Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss in children


Avatar n tn Suggest making milkshakes (milk, ice cream, and fresh fruit or frozen) or yogurt smoothies (yogurt, fresh fruit, and frozen fruit) and give it to him in place of milk (in a sippy cup) for meals and snacks for additional calories/protein to help increase his weight. Engage him in the kitchen more. Children love to be a part of making food. Have him help you with preparation of food, make the milkshakes and setting the table. Hopefully this will increase his interest in other types of food.

Avatar f tn I do take walks everyday and I'm not sure if that could have something to do with my weight loss too or not. I'm just concerned because as I said, I have three children already and this has never happened to me.
Avatar f tn The issue is I am so tired all the time from dealing with my children. Is walking enough to get you to loose weight? I don't eat bad foods or anything, but I am just not as active as I use to be. Our family is going to Disney in November and I was wanting to get rid of this extra stuff before then.
658757 tn?1397800478 What does your doctor say about this weight loss? Do you have any other symptoms besides the weight loss? I would have my doctor do further tests to see why you are losing weight.
Avatar f tn She had always been a slow weight gainer, but not is loosing weight. We had her evaluated for sensory issues and found none. She refuses to eat on most days for about 3 days then will eat a bunch to fill her belly then go back on strike. No medical tests have been done, but she had fallen from the 10% to below the 5th. What can we do to help her?

Avatar f tn Some people tend to want to totally avoid food when their stomach feels upset, so they loose lots of weight. I know in my case, when I was little, my mom was the type that always soothed bad feelings with comfort food, and taught us kids to do the same. When I started having the nausea, I discovered that if I didn't let my stomach get completely empty, the nausea wasn't as bad.

Avatar n tn She is a very active child, always outdoors, playing with three to four other children. Rides bikes, walks, plays ball, etc.. but we are at a loss as to help her loose weight. We do not keep any candy in the house, stopped using any sugar at all over two years ago. Limit her intake, and yet she still gains weight. What can I do?
Avatar f tn So many people assume that in order to lose weight, they have to constantly do strenuous exercise....And in reality, this isn’t the case either. Now, to understand how exercise effects weight-loss, you have to understand how your body creates energy, and there are only 2 ways it does it. One is by burning fat and the other is by burning blood sugar, or glucose. Even when you’re not doing anything strenuous your body still burns fat. It’s known as “Resting Metabolic Rate.
Avatar n tn ) I also heard that a cleanse could also jumpstart your wieght loss. I did one before and I did lose a little weight -- colonix is the one I did. Anyway -- I commend you for sticking to it.
233622 tn?1279338505 We both lost weight ~ she had a very drastic weight loss, I didn't. I believe the difference was that on the WW program, they teach you more "how" to eat and learning good choices along with portion control. I didn't really have my daily menus planned out ~ I don't like using a menu. I really want to do it on my own. In the Jenny Craig program, my sister bought her food from them. It was already made ~ all she had to do was heat it up.

Avatar n tn Extreme thirst Frequent urination Drowsiness, lethargy Sugar in urine Sudden vision changes Increased appetite Sudden weight loss Fruity, sweet, or wine-like odor on breath Heavy, labored breathing Stupor, unconsciousness If you think you have diabetes, call a doctor immediately, and drink fluids WITHOUT SUGAR to prevent dehydration.
Avatar f tn So much of Chiari is about loss: income, socialization, understanding, " normality". I was just looking at the forum list, and there is weight loss, memory loss, & hair loss; nothing on bereavement. everyone knows what that is, but even then, people are supposed to "get over it". Having a chronic illness is really like living in a separate universe. It's like you're expected to die or get well.
Avatar n tn Especially given the family history, he need to do adopt an appropriate lifestyle anyway. If after several months of real dieting and exercise and weight loss his cholesterol is still elevated, then I would consider medication.
