No: It's not easy to lose weight. It's a full time job. It requires motivation, dedication, & self discipline. It can be done but it doesn't happen quickly or by accident.

I'm a 59 year old male, overweight, glucose 95, should I take metphormin, if so, at what dose? Are there any side effects? Thanks
Perhaps: your fasting blood sugar is normal; it would be important to know your FH, how overweight you are. Metformin is used in Type 2 diabetes, but some clinicians use it for obese pts trying to lose weight; it decreases sugar absorption, improves insulin sensitivity, and other effects. As with any medication, there are potential side effects (Google it). If used, would start at 500mg twice daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Finally, avoid using words like "fat" or "overweight." Hope this helps! ...Read more

Im overweight, how does that effect the results of a pregnancy test, LMP was in july negative home test, been regular for years... Thank you.. ?
No effect: Your weight should not effect the accuracy of a urine home pregnancy test which measures HCG which is produced by cells within the placental tissues of the conception. A blood test for serum beta HCG can give a more exact measurement of the pregnancy hormone level and can be followed over time to ensure an early pregnancy appears to be progressing properly until an ultrasound can be perfomed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Live your life: You are 17. Sometimes nature plays a role in this. I cannot imagine anyone at age 17 worrying about fertility. Missed periods are common.

Maybe nature is poking you to ask why not school, travel, adventure before you become a mother? ...Read more
I have had Nexplanon since 10/2014. Last period was 5/20. 2 neg preg tests, but experiencing symptoms. Overweight/obese. Could I be pregnant?

A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
