Hi, im a 19-year-old over weight female. I am wandering what is the healthiest, but fastest way to lose 25 by march?

Eat less more more: It really depends on your starting weight whether losing 25 lbs by march is feasible. More important — why do you want to lose weight and why by march? Focus more on your health and recognize that you have a long time ahead of you to live in this body. If you approach it in a hurry you are more likely to end up with a temporary loss at best.

As growth and extra activities decline, most will find 8 hour enough. Failure to keep up with the sleep requirement can show up in a variety of ways. Poor academic performance in school, sleep walking, etc. ...Read more

Is pri. Or sec. erythromelalgia more common in a 19-year-old male? I've read most secondary causes are in women over 60. I had a CBC and it was fine.

THERE ARE: Three categories: erythromelalgia (platelet-mediated and aspirin-sensitive), primary erythermalgia, and secondary erythermalgia
Hereditary erythromelalgia is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in a protein involved in a , voltage-gated sodium channel. More than 20 SCN9A mutations have been reported in patients with this form of primary erythromelalgia. Causes of secondary erythromelalgia include medications, myeloproliferative disorders, infections and unknown causes. The early-onset (primary) form is reported to have a male-to-female ratio of 1:2.5. Secondary erythromelalgia was reported to have a male-to-female ratio of 3:2 when due to myeloproliferative disorders but a 1997 case series from Norway showed a female predominance (male-to-female ratio of 1:2), when a variety of causes were included. ...Read more
