Why Your Body May Be Refusing To Drop Weight No Matter What You Do

If you've been putting in the hard work that's necessary to lose weight, but your attempts have just felt like an endless series of banging your head against the same wall, hear me now. You're not crazy. Weight loss resistance is a description for an entire category of people who, due to certain physiological imbalances, are unable to lose fat through traditional methods of healthy diet and regular exercise. The causes range from thyroid malfunction to hormone imbalance, sleep deprivation to food intolerances or digestive imbalance, and more. Because there are many potential sources of the problem, there isn't a one-size-fits-all treatment that works for all weight loss resistant individuals. The key is to uncover your own, specific chemical imbalance or physiological "glitch" so that your doctor can target it with a treatment plan tailored to you. Until you talk to your doctor, you cannot be sure what plan is best for you, including if [The 20/20 Diet] would help you lose weight. And thanks to all the research conducted on the subject in recent years, doctors are armed with more methods for you to manage and treat the core of your problem than ever before. Having been an athlete for my entire life, it was more than a little alarming when I found, a few years ago, that I was struggling to maintain my target, healthy weight. I was moving in what felt like slow motion across the tennis court in my afternoon games and feeling winded far too easily. The subtle signs ...

CONCLUSIONS: Although DM was the disease most commonly associated with PUs and NAs, chronic hyperglycemia may not have been the major underlying risk factor. The major risk covariates are sensation loss from polyneuropathy, old age, obesity, repetitive foot injury, and inadequate foot care or treatment. Physicians and other healthcare providers can help by identifying patients at risk and instituting measures such as adequate foot care to decrease these risks.

Authors: Lenfant M, Callemeyn J, Alaerts H, Meersseman W, Van Moerkercke W Abstract A 62-year-old man of North African descent presented with weight loss in the past year and diarrhea for three weeks. His medical history included erosive rheumatoid arthritis, treated with methotrexate and adalimumab. Histological examination of a duodenal biopsy showed foamy macrophages in the lamina propria, with PAS-positive cytoplasmatic inclusions. These findings are compatible with Whipple's disease, a rare chronic infectious disease caused by Tropheryma whipplei, an opportunistic bacterium. It is typically seen in middle-aged...

Authors: Kirk JK, Hunter JC, Mihalko SL, Danhauer SC, Shumaker SA Abstract INTRODUCTION: Reducing symptom burden is often secondary to risk factor control in diabetes. Symptom burden with comorbid medical conditions and the need for symptom palliation are not well defined. Although neuropathy is one of the most frequent occurring comorbidities of diabetes, patient experience is inconsistent. Using in-depth interview, we assessed patients' perspectives of pain experienced through neuropathy and the impact on type 2 diabetes management. Areas covered: Participants completed a structured telephone interview during whi...
