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?

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

Menopause will DEFINITELY keep you from having kids! ...Read more
