming the depression of pregnancy weight gain and guide you in normal pregnancy weight gain (maybe refer you to a pregnancy nutritionist). Congratulations on the pregnancy, and good luck!
Avatar m tn I took a blood test and everything is normal. My LDL is low and HDL is on the higher range of normal. I have started eating right and exercising for a minimum of 150 min a week. Kindly let me know if this should be enough to make changes to my health in terms of not being a victim to certain illness in the future.
Avatar m tn Dear Junie, To know about obesity and over weight we have to know about BMI. BMI = Body mass index and is calculated as weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters (kg/m2) Results = BMI of 24 to 27 kg/m2 is defined as overweight, and a BMI of over 27 kg/m2 as obese. So now , i hope, you and judge about obesity and overweight stuffs.
2044355 tn?1330037867 or shorter you are obese (BMI of 29.8). Normal weight is typically said to be between a BMI of 18 and 25, overweight is between 25 and 29 and obese is over 29. I'm unsure of where the line is exactly but I know at 40 bmi you are considered morbidly obese. Now because of your young age you are probably still growing, so it's best to not be at the lowest normal wieght possible.
Avatar n tn I think that what your mom is going thru is pretty common as in the fear taking over when people have angina and they do anything they can to avoid get the symptoms of angina which in her case is staying sedentary to avoid the angina. Gaining weight is never a good thing unless you realize that you are underweight and need to put on a couple of pounds.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if being heavy because of weight lifting and not really over weight in the sense of being fat is still a negative. I am wondering if I should just focus on slimming down for treatment reasons. I am 30 years old 6'2 and 240lbs but most people that I tell this too find it hard to believe. I am very broad and muscular and have been my whole life. My liver is in great shape according to my doc and I most likely have only had the virus a couple years.
Avatar n tn Due to the probable inactivity as a result of the numbness and /or pain in limbs and other parts of the body, is morbid obesity one of the symptoms of Chiari, and what would one do with it. Would PT place the patient at risk or would it be to their advantage? What would be the course of treatment, Pt and or diet?
Avatar n tn You should work as hard as possible in the meantime at losing weight. You may not get down to 'target' but any weight loss will help both you and your chances of having a healthy safe pregnancy. Between now and March you could lose 10-15lbs. As you lose weight, your chances of conceiving naturally will increase. You still have 5 - 10 years of childbearing opportunity ahead of you, presumably you don't want more than 2 - 3 children, so there is still time...
634733 tn?1316629592 I've also struggled with my weight for most of my life (I remember a juice fast when I was 13), I'm trying to remember if I'd actually hit "obese" around 18, and its very possible. A few years later I was at normal weight and climbing mountains. Gee, if I had lost weight sooner, would I have not have gotten MS?
Avatar n tn (the first time on my honeymoon) The public health care doctors(I have no medical insurance) told me I weight too much and my hormones go crazy and my brain rejects the pregnancy. I weight 250 and Ive been obese my whole life and I just started a diet program to lose 100 lbs. I was just wondering why is it that My body is micarrying my babies...I know Im obese, but they didnt tell me what exactly happened.
Avatar f tn Obese patients can get Graves and there is not always weight loss. The Free T4 looks to be high-normal but the TT3 may be low-normal -- would need to look at reference range for that lab specifically. TPO is not specific for Graves, would suggest confirmation with TSI blood test and or I-123 uptake scan.
Avatar f tn ) My Blood pressure remains stable, urine is always normal and all blood tests are normal. I go for my Glucose test tomorrow and will get the results soon after that so we shall see if i have gestational diabetes. The two risk factors for heavy pregnant women is gestational diabetes and high blood pressure. BUT those can happen in skinny women too.. Good luck girl.. I am pullin for you!!
Avatar m tn My wife and I want to begin trying to get pregnant, but she is currently obese and I am concerned about the health risks to her and our future child if she were to get pregnant at her current weight. She has struggled with excess weight her whole life and is skeptical that she will be able to lose much. I think at this point she would have to lose about 30 pounds to have a BMI below 30.
574118 tn?1305138884 This is excellent for your heart related questions whether it's valve, cardiomyopathy or fluid retention. As for weight problems, there is a forum for weight loss but I think that would have to be up to your Mom to face that. Unless you're fixing all her meals she'll have to reach a point where she's ready to take care of the extra weight and hopefully improve her health. The extra weight does put an extra burden on the heart however.
Avatar m tn I would also suggest, if it is a real motivator for you to be keeping the idea firmly in your mind that you will be able to live a normal long lifespan if you lose the weight, by all means, keep it firmly in mind. When we're changing our diet and exercise habits to be more healthy and lose weight, we can use all the prompts we can think of to give ourselves.
Avatar f tn No, weight loss is a symptom of the flare up. Chrons and obesity don't go together when the chrons is active (flare up).
2166244 tn?1337096077 012 in first evaluation and after 2 months is in 0.1), T3 and T4 are normal. Doctor says I should be Hyper but I am obese, so after the second blood test (2 months after) results are similar and I can´t lose weight (I´m on a diet). It seems that my hypophysis is not working well but T3 and T4 are ok, so everything is confussing. Also, doctor asked me about my period and is ok (regular), so doctor says he give up. I need to check my cortisol level, but my tension is low/normal.
Avatar m tn There have been several studies on some indigenous groups (some Native America groups, some Indigenous Australian groups, and others) which show that when they switch from their normal diets to a Western diet high in sugars and processed foods, they gain a tremendous amout of weight and/or become diabetic. They also develop other diseases such as heart disease.
Avatar m tn your just growing but i suggest you slow down and find something else to pull you away from constantly eating. there is medication for this. but this is normal is obesity runs in your family. so chill out. your fine. but you need to learn to contain yourself or you'll end up hurting yourself and not know it. life will get hard. but whatever. good luck!
Avatar f tn He is also reaching his adolescent and teenage years, so he may be putting on a lot of growth in length and height, but not necessarily any weight yet. What was his last weight? When was his last veterinary visit? Also, the type of food you are feeding could factor into his appetite as well. Lower quality, cheap store brands often have lesser energy and that means the dog needs to eat more to meet his caloric needs. What are you feeding him now?
86075 tn?1238118691 The loss of estrogen that accompanies menopause contributes to the development of obesity and high blood pressure (hypertension), according to studies conducted in female rats. Estrogen is known to protect women against heart disease. When women reach menopause, their estrogen levels drop dramatically and they lose this protection and often put on weight Dr. Lourdes A. Fortepiani of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, reported. The findings were reported by Dr.
Avatar f tn I get what he's saying, but then I remember my old self (same weight) and I wasn't feeling this off. My tolerance for how I feel is extremely low, and has been giving me severe anxiety and depression. I've been crying almost every day, and feel like I'm in a constant state of complacent fear, "Well, I'm feeling *enter symptom here* again. I'll try and push through it the best I can.
Avatar f tn My question though, is about my weight... I'm a really tall girl (about 6'1!) but have put on a lot of weight the the couple years due to some serious depression from losing my Father, Grandmother, Uncle, and Cousin all in the same year. (I'm not making excuses...I know I don't jog and go to the gym five times a week) but oddly, I don't eat a lot of really fatty food or sweets either. But still, I'm currently at 350 lbs.
Avatar f tn then CHRONIC weight gain...Specifically for my daughter...morbid obesity. Understand, this isn't a matter of being a few pounds over weight. At an early age, she played soccer...we noticed something changed about her body. Tiny then literally started puffing up and gaining fat in unusual areas for a child her age. We watched everything she put in her mouth... She gained over 28 pounds in less than 2 years, with hieght increasing normally...but wieght gain three times what it should have been.
Avatar n tn Doctors insist she has a bad American kid diet with no excercise and deny that short term steroid use could cause her weight problem. But I know there is something wrong! She can not eat like a normal child because she will gain weight so easily. My daughter was breastfed for two years as a baby. I have always fed her lots of fruit and veggies, limited carbs and even cut out all white flour and potato products... Also all processed foods from her diet. Very little change. I lost 10lbs...
Avatar f tn Genotype 3 HCV appears to directly promote the build-up of fat in liver cells, while steatosis in genotype 1 patients appears to be linked with co-existing metabolic conditions such as insulin resistance. Management of Obesity The Mayo Clinic researchers reported that reducing body weight and improving underlying metabolic factors may help "overcome the low sustained viral response rates observed in obese patients infected with HCV.
Avatar f tn Have you seen the photos of those rats who are fed GMO grain opposed to the ones that are fed 'normal' grain ? The GMO fed rats have globular fat. No doubt the obesity problem is a combination of factors which include both diet and exercise.
Avatar n tn 80 optimal 120-129 80-84 normal 130-139 84-89 high normal , note systolic 120-139 and diastolic 80-89 are also considered prehypertensive , a reading of 115/75 are now considered optimal or the new normal. Mild hypertension = 140-159 systolic 90-99 diastolic Moderate hypertension= 160-179 systolic 100-109 diastolic Severe hypertension= 180 and above systolic 110 and above diastolic. If you are concerned with your readings consult with your doctor.
Avatar f tn Underweight: less than 18.5 Normal weight: 18.5 - 25 Overweight: 25 - 30 Obesity: greater than 30 By these standards, the OP, though only 16, is actually thin, just barely into the normal range. Hypertension can definitely be inherited. One of my friends, though healthy and normal weight, had it when he was 18. His daughter developed it when she was 18. Both are on lifelong treatment for it.
Avatar m tn I have been taking them at home since this reading and they have been between 102-113 every morning. With normal Trigs, normal blood pressure, normal weight in a person who exercises, does this make sense? If I am pre diabetic, I don't even know what course to take to prevent it from going into diabetes. Any help would be appreciated.
