Lose it Health Wise: I just participated in the wellness challenge in the hamptons, a free program that promotes healthy and wise choices, based on the books, eat to lilve (dr.

Im gaining weight from advair is this normal should I igo off it I have to buy all new jeans now because i can't lose the weight?

Doctor can evaluate: A patient can be gaining weight while on advair, but it is probably not due to the advair. She might gain weight if on oral Prednisone or other steroids that are well-absorbed into the rest of the body. Advair and the newer inhaled steroids are not supposed to be absorbed into the rest of the body enough to cause effects like weight gain. So, one should look for other causes of weight gain. ...Read more

I got stretch marks on my side from gaining weight, but now I am on a role of losing weight. So how do I make them go away?

Nothing: Stretch marks are tears in the skin cause by weight gain. They can be covered up, but not improved by creams and lotions. The only possibly effective therapy is cosmetic plastic surgery, but that's a big step for a non-health and non-life threatening problem. ...Read more

See your doctor: I think your son should be seen by his doctor. If an infant is not gaining weight, this can be a big problem. Your son's doctor can check his growth curve and evaluate his daily food intake to see if your son needs further evaluation. ...Read more

It could be either: causing appetite changes; you may wish to seek council with a nutritionist and ask your primary care provider for information regarding how to manage your weight, as well as some laboratory studies to rule out any medical causes for your weight gain, just to be sure. Sometimes, meds can cause appetite issues. Good luck, and don't give up! ...Read more

Weight loss : If you are constantly losing weight that is not good. 1st you need to eat healthy balanced diet with small frequent meals and snacks every 3-4 hours, see your doctor for a complete physical exam, request a referral to endocrinologist & a dietitian & hopefully they figure out why you're loosening weight. Best wishes. ...Read more

Several things: First you want to make sure you've had a reasonable medical evaluation to rule out concerning reasons for weight loss/inability to gain weight. If that's not remarkable, it means that you will have to take a two pronged effort at weight gain. It should focus on eating high quality calorically dense food(including health fats, not junk food) and remaining active but not excessively. ...Read more
