Weight chart anorexia

Common Questions and Answers about Weight chart anorexia


Avatar n tn So I just gave up on eating, which I know is not healthy. I'm thining it could be Anorexia induced by stress. What do you think? I'm drifting away from the majority of my closest friends, I feel like they can't be trusted. I don't know, I'm only fifteen and a Sophmore in High School. I can deal with this, I just need a little help.

Have you tried is to engage him in the kitchen more because they usually love to be a part of making food. Have him help you with preparation of food and setting the table. Hopefully this will increase his interest in other types of food. Important part is to relax and do not make a big deal about what he eats or does not eat at meals.

At 5'9" and 118 pounds, you were significantly underweight for ANY size frame. Even if you have a large frame, you are pretty close to where you should be. I know it might be hard but you need to eat several small meals every day.
Avatar n tn I have digenerative disc disease and my neirologist just prescribed topamax, he said it would help with the pain and tingling but could result in weight loss. I am wondering if prescribing topamax for ddd is common among neurologists? I can't seem to find any other information related to topamax as a pain med, only information I have is that it's a powerful drug with lots of side effects, most not so good. The weight loss aspect is the only plus...
Avatar n tn I would say that it is a 50/50 chance whether you would lose weight in the long run as the product wasn't designed as a weight loss product. (but I'm not a doctor so your dr. might be able to tell you what to expect).

Using the Weight Tracker also gives you the ability to email it to your doctor as a point-of-reference before or during your appointment so he/she can see your progress. Take a look at it – I guarantee you, you will start using it!
Avatar n tn I was looking back on my weight loss chart and saw that within 3 weeks of starting lexapro each time, I had a significant weight gain. I went from 175 to 185 the first time and then continued to gain despite following the program and exercising. When I went off the med, the weight began to drop and I made it down below 200. I started it again in February this year and within 3 weeks, here came another 10 pounds and it's been steadilly going up ever since.
1938479 tn?1325709220 If Arnold Schwarzenegger was to use a BMI (weight vs height) chart while bodybuilding, it would have classified him as obese. Another way to look at fat versus muscles is that a cubic inch of muscle will weigh more than a cubic inch of fat. Muscle is about 18 percent more dense than fat. So a better question is am I in shape or do i need to convert more areas of fat to muscle? With that said, here is a weight chart that should only be used to give you an idea, so don't take it as gospel.
Avatar f tn BMI is a useful way to determine a healthy weight. You can find a BMI calculator and other tools for determining a healthy weight on the CDC or NIH web sits. But healthy weight is only part of recovery, as I'm sure you know. I hope you're working on the other aspects, from good nutrition to the mental side of EDs and monitoring for anorexia sequalae.
Avatar m tn I’ve always been fit I skateboard, ride bikes, walk at least 2 km’s a day and I’m still gaining weight, my mother and two sisters are also over weight, my mum can’t loose weight where as my sisters can so is it genetic? If someone has any idea’s please write back.
Avatar n tn I only know mine was not behavioral- once I saw a doctor write in my chart that I had anorexia, and it upset me that I was so underweight- I was sick every night too and hated it. But when I asked him about the diagnosis he explained anorexia 'nervosa' is a diagnosis that is given to someone that "wills and desires weight loss" Anorexia just meant underweight....
Avatar f tn but then a nurse who was incompetent got the wrong chart and so she told me my weight.175! So, i ran out of the office and got a scale. i found my diet diary app and am going nuts. I recently got more labs done and still my labs are horrible. I am tired and losing hair...all the symptoms besides weight gain are hard to deal with. i am 5ft 7in so 175 was not ok with me.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure exactly how late, but my gut instinct is telling I've lost too much weight and with the weight I've lost I've lost my mentural cycle as well. This scares me because if that's so that means I'm going to have to gain weight.
Avatar f tn He has one poop a day that is not at all formed but doesn't seem watery. What does this sound like??? Anorexia? Oral aversion? Food allergy? Silent GERD? Something else? What does one do??? Thank you!!!
Avatar m tn I have had stomache problems for 8 years and i keep getting sicker I have a constant nausea and additional cramping I have had a GI doctor who can't figure out what is wrong im loosing hope am I krazy I keep going to the ER with pain and nausea and a few times I had a UTI which was the cause of the nausea other times i had the flu but they have put my on so much medicine( aciphex, nexium, belladonna alkaloids, phenergan, etc) and now the Doctors are saying that it is self induced i know its real
Avatar m tn Just as a comparative thing, I read a stages of anorexia thing that probably wasn't medically accepted, but my wife is at stage 5 of 6 on that chart. I feel so helpless I wish I could do something but she refuses to seek treatment as she doesn't believe in therapy at all and on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being best she said she is on the lower end in terms of how much she wants to recover.
Avatar f tn And I thought 132lbs is the lowest I can go for my height that's what it says on the weight chart I found on google. For my height and build what is the lowest I can go???
Avatar f tn The doctor didn't say I have a eating disorder but he didn't say I don't. He did say that if I were to look at chart for symptoms of developing anorexia I would be checking checking off every symptom. And believe me I do check every one off! He wants me to cut my water intake in half. He says I need to immediately. I've been drinking two 1.5 liter bottles of water a day, so 3 liters of water. I can't stop drinking all that water though.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Anorexia once as a young adult, but I had no trouble getting over it. I just wanted to be thin and really worked at it. But, I went without a period for a year. And, not that I know if the two are related, but I went through menopause in my early 40's. My mother was in her mid-fifties. Then you mentioned exercise and I added a bulging cervical disk to my list of possibilities. Physical therapy can help tremendously.

Avatar n tn DO you know what weight based INF charts recommend? I'd advise you to cut back to the weight based chart recommendations only, and that right there should give you considerable relief from the nausea/appetite issues. That way you wouldn't be risking a breakthrough. Also, you could use some adjuncts to help with sleep and nausea. There are some liver friendly anti-nausea meds, there is also an antidepressant known to help sleep, increase appetite and be liver friendly.
Avatar f tn I did try starvation for 2 days in the summer but stoped when I read somewhere that it slows your matabalizm down so I would just gain weight in the long run and I don't want to gain weight cuz I'm petrefied if gaining weight. Last time I gained weight I gained 5 pounds and it made me litterly want to die. I've since lost weight though.
Avatar f tn The reason I don't want to wait any longer and am so tired of this untreatable constipation is because I have a recent history of severe anorexia nervosa. I consider myself to have been in recovery for over a year now. May be I was triggered by my Sashkia dying, or may be I'm just fed up, but it's just so frustrating that since I'm constipated all the time and my intestines are so swollen I have to wear baggy shirts or dresses and have to pass by all the cute clothes I want to wear.
Avatar n tn I can't seem to find anything on the internet except about anorexia, which doesn't seem right because he wants to gain weight.
579258 tn?1250652943 I've struggled with weight most of my life, including bouts of anorexia and rapid weight gain. In 2005, I managed to lose 70 lbs (the healthy way, with diet and exercise) and just as I stopped caring about that extra 20 lbs, I found myself gaining a little over 40 lbs back. I simply do not have the metabolism to eat what I would like, so I have to start my healthful, somewhat birdlike eating habits over again and find a way to maintain that after I achieve my ideal weight.
Avatar f tn It seems like he weight is coming off on its own now. I don't crave anything. I'm hoping to reach my goal by January. I'm not worried about the holidays because I have been turned off all food and I don't think it will be difficult to continue following what the naturopath has told me to do. By the way...eat a lot of yogourt..it really facilitates weight loss. I eat about 500g of yogourt per day and drink 2-3 glasses of milk per day.
1035252 tn?1427231433 I've mentioned that I've had trouble eating and gaining weight with this pregnancy. and after scanning my chart, they were tossing around the term "pregnancy anorexia" yesterday. wtf? i've never heard of it, and i DON'T think I have it...but when I told them that all I had eaten yesterday (adding to the troubles I was having) was 2 bites of banana at 10AM...they looked through my chart and started clucking their tongues. just curious if this is a true thing ...
186606 tn?1263513790 Deb for those of us with serious long term brain problems...can you put the stats back out? I know some people are smart enough to chart 4 week PCRS and stuff of other people - but I've never been that brilliant. And the one question I have is - how early would you be thinking of stopping? If there is any way you could continue of course that would be the best solution but if you just CANT and you go as far as possible...maybe thats just better than nothing but only YOU really know the answer.
