Title: weight gain


1
Hidden Reasons Your Weight Gain
  • find out how

2
  • If you are suffering from weight gain problem
    even when you have tried out multiple steps then
    it may be because of medical problems. If the
    needle indicator starts creeping upward and
    refuses to head downward, the probable suspect
    for this cause of random weight gain may be too
    many doughnuts, not diseases or drugs. But people
    consume too much food and  too little exercise.
    This account for most excess weight gain. There
    are some surprisingly common medical conditions
    that can add anywhere from a little to a lot-a
    whole lot-of excess weight. 

3
Hormonal Havoc
  • Possible tip-offs of PCOS include thinning hair,
    excess facial hair, severe acne, irregular
    periods. Its not the extra testosterone that
    triggers the weight gain. While it looks like
    there is genetic component to PCOS, it runs in
    families and a genetic component to the
    associated weight gain. Theres little to explain
    why some of those diagnosed develop weight
    problems while others do not. 

4
Thyroid Thickness
  • Its rare to find someone whos significantly
    overweight because of an underactive thyroid. If
    weight creep is on a small scale-in the 5- to
    10-pound ballpark-it possible that hypothyroidism
    is behind it, though. If it have other telltale
    symptoms, such as brittle hair and nails, dry
    skin and a tendency to feel cold, definitely get
    checked out, or perform a thyroids self-exam.
    Most of thyroid-prompted weight gain is actually
    due to excess fluid, not fat and correcting the
    thyroid problem pretty effectively.

5
The Weight of Water
  • If someones retaining a lot of water-enough to
    add more than a couple of pounds-theyd better
    get to their physician very quickly to make sure
    they dont have heart or kidney failure, both of
    which can cause edema, or swelling that such
    problems are much more likely to afflict older
    women. If push a fingertip into your skin and it
    leaves a real indentation rather than springing
    back, thats a tip-off that its fluid, not fat.
    Other symptoms include shortness of breath
    (congestive heart disease), decreased urine
    output and loss of appetite (kidney failure), and
    fatigue and increased abdominal girth even
    without weight gain, for both.

A Knot in Your Stomach
  • Unlikely, but worth mentioning. If any women have
    rapid, unexplained weight gain, its possible,
    though rare, that they have a tumor. It had
    patients gain over 100 pounds because of a huge
    ovarian tumor in their belly. Again, one should
    not  ignore any disproportionate expansion. One
    should immediately consult with physicians 

7
An Rx That Rounds Your Weight Up
  • It may be medications, more than diseases, that
    tend to contribute to weight problems and its
    helpful for people to know that there may be
    alternatives. Some medicines that commonly cause
    weight gain
  • Anti-depressants Of the widely prescribed SSRIs
    (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and
    SNRIs (selective serotonin and norepinephrine
    reuptake inhibitors), many researchers and
    clinicians believe that paroxetine tends to
    produce the most weight gain, though typically
    not more than several pounds. Other
    antidepressants, like fluoxetine, sertraline and
    venlafaxine also may lead to weight gain,
    especially if used long term.
  • Anti-diabetes drugs Generally medications for
    Type II diabetes, the kind caused primarily by
    obesity are often responsible for further weight
    gain creating a vicious cycle. Even some patients
    on other anti-diabetes drugs may able to lose
    weight.
  • Oral contraceptives But the low-dose pills
    commonly prescribed now wont add more than a few
    extra pounds according to Berkowitz. Recent
    studies also back up that there is less of a
    connection between certain birth control and
    weight gain than previously thought.
  • Steroids The most commonly prescribed are adreno
    corticoids,. This is used to control severe
    autoimmune problems, including asthma, arthritis,
    lupus and inflammatory bowel disease. Long-term
    use can increase appetite and hike weight by 20
    pounds or more. Because of these symptoms these
    steroids alleviate are potentially
    life-threatening. You dont have much choice but
    to be on them when you need to be.
