Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss organizations


Avatar n tn If you are thinking of liposuction, this surgery is not designed for weight loss, but rather body contouring. If you are thinking of gastric bypass surgery, then you should consult with a bariatric surgeon. The cheapest, least risky, and healthiest technique for weight loss is to take in less calories than you expend, i.e. proper diet and exercise. Fad diets do not work - ask any registered nutritionist. If you need help, then organizations like Weight Watchers are a good place to start.
Avatar m tn Mango Lassi Made from fermented yogurt lassi is a fermented food that contains many healthy bacteria, or probiotics, which decrease bloating and reduce inflammation—two key contributors to weight loss.
Avatar n tn This is a physical response that must also be addressed and Dr. Simeon's weight loss cure protocol also addresses this issue. Using the Weight Loss Cure Protocol, all of these issues are addressed and handled easily. You can expect to lose an average of one pound per day without feeling hungry. You will lose fat from the problem areas like your hips, thighs, and buttocks without having to exercise. You will see your body transformed and reshaped as if you had undergone liposuction.
Avatar n tn Yes, that is the correct test results. (TSH - 0.004; Thyroxine (T4) - 10.8; T3 Uptake - 28; Free Thyroxine ndex - 3.0) I will ask him about doing a FT-4 test. I thought most people that were hyper would see weight loss instead of weight gain??
Avatar n tn Some hypos will lose weight and 3 lbs per week is not all that bad, however it will if the weight loss continues and then it could be any health issue. Or doctor could have made a mistake, some do that you know. Take your thyroid medication hours away from estratest. Good luck! GL January is Thyroid Awareness Month, a month when various organizations put together informational efforts to help us all learn more about thyroid disease here in the U.S.
Avatar f tn Her symptoms have been racing heart, hand sweats, light-headedness, fatigue, weight loss, intermittent vomiting and nausea,and abdominal pain at times. She had a full CBC in late November which showed a TSH of 0.113. Her symptoms remained, and now her full thryoid bloods are as follows: T3- 473, TSH- 0.011, Total T4->15.0. She is only 19 years old and scheduled for an RAIU and ultrasound. My Dr. is baffled by the vomiting and nausea. Any thoughts/suggestions?
Avatar n tn Hi! I have been living with Grave's Disease for 13 years. Initially my thyroid was treated with radioactive iodine & I have been taking Levoxyl every since. Occassionally my levels will need adjusting (after the birth of my children etc.). I recently had my TSH level checked & it was 0.3. My doctor sent me a letter stating they wanted to change me from the .150 ucg of Levoxly (taking 1/2 on Sundays) to .137 b/c my TSH is still borderline for being too low.
Avatar f tn We don’t have a weight loss problem today, we have a “keeping weight off” problem Weight loss will be the healthiest, safest and most likely to be permanent if you set your goal for about two pounds per week (and even if you lose only a single pound each week, that is healthy progress).
Avatar n tn I personally researched it and read an Investigators Brochure (a brochure that states all facts about the drug, including side effects, composition, studies conducted and their outcomes) about HCG and didnt see data that supported the claim of weight loss, but that doesnt mean that it doesnt happen for some individuals. Basically, what it means is that there just hasnt been enough studies conducted to support the claims. Anyway.....
2015036 tn?1333001388 They're so blasted expensive, that I can only afford to replace it once- so when??? My weight loss has slowed down to about 1 to 1 1/2lbs a week. I have no idea how long this phase will last, but in the meantime- I'm in danger of injuring myself in a leg brace that's too big! Has anyone else had to have a brace altered more than once? Can I pad it? It's starting to cause pain in my ankle, and hip areas. I can barely keep the darn thing on my leg at all.
Avatar f tn I had a weight loss challenge with my boss , we both started similar weight around 105.5kg each , the challenge was for 63 days and the loser paid the winner 1k as a incentive We did the challenge to improve our health choices and change our eating habits , fitness ect I trained hard getting up to running 5km a day which I proud of and ate healthy and got to 89.4 kg over 15kg loss We weight ourself 48 hours b4 the weight in day I was 91.
525545 tn?1293184794 I am so depressed, I have been trying to get one for nealy a year.. I am at a loss of what to do now. I don't qualify for Medicare. I guess I will just have to give up on the scooter. I am so depressed about this. I am so angry I just want to sit with my soft blanket and cry. I just want to give up for a while.
Avatar n tn But, now, not only do I need help finding help, I need help paying for it. I really need some specific info; i.e., names of organizations, phone numbers, addresses, etc. if it is available. Any suggestions are appreciated, as the lost sleep, gained weight, irritability, loss of pleasures, lost concentration, and the whole can of worms is just...well, let's just say I've enjoyed all of this I can stand. Besides which, it doesn't help in the job search. Many thanks.
Avatar n tn t4=11.5 Free t4= 1.33 tsh=2.73 Is this normal for a 29 year old female 5ft. 99lbs?
Avatar n tn Hi there! The theoretical assumptions made by random organizations that animal protein causes acidification of the body’s normal pH causing calcium loss from the bone are baseless. The body pH is more or less maintained under normal circumstances and is not related to bone absorption i.e. bone is not a major pH buffer system in the body as these people tend to believe.
Avatar n tn Maybe others will come along with additional insight. I'm not strongly versed on weight loss programs but do know diet fads are just that, fads. Injecting synthetic pregnancy hormones to lose weight is just weird and sounds dangerous. This link on hCG is a must read and contradicts all the marketing hype and mumbo-jumbo that is abound on the inet. http://tinyurl.com/hCG-hoax.
Avatar n tn Drugs may be used to reduce fluid buildup and to relieve pressure. Weight loss and cessation of certain drugs (including oral contraceptives, tetracycline, and a variety of steroids) may lead to improvement. Surgery may be needed to remove pressure on the optic nerve. Therapeutic shunting, which involves surgically inserting a tube to drain CSF from the lower spine into the abdominal cavity, may be needed to remove excess CSF and relieve CSF pressure. What is the prognosis?
483733 tn?1326802046 We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn The best weight-loss medication program will also incorporate a weight-loss diet and exercise. OK as you see..for a very slight weight (not fat) loss...why take the risk ? and it clearly states..excercise,diet are #1 and no long tern studies have been done..and as soon as you stop..all weight is re-gained..this is junk..stop looking for a quick fix...its not worth the risks..
901807 tn?1287019388 MedHelp is where I get/give support and information, especially on weight loss and dieting. Plus, I love the trackers, PHR and the accountability it gives me. And .. MedHelp has a FOOD JOURNAL in the works so I'll be here every day, many times throughout the day! I'm on FB and it's become an easy way to keep tabs on friends, family, business associates, high school classmates from XX (a long time ago ..
Avatar f tn It is healthier for moms as well - women who breastfeed their babies are less likely to get breast cancer in the future and are less likely to develop diabetes later in life, plus it helps with weight loss. Plus it's free. Which helps a lot. Since in the first year the average baby can easily drink $1200-1700 worth of formula.
Avatar f tn It's easier for me not to eat at all rather than eat small amounts but I realize that this is unhealthy and I can't keep that weight off when I start eating again. Do you know of any strategies to help with long term weight loss bearing in mind I have a continuous grhelin production. I am wheelchair bound and can no longer exercise due to a demyelinating myelopathy. Thanks for any help you can provide.
Avatar m tn This is seemingly a hopeless disease. There are non-profit organizations such as Morgellons Research Foundation which have propped up to bring awareness to the Morgellons disease. There are also treatments such as Nutrasilver that relieves most of the symptoms in a relatively short timeframe. Some people despise these companies for capitalizing off of someone else's pain and suffering.
Avatar f tn I had six bands on WB blot too and I've been incredibly sick for two years - IgG 23, 30, 39, 41, 58, 83/93 - weight loss, double vision, vertigo (24-7), muscle atrophy all over, hearing loss, mild dementia, cognitive loss - at times an inability to read/speak/use grammar and vocabulary correctly, massive hand weakness, sleeping 15 hours a day for 9 months...Just because you don't have this yet, doesn't mean you won't. Now, whether or not to treat is a complicated question.
Avatar f tn Hi, thank you for your reply, They both have put on weight and find it very hard to shift , daughter (2) also has PCOS which makes it hard for her to loss weight. She also hardly ever has a monthly period . Daughter (1) hair has been thinning as well. Very moody both of them but then that could be put down to where we are living as the life here is very unstable.
Avatar n tn I know of a company named Transformations that has a weight loss clinic in Tulsa, OK that offers hCG. They do that in combination with diet and appetite suppressants. If you want to find out more about them, their site is transformations.cc Hope that helps!
1344197 tn?1392822771 Compounded Bioidentical Hormones have received a great deal of coverage in news, on talk shows, and in magazines over the past several years.

1511477 tn?1290497385 my question is does anybody have any ideas what can cause liver 'issues', neurological problems, fatigue, weight loss and loss of general well being?!
Avatar m tn 4th generation combination HIV antigen/antibody tests provide completely reliable, conclusive tests at 4 weeks. Package insert assessments and the assessments of many governmental organizations are more conservative than is warranted by research studies, in part because they are bound by the original design of their studies (i.e.
