Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
At the age of 24 all the long bones of your body have fused with the growing ends and have reached their permanent fixed size. there is no chance of any increment in your height with any kind of drugs or yoga or exercises. All these things are effective before 12 years of age in females.

Doctor after 4months is my wedding, I want to reduce my weight atleast by 20kgs within 4 months.

Since last 2months I am on diet, would like to share my Food Diary with you.

After waking up I do little exercise I drink Warm water adding 2 drops of lime / honey 1tsp.
Breakfast: Omlette(egg white),toast,fruit. ( if bored i take Idli or wada)
Lunch: Brown bread with one vegetable, one piece of boiled Chicken or Fish,sometimeswith oil free dal.
Snack time: 2 biscuits or lite Puff with tea
Dinner: Apple

In between every 2hours I eat fruit or vegetable or drink buttermilk.

I end up my day with warm milk & boiled egg white.

Now I am planning to buy Treadmill as I feel that i have reduced a little.
Doctor Stretch marks are appearing on my inner thighs,stomach & arms. I am applying Dove Intensive cream on them. Can u please suggest me any other cream If my application is wrong.

Please suggest me if my diet is good for weight loss.

I am having acute right upper quadrant pain. It woke me up about an hour and a half ago. I am trying to decide if I need to go to the ER or not. I had gastric banding in July of this year but have never had any problems. Feel just slightly queasy.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
