What's a woman's odds of having plaque in her arteries by age 56? Angiogram showed clean, but she's been obese for many years. Could it be false neg?

I trust it: Obesity itself is actually not a risk, though it is a marker for hypertension, diabetes, and lack of exercise which are. The sumo athletes of Japan are obese but have no coronary risk. And I have autopsied plenty of obese folks with great vessels. A lot is genetic. ...Read more

I took 4-5 60 mg vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) yesterday and then another 60 mg this morning. Do I have any hope of getting sleep and not overdosing? I am an obese woman

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) Overdose: The maximum dose is supposed to be 70 mg and you took perhaps 360 mg over the last 24 hours? I'm afraid you may already be experiencing symptoms of an overdose which can include heart arrhythmias, blood pressure abnormalities, seizures, rapid breathing, abdominal cramping and diarrhea, restlessness, and even confusion and coma. Is there someone who can take you to the ER now? If not, call 911. ...Read more

Does eating rice daily makes a person fat? The person is 50-year-old woman, is obese and has got thyroid reported in check-up. Food tips?

Not really: Eating rice daily doesnt make you fat necessarily. Rice does have a lot of calories and carbohydrates so eating a lot of it could lead to weight gain. Also for patients with diabetes it makes it difficult to control the blood sugars when people eat lots of rice. Bottom line is that everything should be done in moderation. ...Read more

Reddotso just noticed my veins in my arms all the way down to my fingers are very blue never that dark.I am a 50 yr old woman post meno. Obese ? Cause

See a doctor: Hi. That is odd. Both arms, right? Is there any swelling in your arms and face? Are you a smoker? Without a history and physical exam, I can't say, but it would seem prudent to see your doctor. There could be some obstruction of the superior vena cava, a big vein that drains both arms and the head. Good luck! ...Read more

I am a obese 55 old woman handicapped with spinal stenosis. Latly I am having sharp and very painful pain in my thighs and it hurts when I am on my feet and especially when I wear shoes with heels what would you suggest to aleviate the pain?

Lose weight & heels: Both actions should help symptoms depending on what reason you have for being handicapped. Heels force your back into extension which further narrows your spinal canal aggravating the stenosis present . Treatment ranges from medication, use of a cane, physical therapy and epidural steroid injections. If you need surgery, obesity increases the risks/ complications of surgery. ...Read more
