Do I have to be in good physical condition to qualify for tumescent liposuction? Do I have to be fit and in good cardiovascular shape to qualify for tumescent liposuction, or are sedentary people able to have it done as well? .

Do I have to be in good physical condition to qualify for tumescent liposuction? Do I have to be fit and in good cardiovascular shape to qualify for tumescent liposuction, or are sedentary people able to have it done as well? .

Yes: Sedentary patients in good health can get it done but what counts is if you are overall healthy and not overweight. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is done to contour the body and get rid of rebellious fat bulges that are beyond the reach of dieting and exercising. Read more

Have graves' disease as a result put on weight, I went to Africa to see whether I can get a liposuction, would it be safe to do it with the illness?

Have graves' disease as a result put on weight, I went to Africa to see whether I can get a liposuction, would it be safe to do it with the illness?

Be careful: I would advise against both your statements. You should see a local plastic surgeon for better advice and should stay local. Do not bargain with your health. Your car probably cost three or four times the lipo and will only be good for 5 - 10 years. Your lipo will be good for life. Now on the weigh gain and lipo, this is not for weight loss. Lipo is for contouring. Treat the graves, first. Read more

I have a hypothyroid condition and I am constantly constipated, how do I fix this problem?

I have a hypothyroid condition and I am constantly constipated, how do I fix this problem?

Depends: Since you say you are hypothyroid, I assume you are taking daily thyroid & get tested occasionally to see if your meds are doing their job. If not, get tested & if still showing hypothyroid your meds should be adjusted. Constipation is a sign of hypothyroidism. That said, if your numbers are normal you are like anyone else with the problem. Daily scheduled emptying & increased fiber help most. Read more

How can one suggest the dose of thyronorm for hypothyroid disease?

How can one suggest the dose of thyronorm for hypothyroid disease?

Many factors: There are formulas that some people use to calculate a dose. I do not find them useful, however. Older people and small people need less, you need to go slow with buildup in people with heart disease, other factors. In a 30 yo healthy woman of normal size, I would probably start with 75 - 100 mcg/day, which is prob slightly low, then get a TSH in 6 weeks and make a dose adjustment. Read more

I want tips to lose weight with diet and workout - with hypothyroid condition?

I want tips to lose weight with diet and workout - with hypothyroid condition?

The usual way: Burn more calories than you take in. Make sure your thyroid levels are right, usually TSH between lower limit of normal and 3 is best. Exercise program that is 50/50 weights & cardio/aerobic activity is better than either activity alone. Eat high-fiber foods, limit snacks, drink plenty of water, and get 8 hr sleep will help you stick w/ your program. Good luck! Read more

Can you tell me if I could have kids if I have hypothyroidism & hashimotto disease?

Can you tell me if I could have kids if I have hypothyroidism & hashimotto disease?

Yes: Hi. I will assume that your hypothyroidism is treated and that on treatment, you have normal thyroid function. That condition is not an impediment to conceiving and successfully carrying a pregnancy to term. Your profile says your 48 years old,,, THAT is the elephant in the room! Menopause will DEFINITELY keep you from having kids! Read more

Generally when treating hypothyroidism, do you lose the weight you put on from having the condition?

Generally when treating hypothyroidism, do you lose the weight you put on from having the condition?

Yes but not much: A lot of women blame thyroid for weight but it is not responsible for large weight gain or loss. I have seen wide variety of response in that zero weight loss to 50 pounds plus wt loss from the medication. Usually 0 to 2 pounds is all you get. Diet is the most important factor. Read more

I was currently on weight watchers but didn't lose much weight. Recently found out that I have hypothyroid disease?

Treat hypothyroidism: If you were properly diagnosed with hypothyroidism, this will make it more difficult to lose weight unless your thyroid levels are made normal. You would need to be on thyroid hormone to correct low thyroid. However, you will still likely need to be careful with your diet and do aerobic exercise to lose weight and keep it off. Read more

Have hypothyroidism. Recived preskription Circadin. Start today. The leaflet say not recommended & not to be eaten with autommun disease. What 2 do?

It's OK: Hi. As an endocrinologist and autoimmune disease doc, I can't for the life of me think why the leaflet says not to take if you have autoimmune disease. Melatonin is fine taken with MANY autoimmune diseases, and hasn't been studied for safety (or unsafety) with ANY. Go for it. Sleep tight and sweet dreams! Read more

I have hypothyroid disorder and am trying to be a vegetarian, but is that a good idea?

Why?: Hypothyroidism is always treatable. I happen to be so. It is a problem that 8percent of the population deals with. Oncedxed, non-problem. While I respect food choices, a vegetarian lifestyle is one I cannot endorse. It is a social & psychological decision. Humans have never been vegetarians! Read more
