Nightmares,shake &anxiety when see an overweight male.Not considered about my weight.Nor have I had any attraction with an over..Should I be worried?

Mystery lover?: There's no need to suffer while you try to solve the mystery. Nightmares and anxiety can mess up your daily life and will not help figure out the cause. Consider talk therapy (if you need Rx - they'll refer) to explore possible meanings if you wish. It can have a connection to the past or not and what you want now is to feel less distress. Best! ...Read more

Was told to see dr. Due to beta proyien levels being too high. Is this dangerous, and what could be the cause of this? I've survived cancer 2 times, i'm a 48yr old female. Don't drink, or smoke, and am not over weight, or out of shape.

I : I assume you meant to type beta protein. Beta amyloid proteins in the blood are often associated with a predisposition to familial alzheimers. The proteins per se do not cause alzheimers. You should consult with a neurologist who will possible suggest other testing and do baseline tests of memory and cognitive function. It is good that you do not drink or smoke and generally keep yourself in shape. This finding is not related to your cancer history. In itself the elevated protein is not dangerous but bears watching. Good luck to you. ...Read more

I'm 21 years old and just bought a scale... I'm 5'4 and weight 138.4. Am I overweight?

You'reNotAFatAlbert: That's not much info,but can be used to calculate your Body Mass Index which gives a very general idea of your over- or under-weightedness.But please remember it depends on what that mass consists of. If all fat that's one thing,all muscles another.Most people are somewhere in-between so we use the BMI as an estimate.Yours is exactly 23.69.Time for you to read-up on what that means(hint: not over) ...Read more

I'm 17 years old, quite short don't know my height really, weight 7.1stone, am I overweight?

I'm 17 years old, quite short don't know my height really, weight 7.1stone, am I overweight?

Hard to say: Since appropriate weight is quantified based on weight/height, without a height, it is not easy to give you an answer.Most consider 5 feet (1.5m) short for a woman and 7.1 stone (99.4 lb) would give you a Body Mass Index of 19.5 which would be considered normal for that height. ...Read more

I'm bulimic, but I'm 5'3" and 80lbs, aren't bulimics supposed to be normal weight or overweight? I don't eat all day though so...

I'm bulimic, but I'm 5'3" and 80lbs, aren't bulimics supposed to be normal weight or overweight? I don't eat all day though so...

More than bulimia: It sounds to me like you fit the definition for anorexia with a severely low weight. Some anorexics binge due to extreme hunger from starving and then in an effort to get rid of the food, they engage in bulimic behaviors such as self-induced vomiting. Patients who are strictly bulimic usually do not starve as you are. Please seek help immediately. ...Read more

I'm 17 an want to lose weight because I'm overweight, I want to lose at least 50 pounds in like 2 months. How can I do this effectively an fast?

Don't Try!: It is physiologically to lose more than 1.5 to 2 Lbs/week! On a strenuous diet, you will lose pounds of water first. Tragically, on a severe diet, you will lose muscle and bone mass- but when you take in calories, your body stores it as FAT- what you don't want. Muscle BURNS sugar, fat STORES it. You'll significantly increase your risk of diabetes. Eat small, frequent meals. EXERCISE. ...Read more
