I believe that I have a hiatal hernia due to the symptoms i have, what can I do to get rid of it? Also, can I do regular exercise i.E. Gym work.

I believe that I have a hiatal hernia due to the symptoms i have, what can I do to get rid of it? Also, can I do regular exercise i.E. Gym work.

Not likely: Your gastric symptoms should be treated by medications to reduce acid in the stomach. Only severe hiatal hernia symptoms need surgical repair. Most of them can be managed by lifestyle changes (weight loss, cessation of tobacco and alcohol, regular exercise etc). Gym should be fine. Hopefully you have had an upper endoscopy and xray studies to make an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

Still eating healthy intake and excercising trying to lose weight to get rid of apnea if its even the cause. Should i avoid pushups  for weight loss?

Keep going: You are on the right path. Keep working on weight loss. I'd encourage any and all exercise, including push ups. Strength training results in increased muscle mass, which does help in burning fat. Weight loss does help improve obstructive sleep apnea and many other things like hypertension and diabetes. Way to go and keep it up! ...Read more

If I lose weight, how do I get rid of loose skin around my stomache and chest?

If I lose weight, how do I get rid of loose skin around my stomache and chest?

Ahh! The secret: That is the secret and one of the critical components of fat removal or reduction. It is very difficult to get skin to contract. Although lasers, ultrasound, radio frequency, infrared, freezing, lotions and potions can reduce or remove fat, they only provide limited ski contraction and oftentimes not enough. Surgically excising the skin is our best option for major skin redundancy or laxity. ...Read more

I have recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea I am 100 lbs overweight if I lose weight will I be able to get rid of it?

You can: If you loose weight you more than likely will be able to resolve your obstructive sleep apnea. In rare cases the structure of your adenoid, tonsils and post pharynx might be too big and can also be the cause of your OSA. I do recommend weight loss as a first step and repeating your sleep study. If it is central sleep apnea that is a different etiology. ...Read more
