My body changed after having children. Is it harder to loose weight. Does anyone know?

Yes: It can definitley be harder to lose weight after having children. Along with that, it is harder to lose weight as we get older. Metabolism slows down. Eating healthy, lots of fruit and vegetables, limited sugars, sodas, snacks, and fried foods, and exercising is of the utmost importance! Read more

I haven't been ovulating for 3months all of a sudden I feel ovulation symptoms, what could have possibly changed in my body?

Ovulation: It is not uncommon for a patient who does not ovulate regularly and may frequently skip several periods to spontaneously ovulate on her own without medication. Some patients with ovulation dysfunction have periods every 5 to 6 weeks, and some have periods only once or twice a year or even less frequently. The frequency of ovulation in a particular patient can also vary with weight gain or loss. Read more

Does the body physiologically change as the seasons change to accommodate a change in temperature? (ie: more weight in the fall and winter)

Does the body physiologically change as the seasons change to accommodate a change in temperature? (ie: more weight in the fall and winter)

Not Really: Humans live in artificial environments most of the time; we heat our homes in the winter and cool them in the summer. Our "seasons" are not what our ancestors lived through. That said, if we are less active in the winter and more active in the summer, then yes, our bodies will change, but it's due to that phenomenon, not the seasons themselves. Read more

I've been on fluoxitine for 10 years. 40 mg. 2 weeks ago I picked up my refill and have felt anxious ever since. Any chance they gave me the wrong dose? Or do I just need to up my dosage because my body has changed?

I've been on fluoxitine for 10 years. 40 mg. 2 weeks ago I picked up my refill and have felt anxious ever since. Any chance they gave me the wrong dose? Or do I just need to up my dosage because my body has changed?

Fluoxetine dosage: I would double-check with the pharmacy and with your doctor to see whether the dosage had been changed. Dosage increases with fluoxetine can cause anxiety sometimes, on a short-term basis as your body gets used to the new dosage. Read more

There are far too: Many questions here for us to address in 400 characters or less. Recommend that calories burned exceed calories in. Drinking at least 8 8 ounce glasses per day is important for both hydration and weight control. Try to get in whole foods (fiber) as well as 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Physical activity is essential. At least 8 hours of sleep per night helps. Read more

How quick do b-vitamins change in the body?

How quick do b-vitamins change in the body?

B Vitamins: All B vitamins are water soluble and are therefore not stored up in the body and rapidly eliminated, most often by the kidney. Some B vitamins go through a metabolic process in the liver before being excreted by the kidney. It is very difficult to overdose on B vitamins because the body takes what it needs and excretes the rest rather quickly. Read more

So can what shows on an autoimmune panel, then change in 2 yrs time? What r some that mimic fibro? I was told some do by my dr

Yes & None: Yes, autoimmunity tests can change over time. There are no autoimmune tests, however, which have been shown to have anything to do specifically with fibromyalgia. There may be a number of possible causes for fibro including food allergies and nerve irritation due to loose ligaments. Systemic lupus, hashimoto's thyroiditis, & a number or other disorders (not all autoimmune) can mimic fibro. Read more
