20 year old female BMI 21, did GTT and it reached 305 in minute 70 and 280 in minute 90, no family history of DM, should I be worried?

20 year old female BMI 21, did GTT and it reached 305 in minute 70 and 280 in minute 90, no family history of DM, should I be worried?

Abnormal OGTT: Hi. Those results are abnormal, although there are no standard diagnostic criteria for 70 and 90 minutes. I trust they did a 120 minute for which there ARE diagnostic criteria. You're young, thin, & have no family history of type 2. You're probably in the process of developing type 1. What symptoms led your doc to do the OGTT? Have you lost weight? Are you peeing all night long? Follow up with doc ...Read more

After my ovarian drilling I noticed that hairs on my body are thinner and don't grow as fast. Is it a sign that it's working for me? My BMI 21

After  my ovarian drilling I noticed that hairs on my body are thinner and don't grow as fast. Is it a sign that it's working for me? My BMI 21

Yes: Some women have a good response to ovarian drilling with decrease in levels of testosterone that will help with thinning of your body hair or slower growth. Ovarian drilling is also associated with ovulation and higher Estradiol levels which will help with it also. Good Luck! ...Read more

Age17 weight133 BMI 21.5 1 hour of cardio2-3 times a week, P90X ab workout 3-4 times a week, healthy eating, lots of water. How long until I have abs?

Age17 weight133 BMI 21.5 1 hour of cardio2-3 times a week, P90X ab workout 3-4 times a week, healthy eating, lots of water. How long until I have abs?

A dirty secret: You can't force your body to lose fat in certain areas, so doing sit ups won't cause the fat over your abs to get thinner. U won't have the "6-pack" until you remove all the fat tissue in the skin covering your abs. You'd have to decrease your entire body fat to absurd levels to get your skin thin enough. Truth is, most of the "6-packs" you see out there were liposuctioned. ...Read more

Try these...: As recently appeared in US News and World Report, some of the best fat-burning foods include oatmeal, apples, almonds, chicken breast, egg whites and asparagus, certified fitness nutrition specialist Obi Obadike writes. He noted that fish oil and garlic also can help burn fat, as can adding brown rice and tomatoes to the menu. Don't forget to watch portions, cut alcohol & keep exercising. ...Read more

Male, 32 age, BMI 21.9, waist-to-height ratio is 0.49 as pant size 33inches, height 68 inches, walk 2 miles daily, runner knee for 1 year, cure for it?

An overuse syndrome: There are a few causes of runner's knee. The most common involves the front of the knee and is caused by damage to the cartilage lining the patella (patellofemoral pain syndrome). Another occurs on the lateral side from irritation of the iliotibial band. Treatment for both involve rest, nsaids, activity modification, and physical therapy.If left untreated both can become chronic problems. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) + metformin?: With polycystic ovarian sydrome (pcos) and irregular periods you're not ovulating every month. Clomid (clomiphene) is the first-choice medicine to help you ovulate and get pregnant. Metformin plus Clomid (clomiphene) is a little better than Clomid (clomiphene) alone. Letrozole is good if you don't respond to, or get a thin lining with clomid (clomiphene). You should get checked for low egg supply, blocked tubes, uterine problems, or sperm issues. ...Read more

Optimise your lipids: AT your young age of 26, if CT angio score is 0, that bodes well for you, it means you have no significant visible calcified plaque in coronary arteries. Having said that, atheroslerosis leading to heart disease is a cumulative process, so very important that you modify your risk factors through lifestyle changes: raise HDL >45 atleast. Exercise regularly (even walk 30 min daily), eat salmon, av ...Read more
