I am XXXXX
I was 62.5 KG before
I am around 59.5 now
I am trying to find reason for some time.. not found yet
need help on this. I want to increase my weight at least by 5 more KGs
What you describe is insignificant weight loss. It is most likely the effect of your diet and life style.
But my food intake is not changed.. But I am controlling my cholestral for last 6 months
As such, I don't suspect any serious medical problem with this much weight reduction unless you complain about other medical symptoms to me.
I have stopped outside oily foods and outside sweets..
I am using ricebran oil..
Stopped taking whole milk, reduced the curd, no ghee
what other measures have you adopted to.
reduced oily foods
now my total cholestral has come under 200
Weight and cholesterol have almost direct correction.
If your cholesterol has come down with dietary changes
it explains reduction in weight.
taking tablets for last few months
If you are looking to add some weight, try adding some calories at the same time start exercise.
but triglycerides is also higher than normal
Your blood pressure seems to be under control now.
How high is it?
*how high the triglycerides are?
give me 2 min
let me check
triglycerides is 211
total cholestral is 188
vdl is 103
The triglycerides number is marginally high but not very concerning.
May I know your current height and weight?
My height is 5.10
Do you drink alcohol?
yes. Once in a month.. 2 units of wiskhy.
My father also thin like me.. many cousins also thin like me.. looks like hereditary
The triglyceride value is not very high and since you are still young,
I would not start medications.
But you should restrict all fatty and oily food especially those obtained from dairy products.
Add some high protein diet instead along with fruits and vegetables.
and start exercises.
I seem to be healthy. I don't feel tiered..
Since alcohol also has abilities to increased TG, LDL and VLDL levels, keep a check on the consumption.
Do you have any more questions?
I did complete health checkup as per physician advice. everything is normal. Doctor suggested endoscopy if weight reduces further.
what is your comment on this
I feel you should be able to put on weight while keeping those parameters down.
Talk to a nutritionist for a diet plain and exercise.
I will do
You don't seem to have any other symptoms of malabsorption. So endoscopy is not an immediate requirement.
also Can I stop my BP medicine as it seems to be normal
But as the doctor told things can be reassessed.
I don't recommend stopping blood pressure medicines abruptly without your treating doctor's advice.
You can discuss about withdrawing medicines during your next follow up.
Did you follow what I said?
My sister had cancer. is this hereditary ?
Yes I udnerstand what you said
should I do checkup for that as well
There are hereditary and genetic factors involved with some cancers.
If there is a strong history of cancers (many more family member suffer from it) you can consider it.
I am done with my questions.
Thanks a lot
