PCOS/prediabetes, no other issues. Obese/gaining weight in spite of low-carb diet/exercise. Bloating/water retention. Not too much salt/fat. What can I do?

4 "Fs"/exercise: Fish, foul, fruit, fiber and 2 types of exercise: burst interval high and low impact aerobics mixed with use of hand or free weights- 30 minutes 4-5 times a week>PLUS "photo imaging": get a photo of yourself looking your best/thinnest/sexiest. Tape it to your dressing room mirror. Stare at it daily. Amazing how your brain will heal you!

Does Biaxin (clarithromycin) cause water retention or weight gain?

Does Biaxin (clarithromycin) cause water retention or weight gain?

No: Really unlikely. Antibiotics work because they hit the germ and not us. Biaxin (clarithromycin) doesn't interact with the kidneys or with fluid. Rare (really really rare) reactions like allergies might possibly cause unexpected effects like liver failure. but Biaxin (clarithromycin) doesn't commonly do this AND, there'd be a lot of other symptoms (brown urine, abdominal swelling and pain, being really sick, etc.).

How does clomipramine cause weight gain? Ex: by increasing your appetite or water retention?

How does clomipramine cause weight gain? Ex: by increasing your appetite or water retention?

Appetite stimulation: The weight gain from clomipramine (anafranil) is due to appetite stimulation. Some people will have some water weight (edema), but that is not the primary reason for the weight gain.

Do any of the meds I take plus cyamemazine (tercian) cause weight gain? :/ if so is it via increased appetite or water retention? I'm not over eating

Phenothiazine: This medication is a phenothiazine class antihistaminic antipsychotic medication. Medications of this type have historically been known to cause weight gain by appetite stimulation. Finding data on side effects of this medication proved quite difficult online. There was some information about metabolic syndrome cases but I did not see anything that had to do with edema. Without a formal pdr like print out however I cannot say for sure that at least some of the weight gain does not come from edema.

Can artificial sweeteners inhibit weight loss or cause water retention? Are there any big red flags that go along with artificial sweeteners?

Can artificial sweeteners inhibit weight loss or cause water retention? Are there any big red flags that go along with artificial sweeteners?

Some evidence: There has been studies to show that consumption of a single artificially sweetened beverage a day can increase your risk of diabetes by 40% the same subject tended to be overweight. Some cause cancer in lab rates, while others are associated with increase blood pressure. I recommend staying away.

What to do because my periods are very irregular. Does anybody know of a birth control that does not cause water retention and weight gain?

What to do because my periods are very irregular. Does anybody know of a birth control that does not cause water retention and weight gain?

Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol): Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) or Yasmin should not result in fluid retention since the Progesterone in it has diuretic properties. However, these may have slightly higher risk for DVT (blood clots) than other BCP. Can also try any pill with 20 ugm of estrogen as opposed to one with 30-35 ugm. For more info www.

Are electrolytes similar to salts and cause water retention?

Are electrolytes similar to salts and cause water retention?

Yes: Electrolytes are the collective name for sodium, potassium, chloride, etc. -- the chemicals that make up the liquid part of blood. Too much of one particular electrolyte -- sodium -- one component of nacl, or salt -- can cause swelling. Most energy drinks have "some" electrolytes in them, and drinking too much of them can contribute to swelling.

How much sodium intake to cause water retention?

It depends on.......: Many factors include whether you take meds like water pills and calcium blockers, and actos, (pioglitazone) whether you have kidney disease, and whether you have heart failure. Some people tend to have fluid retention without these factors coming into play (benign essential edema). The reasonable sodium restriction to consider is under 2000mg/day by eating fresh fruits/veg and avoiding cured meat & salted food.
