Is a 2 mm loaded heel fat pad considered severely thinned? I am only 35 years old and am concerned as I don't have any predisposing factors.

Simple but not easy: Calories taken in, minus calories used up, equals fat gain or fat loss or a steady state. If taking in more calories than one is burning each day, he gains fat. If calories in equals calories out, his weight doesn't change. If he eats and drinks fewer calories than burned each day, he loses fat... so this is the answer! Burn calories, all day long. Burn lots of calories, and no "diet" is needed. ...Read more

7 year olds penis still retracts into fat pad. He is circ'd. Normal penis when pushing on fat pad. Pedi say all is normal. Will he grow out of this?
Probably: 7 year old boys in this situation (hidden penis) often grow out of it because as he grows and "loses fat" the normal penis will be more visible. Its the fat around the penis that needs to be addressed. If he has a healthy balanced diet, exercise options, and can rest well, the fat pad will lessen as he grows and his self confidence will increase. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The size of my erect penis pressing fat pad :6.9" and when no pressing:4.7". I need to lose 88 lbs. After lose weigth will i see 6.9" usable length?
Maybe, maybe not...: Penis size is not the only or main reason to lose 88 pounds. Lots of factors related to penile size-genetics, nerve function, vascular health, hormones, other. The sooner you start losing weight, the sooner you will look and feel better (which also is a factor), and decrease the aggravating effects of obesity on BP and blood sugar/diabetes ( which impact erectile function). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
