My mom is overweight. She has acidity problem and her body gets tired. Suggest ways to reduce weight and cope acidity and tiredness issue.

Get involved: Overweight causes both reflux & fatigue. Reflux treatable with meds. Make sure fatigue is not from low thyroid or sleep apnea (is she nodding off?). If she already had obesity surgery, we wont solve this over the internet. She has to work with her team & to want to get better using diet and daily exercise. Glad you are involved. Why dont you go with her to the doctor visits to see how you can help. ...Read more

Expend energy.: When you go to the store - park your car farther from the store - so you get more walking in. When you are bringing items from one floor to the next in your home, carry less - so that you have more trips (stair climbing). In commercial buildings opt to take the stairs instead of the elevator. Go on hikes or biking with the kids or take the dogs for a walk. Good luck. ...Read more

My mom has leg trouble she can't hold food down she is tired and week she is in her 60s or 70s she wore heals since age 13 she also has week bowls?

Take her to see doc: Not sure i understand everything you've posted which is what makes it difficult to give thoughtful answers w/o exchange of information. Not sure why leg trouble (what kind?) has to do w/vomiting from "weak bowels" which could lead to being tired & weak. Not sure why she was wearing heels at 13yo although that might lead to "leg troubles". Bottom line: she needs to go see her doctor. ...Read more
