Hi welcome to healtcare magic



for the age of 22yrs and height 5' 7 feet, 50 kg is not over weight.... you can maintain the same range of weight.. avoid junk food( chats) to avoid the weight gain...

Hi, doctor Grief. I have been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and have been given 10 MG of cortex/day. I am feeling a lot better and I m able to function now. However, I put on a lot of weight and would like to stop taking it. My doctor tells me that I should be taking it for at least 3 months and then she will reduce it to 5mg. I have been taking it for a month and a half now. My question is: Will my adrenal be able to recover without the help of the hydrocortisone?

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
