What causes obesity? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help?
i am putting a lot of weight
even having no changes in my schedule
How much is your weight and height
i weigh approx 78 and height is 5feet 4 inches
Give me a moment to calculate BMI
Your BMI is 29.5
It comes in the category of obese
Do you have any other symptoms apart from weight gain?
n this increasing weight has started to bother me a lot nowadays,like i have swollen feet,reduced vision(my spectacles no has dropped), i forget things a lot
What else do you have?
i have low energy and feel tired from afternoon only
i even feel like sleeping a lot
When was the last you time you took blood tests?
and have lost apetite and interest in normal like too
approx an year back
All these symptoms correlate with hypothyroidism
There can be other causes too
I want you to repeat the blood tests
Include thyroid profile in that
ohh how can that be checked
By checking the female hormones in blood
LH, FSH etc
iam anaemic too and have had blood transfusions done
What is the cause for your anemia?
these tests sound so terrifying
But they are needed
Anemia can also cause irregular periods
so we need to make sure what is going on
my last discharge report says i had pyrexia of unknown origin with megaloblastic anameia
It keeps coming and going every month
Do you have vaginal discharge?
at times not regular
What colour is it?
white or transperent
What is the smell of it?
It seems like fungal infection
Sorry I did not understand
that sample is tested for what
For infections and abnormal cells (cancerous)
n what if one is not sexually active
Then you can go for vulval smear and complete blood count
But it will not be very accurate
what do u suggest
So you need to arrange for all these tests
Also you may adapt some lifestyle changes
One thing that may help is drinking cleanest water (preferably from RO system)
Secondly take measure to treat megaloblastic anemia
i do that now too
Also do not eat high calorie food
High calorie food means milk products like cheese, butter, ghee, cream , icecream, sweets
u saying i should take all medicines again
You also need to exercise for atleast 20 min a day
If you are still anemic
You will need to repeat your blood tests for anemia
If you want
I can get a dietician consult arranged for you
i have filled dietician form too today itself
So the dietician will contact you soon
But I do not want to blame it unless I have ruled out other causes
ask me something so that i can confirm of depression
Do you feel sad?
Do you do everything slowly?
i feel lazy
Do you feel hopeless about your future
to major extent
There is no XXXXXXX or pleasure in life
Are you there?
