I exercise 50-90 minutes a day, eat clean food, never exceed 1600 calories and I cannot stop gaining weight. (174 cm; 64 kg). It is slow, but constant?

I exercise 50-90 minutes a day, eat clean food, never exceed 1600 calories and I cannot stop gaining weight. (174 cm; 64 kg). It is slow, but constant?

Something amiss: Based on your age, gender, weight and height your basal metabolic rate is around 1400 cal/day: thats what you need just to live without moving at all! Odds are you burn more than 200 cal just moving about, without including your exercise. So either something awry with you metabolism and/or your estimated caloric intake. You should review this with your doc. ...Read more

What's effect of low water intake on a fetus (27w pregnant)? Usually drink 8+ 8 oz glasses during the week but haven't drank as much past 2 days.

Dehydration: Can cause premature labor. That is the biggest risk: contractions that evolve into labor. If you generally stay well hydrated, probably not an issue. Just increase your fluid intake (good water, not sodas). If you feel cramping, see your doctor. ...Read more

I have slow transient chronic constipation & I've suffered for years. Over the last year, I've been taking a double dose of miralax (polyethylene glycol) everyday. Safe?

Eliminate all the grains: rice,barley,oats; also milk,bananas,apples. Within a few days your stool should soften dramatically. You don't want to become laxative dependent. You may have megacolon.

Calories every day and exercising 4 times a week (burning 400 - 450 calories). Will i maintain weight?

Calories every day and exercising 4 times a week (burning 400 - 450 calories). Will i maintain weight?

You need enough: Calories to maintain your metabolic rate. Calculate your weight in pounds and multiply by 10 to determine your baseline. Then add the activity amount of calorie burning each day, 10% for minimal activity and more for vigorous activity (at least 30%). It appears you are able to determine your activity caloric burning so add that amount to your baseline on those days. Adjust based on loss/gain. ...Read more

I'd elevated TSH;around 18, taking eltroxin 100 mcg daily, it's under control now but I look bloated, height 5.7", 145 lbs, age 29. What is wrong here?

I'd elevated TSH;around 18, taking eltroxin 100 mcg daily, it's under control now but I look bloated, height 5.7", 145 lbs, age 29. What is wrong here?

Hypothyroidism: Eltroxin (levothyroxine) is used for hypothyroidism. If your TSH is 18, then you probably need an increase in dose of your eltroxin, although 100 mcg is probably enough to make you feel better, but a dose that normalizes your TSH will make you feel normal. Make sure you take it on an empty stomach and without hot liquids. See your doctor. ...Read more

If I normally eat irregular. 3, 000 cals. A day and strt only one meal a day that's 1500 cals and same time each day will I lose weight?

If I normally eat irregular. 3, 000 cals. A day and strt only one meal a day that's 1500 cals and same time each day will I lose weight?

Weight loss: Yes. Weight gain is totally due to the number of calories you eat. Calorie intake can be reduced either by cutting down the total number of calories consumed or by exercising to work off the calories. If you cut your total calories in half you will lose a lot of weight (but one large meal a day diets are difficult to stay with); if you exercise, you will lose even more. ...Read more

1st pregnancy last yr, blood clot pass every 10 or 15days, finally 13th week miscarried. Lung TB treated 10 yrs ago. Need to check anti phospholipid?

Possibly: Most first trimester miscarriages are due to fetal malformations or chromosome abnormalities. Classic APAS related are often second trimester or associated with other problems like infertility. But if no explanation otherwise for fetal loss, thrombophilia tests like for antiphospholipid antibody are reasonable. ...Read more

I did not wait 10 minutes after inserting the spermacide, but I started birth control 10 days ago. Do i need plan b?

Depends : Whether or not u need Plan B depends in part on where u were in ur menstrual cycle when u started your pills.If this was a start at any time other than the week after ur period started, Plan B would be a good idea but if u started it within that first week, u should be fine.Understand that if u take Plan B u will have irregular/abnormal bleeding even on the pill and should just keep taking them ...Read more
