Body Concerns

Diagnosis

A blood test offers insight into biological processes and body functioning that can contribute to difficulty with weight management.Salivary Hormone Test evaluates your body's levels of bio-available Progesterone, Estradiol, Estriol, Testosterone, DHEA and Cortisol.

Weight loss for Hypothyroid

Because patients with an underactive thyroid tend to have a very low basal metabolic rate, one of the most noticeable symptoms of hypothyroidism is weight gain and difficulty losing extra weight. (Sometimes an overactive thyroid can mimic an underactive thyroid by causing weight gain, although this is less common). Vcare special Body Healing Program will help to reduce weight and get back to shape.

Weight loss for Diabetic

People who have poorly controlled diabetes also sometimes experience weight loss because their bodies are unable to properly convert food into energy. This is because they either are not producing enough insulin or their bodies are unable to use the insulin they produce properly. This food winds up as excess glucose circulating in the blood (resulting in high blood glucose!).Vcare Special Body Healing Program will help to get rid of extra weight.

Weight loss for PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease)

PCOD is one of the most common hormonal disorders in women of reproductive age, affecting 5 to 10 percent. Women with PCOD have irregular menstrual bleeding and often have difficulty getting pregnant. The syndrome occurs when levels of hormones are abnormal. The link between PCOD and obesity is complicated. Signs and symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome begin for some females soon after they start having periods.Women with PCOD produce too much insulin, or the insulin they produce does not work as it should. The inability of insulin to function normally is one reason why women with PCOD tend to gain weight or have a hard time losing weight. For others, PCOD develops later on, following substantial weight gain.Vcare special Body Hilling program will help PCOD patients a very good weight loss and we will help them to maintain also.

FAQs

What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a disease of the pancreas, an organ located behind your stomach. Normally, the pancreas releases a substance called insulin into the blood. Insulin helps the body to use sugars and fats that are broken down from the foods we eat. When a person has diabetes, the pancreas:

  • Does not make insulin
  • Makes only a little insulin or,
  • Makes insulin, but the insulin does not work as it should.

Diabetes is a lifelong disease. People with diabetes must manage their disease to stay healthy.

What causes diabetes?

Health care providers do not yet know what causes diabetes. The following factors may increase your chance of getting diabetes:

  • Family history of diabetes
  • African-American, Hispanic, Native American or Asian-American race or ethnic background
  • Being overweight
  • Age (Chances increase with age)
  • Taking certain medicines
  • Being pregnant*

*Pregnancy puts extra stress on a woman's body that causes some women to develop diabetes. Blood sugar levels often return to normal after childbirth. Yet, women who get diabetes during pregnancy have an increased chance of developing diabetes later in life.

What are the types of diabetes?

There are two types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2.

  • Type 1 diabetes — The pancreas makes little or no insulin. A person with type 1 diabetes must take insulin to survive. This type occurs most often in people who are under 30 years old.
  • Type 2 diabetes — Insulin is made but it doesn't work as it should. Nine out of 10 people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. This type occurs most often in people who are over 40 years old and overweight.

What causes PCOS?

Although the cause of PCOS is not known, it appears that PCOS may be related to many different factors working together. These factors include insulin resistance, increased levels of hormones called androgens, and an irregular menstrual cycle.

What effect can weight loss have on women with PCOS?

For overweight women, weight loss alone often regulates the menstrual cycle. Even a small weight loss of 10–15 pounds can be helpful in making menstrual periods more regular. Weight loss also has been found to improve cholesterol and insulin levels and relieve symptoms such as excess hair growth and acne.

Does extra weight alone compromise fertility?

No, one should not assume weight alone is a problem. It can be, but it is not a given. In fact, weight is probably only a factor less than 10 percent of the time. The primary obstacle for overweight women is ovulation. If your physician suggests all your problems will be solved simply by losing weight, seek a second opinion because even if your weight is an issue, it is something medications can assist or work around.

What are the most common weight-related reasons for infertility?

The two most common problems are excess estrogen and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Along with both of these is a greater chance of a luteal phase defect (LPD).

Estrogen: Fat cells produce estrogen (estrone - E1). The problem is that if you get too much estrogen your body reacts as if it is on birth control. Ovulation may not occur or it may be inadequate. An inadequate ovulation contributes to LPD, mentioned below.

PCOS: This is a endocrine disorder with any combination of several symptoms. These symptoms include irregular cycles, cysts in the ovaries, ovulatory pain, anovulation, acne, excess body hair (face, chest, below navel, toes), heavy and painful periods, as well as a high LH-FSH ratio (>3:1). Diagnosis involves both a physical exam, usually including an ultrasound to check ovaries, and blood work

LPD: The luteal phase in the time between ovulation and menses. The ideal length is 14 days, 12-16 being normal. There are a number of ways to diagnose the problem, including serum progesterone tests 7 days post-ovulation, endometrial biopsies, and the length of the luteal phase can be observed by charting basal body temperatures and/or being aware of when ovulation occurred. LPD can be caused by inadequate ovulation, so improving the quality and perhaps quantity of follicles produced will help straighten things out so that the lining is properly supported.

Does weight effect conception rates? What about body fat distribution?

There was a study published in the British Medical Journal that found that very lean women and very obese women (BMI >38) had lower conception rates. However, body fat distribution was found to have a greater impact. Women with a high waist-hip ratio had greater trouble conceiving -- so being shaped like an apple is not as good for conception as being shaped like a pear. PCO women may be more likely to have the apple shape.

Does the extra weight put me at risk for pregnancy complications?

Extra weight can be related two pregnancy problems: gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia. Generally speaking, gestational diabetes is very controllable. One thing that is very important to remember is that even though you may be at higher risk for something, it doesn't mean you are at a high risk. It also doesn't mean that you are not entitled to have a baby.

There used to be some trouble is gauging the size of a baby being carried by a large woman, but with the use of transvaginal ultrasounds dating a pregnancy isn't as hard as it used to be.

Large women may be at higher risk of having babies with neural tube defects, but it still isn't a high risk. It is possible that folic acid supplements will reduce the risks, though there is one study that disagrees with that.

Does the extra weight put me at greater risk of a miscarriage?

Excess weight does not contribute to miscarriage; however, PCOS, which is common in overweight women, does create a higher statistical chance of pregnancy loss than in the general population. The reason is related to hormone imbalance. Both elevated LH and testosterone are linked to miscarriage, as is insulin resistance/hyperinsulinemia. There are treatments available that help to minimize these risks.
