Re: Not overweight but unhealthy

Hi Salty Bear - thanks for your post. Your dad sounds as if he has got a lot right - he is active, maintains a healthy weight and is working. He adapts his food intake so as not to eat too much. If someone is not too keen on preparing food, cooking for yourself can be a bit of a chore, so finding so...

Re: fertility and weight!

Hi - I am not an expert on the medical treatment of PCOS and cannot really comment on the treatment you are being offered by your doctor. But you could ask for a second opinion if you are really unhappy about the options you are being offered. Besides the treatment though other doctors will suggest ...

Re: I wont eat for days

Hi BeckiF - as Wendy has said well done for getting in touch. I would support her suggestions for you to aim to get some help locally. If you are iron deficient and get this treated this may well help you to feel better about yourself. Is there anyone at home that you could talk to, and who might en...

Hi Deborah - you raise some really interesting questions. A little while ago I looked into the issues of obesity and hip replacement surgery and the conclusion was that although the complication rate of surgery was sometimes higher in patients who are very overweight, being very overweight should no...

Re: Asthma

Hi Kate, Thanks for your question - you pose some very pertinent questions. Firstly I would recommend that you make an appointment to see your practice nurse at your GPs to have a check on your asthma control. The aim of asthma treatment is to prevent attacks by the correct use of inhalers, and your...

Re: 16 and overweight.

Helena - I would really endorse Lisa's suggestion to try to talk to your mum. Sometimes it is hard for us mum's to really know what our kids are thinking, and a quiet conversation when itis just the two of you might really help. You must be honest in how you feel with her. Have you got a friend who ...
