Avatar n tn As a result of my hypothyroidism, I have developed and eating disorder over the years which I am finally working on. My nutritionist, who I do like, wants me to drink whey protein shakes (1 per day) to get my protein levels up. A friend of mine with hypo told me to STOP drinking them, and considering I am on new medication (Armour-2 grains) and gaining weight with recurring hypo symptoms (please, do not tell me to eat less, I am eating under 1300 calories a day), she may be right.
Avatar n tn I have not found out if I have diabetes by a doctor but I get the shakes and lightheadedness all the time and some people say it could be diabetes. So Im wondering wheather or not I may have some form of diabetes or something else. I have tried to find out if I have diabetes by using a home kit to check and I didnt have diabetes.

Avatar m tn You should consult a nutrition expert and plan out the diet depending on what you can tolerate and what you cannot. Just taking protein shakes may not help. Chicken broth, and white of egg make good protein options, but may not help if you cannot tolerate them. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.

Avatar m tn In a 2015 study in the American Journal of Physiology Endocrinology and Metabolism, researchers found that those who ate twice as much protein as the Recommended Daily Allowance had greater net protein balance and muscle protein synthesis that means it was easier for them to maintain and build muscle, and keep their metabolisms high. So even if you eat a burger for lunch and a couple of pork chops for dinner, you’re still coming up short in the protein department.

Avatar n tn Type 1(juvenile) diabetes is most often diagnosed in childhood, but young adults and seniors can develop type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the persons pancreas stops producing insulin, resulting in the rise of blood sugar. Because Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmunine disease (like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis), the person's own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. More than 1 million Americans have Type 1 diabetes, for which there is no cure.

Avatar n tn Protein shakes can actually add weight to you. As can eating so soon before bed. Your body starts slowing down and preparing for sleep around 7p.m. Also all carbs, complex or simple, can add weight to those with a damaged metabolism such as diabetics. Add more raw vegetables as those will keep your metabolism working. Drink plenty of water to flush your system. Add solid protein (meat) to your dinner. Every morning, drink a glass (8 fl oz) of warm water with juice from half a lemon.

Avatar m tn I've been eating between 1000 and 1500 calories a day and making protein shakes and have increased protein intake to approx. 80g/day. I lost 8 pounds the first month, but since that time I've now gained 6 pounds....I'm sedentary and for health reasons it is difficult for me to get much exercise, I do walk two or three times a week for about 20-25 minutes. How can I be gaining weight? Is it possible that the increase in protein is causing muscle gain?
Avatar f tn I drank like those protein shakes and it helped me personally. I have diabetes so it was Lucerne Shakes, but I imagine stuff like Weight Watchers shakes would work also. I felt like the thickness and milkiness soothed it better.

1434731 tn?1382725984 So this is my way and so far I feel great, little hungry between meals but I'm going to get some protein shakes for filler. I feel very energetic. I need to start working out but I have back issues so I have to start slow. I cleaned the hell out of my house yesterday! Today I have run up and down the stair a bunch of times doing laundry and made a apple pie for my gramma. She has overflowing apple trees in her back yard!
Avatar m tn Don't remember if I ate something sweet like cookies or juice, but when I ate something in my case that had protein or carbs in it, I felt better. I would have this checked out by your doctor. Good luck.
