How Much Effect Does Being Overweight Have On Getting Bad Knees
Having trouble losing weight. It doesn't matter how little i eat or how much i exercise. My thyroid levels are fine. Could it be my meds?
Maybe (not) . . .: It depends upon what meds you're referring to. Or as my english teach would make me say, to which meds you are referring. Regardless, Prednisone & similar steroids as well as 2nd generation antipsychotics like Olanzapine are notorious for weight gain. You didn't mention your meds so it's impossible for us to make a truly educated guess. Despite your lack of weight loss, don't stop exercising! ...Read more

Is it possible that i'm getting fat my weight stays the same. people are.telling me i gained weight though i weigh the same?
A few thoughts...: There could be multiple explanations for appearing heavier but not gaining weight. Gaining facial fat (which can occur if you take steroid therapy or your body makes too much steroid) gives your face a rounder appearance, causing you to look heavier. Error with the scale--use same scale for weight if possible. Viewer error--perhaps they perceive you as being heavier due to clothing layers, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
