I am a 17 year old teenager with a bmi of 24.0. However, I am constantly feeling hungry. Is this normal?
I am 17 years old. Turning 18 soon. I keep feeling my heartbeat in my stomach. I'm not thin or overweight. My BMI is totally fine.?
Probably normal.: It is not unusual for young people to be able to feel a pulse in their abdomen. It usually occurs in people who are thin, although people who are normal weight can occasionally feel it also. It would be a good idea to see your doctor and have your blood pressure checked, but it will probably turn out to be innocuous. Good luck. ...Read more

Depends on height: Hi. BMI is a measure of body habitus that is calculated using your height and weight. It does not take age (in adults) into account. So 20 years old doesn't matter. Height, however, is indispensable in calculating BMI. Therefore, in the absence of critically important information, we have no way to tell you what an average BMI for (20 yo) women is. Good luck! ...Read more

Is there a healthy amount of calories a 5ft 3" 18 y/o year old with a BMI of 26 should burn everyday?
Nature of food: If you stick to god made food, you do not have to worry about energy. Eat to the point where you are satisfied and no longer hungry. An excess of calories is bad. Avoid all the "junk" that is so common, especially all the sweet stuff. ...Read more
My EKG showed low voltage in the limb leads. My doctor wasn't concerned. I'm 38 year old female BMI 19.5 I had a previousnormal EKG should I be worrie?
NO: Low voltage on an EKG usually is caused by placement of the leads. This usually does happen from the limb leads because they are placed farther than the precordial leads. Also, they can be placed at different locations. For example more toward your ankle on one EKG versus closer or at your knee on another. ...Read more

Abnormal OGTT: Hi. Those results are abnormal, although there are no standard diagnostic criteria for 70 and 90 minutes. I trust they did a 120 minute for which there ARE diagnostic criteria. You're young, thin, & have no family history of type 2. You're probably in the process of developing type 1. What symptoms led your doc to do the OGTT? Have you lost weight? Are you peeing all night long? Follow up with doc ...Read more

I am an 18-year-old female but my blood pressure is always 92/57-60. My BMI is 24.2. It is naturally occurring (no meds). Is it dangerous?
Low BP?: 18 F BMI 24.2 worries about BP 92/57. No worries. In general the lower your BP and BMI the longer you will live and the less time you will spend during your later years living with the consequences of higher BP: stroke, heart attach, heart failure, kidney failure and aortic aneurysm. Keep up the good work The only low BP to worry about is if you faint when it gets low for you. ...Read more

With a consistent resting heart rate of 85 what would you expect a brisk walk to the shops heart rate to be? 23 year old female w/ slightly high BMI.
100-120: Your resting heart rate over 80 indicates a lack of physical fitness, assuming your thyroid and medical condition to be otherwise normal. I would guess that a brisk walk would increase your heart rate modestly since you are not obese. At your age, you ought to be doing more vigorous exercise to get your heart rate above 140 for about 20 minutes a day for optimal health and fitness. ...Read more

Given you age and bmi, I suggest that you can better manage your weight through careful diet and activity. Currently, there are only limited options for an oral weight loss medication and all have their limitations and side-effects. Phentermine is an amphetamine has been approved by the fda and has been used for many years as a weight loss formula. It is used for a limited period of time to speed weight loss in overweight people who are exercising and eating a low-calorie diet and belongs to a class of medications called anorectics. A combination of Phentermine and topiramate (brand name topamaxÂ®) or also known as qnexa is under consideration by the fda for approval in 2012. Bontril is another amphetamine-related weight-loss drug, but like any amphetamine, are potentially addictive.
Empatic is a combination drug consisting of two already fda approved medications, zonisamide and bupropion, for seizures and antidepressant, respectively - the combination is being tested for weight loss.
Some appetite suppressant drugs such as Fenfluramine (also known as fen phen), chlorphentermine, and aminorex induced a heart valve abnormalities as well as pulmonary hypertension. These drugs were eventually withdrawn from the market.
Lorcaserin, a selective 5-ht (2c) receptor agonist, produced modest weight loss but was not initially approved by the fda - resubmission is being consider in 2012. The monoaminergic re-uptake inhibitor tesofensine has also been shown to produce impressive weight loss in smaller-scale clinical studies and future tests are planned.
The ads you see on the internet are for non-proven weight loss treatments. ...Read more

Chest pain: It sounds like it may be musculoskeletal but always good to ensure. Ice packs and moist heat will definitely help me move in the right direction with gentle stretching and massaging.

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?
Can't tell, but...: A starting point is 130 lbs. A lot depends on a person's body build. Some are naturally very thin, others thick or big-boned, but most people are somewhere in between. "Australian" is a location, so that doesn't help either, as many different types of bodies are in Australia. BMI is helpful if a person is of average musculature. If very muscular, a perfectly fine person will have a high BMI. ...Read more
