No: Weight gain is more calories in than out, rather than the temperature. Maintaining a healthy weight is difficult enough without these "pop" superstitions. The best thing to do is get aerobically fit and avoid greasy / salty / sugary foods that folks tend to overeat -- soon these will become unpleasant for you. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
False: I have never heard of antibiotics causing weight gain.
Many causes, low met.: There are many causes of thyroid imbalances but our growing exposure to toxins including Fluoride (yes, fluoridated water causes it), bromine ; mercury is likely the most common cause. See http://bit. Ly/1doksyi ; http://bit. Ly/1ddkbiq for details. Thyroid hormone controls our metabolic rate like the rate an engine idles. The resultant slow metabolism in hypothyroidism causes weight gain.
Learning experience: Sleep is not an entity that is standard for any two people. Everyone tolerates sleep, hours asleep and sleep deprivation differently. The quality of sleep is more important than the quantity. If in doubt, get to a sleep professional.
Is it true that quitting smoking causes weight gain? If so would it be hard to get off? And how much weight would one expect?
Not Necessarily: You may gain weight -- usu <5 pounds -- bc food actually tastes good. Smoking causes you to lose taste sensation. Also, it creates a "hand to mouth" habit which leads some people to replace a cigarette with food. If you are aware of these things, it can keep you from over eating. Also, your lungs will be happier & you can exercise more! the benefits of quitting are far better than a few pounds.See 3 more doctor answers
Quite a lot!: Hypertension, Heart disease such as valve problems, Pregnancy, Hormone changes, Obesity, Excessive salt intake, Alcohol ingestion, Inflammatory diseases, many medications, and sedentary living / excessive sitting days. I encourage all my patients to live a healthy active life with as little medication as needed. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Maybe not related?: First distinguish fluid weight (like edema, ascites, "third spacing") from tissue weight (e.g. Bodybuilding, reparative, tumors, adipose). There are lots of metabolic reasons to rule out (organ disease like heart, liver, kidneys), insufficiency (thyroid, adrenal, kidney), more. Often high calorie (but low volume) foods & drink may add up quickly (3000-3500 extra calories per pound gained).
I am going on Zoloft (sertraline) 25MG, I've heard it causes weight gain. How can I avoid this? I am wanting to lose weight
I am 34 yrs old woman and on lamotrigine 25mg twice a day. What are the side effects if I conceive. Does it also causes weight gain?
Relatively minor: You are on a low dose of Lamotrigine and it is likely that you will not experience any new side effects if you conceive. Based on pregnancy registry data, likely safe for babies but not fully clear if any teratogenic risk. It is a weight neutral drug, and will not cause weight gain.
If insulin is fat storing hormone then why insulin resistance causes weight gain? If there is resistance then it should not be storing fat? Right?
Interesting question: Insulin resistance is associated with obesity. The exact mechanism by which this occurs is unknown, just like it is unknown why Insulin resistance causes high male hormone levels and irregular periods. One possibility is that there are different levels of Insulin resistance in different tissues, so that high Insulin affects those organs more.
What causes weight gain using Zoloft? If you eat the same & exercise, why do people gain on it? What mechanism is involved? Does metabolism change?
Appetite increase: A number of psychiatric drugs, including most SSRIs (with the exception usually of fluoxetine or Prozac) cause an increase in appetite. I am not aware of evidence that they lower metabolic rate. Increasing physical activity and being more careful with eating, particularly craving-driven eating, generally helps. Drinking more water gives you a full sensation in your stomach; also carrots & celery
Can probiotic supplements (20 billion/day) intake for 3-4 months cause any metabolic changes which either causes weight gain or loss?
? nonmetabolic: Probiotics probably don't affect your body's metabolism but if they improve significant chronic diarrhea, you could gain some weight on them and improve your overall health. However, research on probiotics is still going on to learn more of their effects.
