Weight loss as a symptom
Weight loss is often a matter of choice – we choose to change our diet and exercise habits to become more healthy. If there is a clear and healthy reason then weight loss is normal. However, it is also common to lose weight if you have a serious disease. For most serious diseases, there will usually be one or more other symptoms that develop well before any weight loss. The weight loss in these situations is explained and can often be expected.
However, occasionally, the first symptom to develop in some serious diseases is weight loss. Other symptoms usually develop at some point later. Also, some people with weight loss as a first symptom actually have one or more symptoms if they were questioned about them. But, they may not have been aware of the significance of the other symptoms. For example, weight loss is a common symptom of untreated type 2 diabetes. Some people may see a doctor to say that they have lost weight and don’t know why. A doctor may then ask if they have been passing more urine than usual (a typical symptom of diabetes). To this question the person may say something like “now you mention it, yes I have. But I had just put that down to my ageing prostate gland and not thought much about it.”
The rest of this article lists some of the more common conditions where weight loss is sometimes the first symptom noticed by the person, relative or friend. It does not relate to people who are dieting or exercising to lose weight deliberately. The list is not exhaustive.
In the vast majority of cases of cancer, other symptoms will develop before any weight loss. There are many symptoms that can occur, depending on the type and site of the cancer. However, occasionally, weight loss is the first symptom noticed. The weight loss is partly due to the increased activity of cancer cells in the body that require nutrition. (Weight loss in more advanced cancer is due to various combined factors.)
Type 2 diabetes occurs mainly in people aged over 40 although it can occur at younger ages. The four common symptoms are being thirsty a lot of the time, passing large amounts of urine, tiredness and weight loss. Some people pass off the first three symptoms to do with other things, or ‘getting older’. So, weight loss is sometimes the first thing reported to a doctor. The weight loss is partly due to the sugar (glucose) that is passed out with the urine.
Depression has a number of symptoms. However, some people do not recognise that they have depression. They may feel low and not right but cannot say why. They may even think of it as just normal for them. Many people with depression can hide their true feelings from friends and family. Weight loss may develop due to not eating much. It is sometimes friends or family who may actually notice that a person has lost weight and it then turns out to be due to depression.
Some people who drink a lot of alcohol do not look after themselves very well. Their diet may not be very good and they may lose weight. However, they may be in denial about an alcohol problem. It may be friends or family who actually notice that the person has lost weight. Indeed, this is a way that a hidden alcohol problem in some people comes to light. Family and friends may show concern about weight loss and not be aware that the person has an alcohol problem.
Hyperthyroidism means that you make too much of a hormone called thyroxine. The extra thyroxine causes many of your body’s functions to speed up. There are lots of possible symptoms such as:
Another typical symptom is losing weight despite an increased appetite. This may be a first symptom. But, again, some of the other symptoms that may occur such as being restless, nervous, emotional or irritable may just be put down to a stressful time of life or to your personality. In the early stages of hyperthyroidism some people actually feel well and full of energy and don’t realise they have a problem but lose weight.
It would be unusual not to have other symptoms with a chronic infection. But, occasionally, the first symptom that is noticed with infections such as tuberculosis or HIV is weight loss. Hookworm infection of the gut is another example where weight loss may be the first indication of disease. Hookworm is a very common problem worldwide (but rare in the UK). Likewise, there are various conditions that cause persistent inflammation of a part or parts of the body. Again, other symptoms would be usual. But, sometimes an inflammatory condition such as polymyalgia rheumatica may just make you feel unwell and lose weight prior to other symptoms developing.
There are various diseases that can affect the way food is absorbed and taken into the body from the gut. These would normally cause symptoms such as diarrhoea. However, weight loss may be the first symptom noticed. Examples include coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
People in the early stages of dementia may appear to get by reasonably well but, in fact, they are not able to look after themselves very well. They may have a poor diet but appear happy in themselves. Again, it is sometimes friends or family who may first notice that a person is not right and has lost weight and it then turns out to be the early stages of dementia.
In conditions such as anorexia, a person usually knows they are tightly controlling their diet and exercise and are actively trying to lose weight. However, this may be hidden from friends and family and may not be divulged even to the doctor.
Sometimes medication may cause side-effects resulting in weight loss. For example, some pills may cause a loss of appetite, or a dry mouth. Some cause heartburn or give a mild tummy discomfort. Others may affect the sense of taste or smell, or make people feel sick. Any of these side-effects could affect eating habits and result in a loss of weight.
If you have lost weight and do not know why then see a doctor. This is because, as a general rule, the earlier a serious problem is diagnosed, the better the chance that treatment may improve the outlook (prognosis).
Your doctor is likely to ask various questions. He or she may actually uncover other symptoms that you were either unaware of or did not think were significant. He or she may also examine you. Tests, such as blood tests, may or may not be appropriate. Following a doctor’s assessment, the likely cause may be clear and your doctor will advise on what to do next.
The treatment depends on the cause. See individual leaflets on the various diseases that can cause weight loss.

So, lets get one thing straight.
I was the biggest skeptic about diet in literally the entire world.
Trust me, Ive tried my fair share of diets just like everyone else
Theres one thing that always stood out to me.
Its not that most diets are completely junk.
Many have promise, and give you some results
In fact, Id say they can be very effective,
But the juice isnt worth the squeeze (even if youre on a juice diet).
The Wheel of Monotony.
Does this pattern sound familiar?
Start a new diet with starry eyes and high hopes
Struggle to eat the new food, feel worse but stay the course.
Frustration sets in because of restriction and lowered energy.
Affects social life and ability to go out.
Hit a boiling point and quit.
This is exactly what would happen to me Every. Single. Time. I tried a new diet.
These diets just werent worth the headache of meal prep, food restriction and overall willpower required.
Most of the time, I was just trying to lose a few quick pounds for the summer month or show up to a friends wedding in a trimmer state.
I didnt need a lifestyle adjustment, but thats what it felt like.
So I started to think thats as good as it got, until I stumbled upon the 2 Week Diet.
Trust me, I rolled my eyes about as hard as a human being possibly can.
It explained that slow, torturous weight loss isnt the only way, and that you can lose weight fast and safely.
Again, eye roll. It was only when I read a little further about why its different that my ears perked up a bit.
It explained how theres many scientific reasons why most diets arent that efficient or effective.
It even promised losing weight fast, easily and without hating yourself during the process.
I was as skeptical as ever, but I thought Theres a money-back guarantee, what do I have to lose?
And boy, was I glad I took a chance.
Im down two dress sizes and 14 pounds in two weeks!
Thats amazing to me. Most diets had me struggling to lose 5 pounds in that same time.
Even more amazing?
Thats on the low end of results. People are reporting greater results than that!
Now, you might be thinking, That sounds great, but what food. Were you allowed to eat anything?
Thankfully, this diet was not rice cakes and air.
There was real, satisfying food! I never felt seriously deprived or hungry the entire time.
Skeptic to Believer.
Ive never had my mind changed so quick in my life.
I thought that diets ALWAYS had to be hard and arduous.
This was the first time in my life that a diet was fast, easy and fun.
Im actually thinking about doing the diet again to get a head start on a spring/summer bod.
For those whove tried everything, I feel your pain. Ive been in your shoes. I was as unable to follow slow diets as anyone.
This is different.
You finally get quick results youll love. Youll finally be able to follow the steps.
Itll finally be worth it.
Sign up below and give it a shot. You wont regret it. Dont forget, you get a full money-back guarantee.
Theres nothing to lose, except the unwanted fat of course!

How to Lose Weight Fast Weight Loss Science
Posted: February 7, 2018 at 4:40 am
Doing well on the ketogenic diet means that you understand the right foods to eat. Because your mom told you to eat your vegetables that means you need to get some vegetables into your system daily.
But on keto, not all vegetables are good to have.
Because vegetables contain carbs!
This is one of those mind-blowing facts that seems to take people aback.
Carbs are in bread, pastas, and sweets, what the heck are they doing in vegetables?
I cant tell you why theyre there. Theyre just there.
They arent crazy like in bread but they are there depending on the vegetable.
In this post, I want to show you some of the veggies that you are safe to eat on the ketogenic diet.
An important rule of thumb to keep in mind is that if the vegetable is grown above ground (spinach), then chances are you can eat it on keto. Lettuce is an exception in that if you eat too much you can easily knock yourself out of ketosis.
If the vegetable grows below ground then you should stay away.
Celery is one of those weird zero-calorie foods that actually helps you burn more calories than you consume.
I guess thats why its pointless eating celery unless you can dip it into something. Thankfully on keto, you have the luxury of mixing your celery with either ranch or almond butter.
Please dont mix both together because that is just gross.
Spinach is the goto veggie for a lot of keto dishes. I like to mix it with my eggs in the morning and if I need a quick snack Ill grab a handful of spinach, pour some ranch on it, and Im good to go.
One of my favorite keto recipes is this Spinach Mexican Casserole.
Funny thing is that I absolutely hated spinach as a child.
Now? Its not so bad.
If you could marry asparagus then my wife would leave me and marry asparagus.
Thats how much she loves it.
I enjoy it but Im not crazy about it.
Its great when you wrap it in bacon and cook it with some coconut oil. Thats a keto goers dream right there.
Technically this is a keto fruit but Im listing it here because some people dont want to spend time thinking about the technicalities between fruits and vegetables.
Avocados are a fantastic source of fats and can be a great way to make sure you hit your daily macros when doing keto.
This is another breakfast or snack item that I like to include in my daily routine. It works as a fantastic fuel source when your body finally reaches ketosis.
Ill admit that I didnt know much about zucchini until my wife introduced me to zucchini boats and wooooooo boy, things changed.
I love zucchini boats!
Stuff them with almost anything you want and you have yourself a nice little dish.
Its amazing the creative things that people come up with when it comes to food. I would just grab a zucchini and dip it into a bottle of ranch.
My creativity is limited.
Another staple of the keto diet, cauliflower has superpowers because it can act as a substitute for rice or mashed potatoes.
But if you really want to enjoy your cauliflower then you need to lightly season it and roast it in the oven.
I could eat just that for a couple of meals straight. It really is that good.
Cucumber is similar to celery in my mind in that you need to mix it with something to get any value out of it.
It goes great in detox waters but we arent talking about detox waters here.
We are talking about veggies that you can actually eat in your keto recipes.
Cucumber works though when you want to add a bit of crunch to a meal or just have it over your spinach salad.
I have a confession in that the only time I eat cabbage is when I have it in my spicy sausage & cabbage skillet melt.
Im sure there are other great uses for cabbage but thats the only time I actively hunt it down.
I have nothing against cabbage.
Its just cabbage.
Dont give it to me unless youre going to cover it in cheese or ranch. Yes, both of these are keto-friendly and that is why the ketogenic diet is so awesome!
I used to think that cauliflower was broccolis ugly step-sister, but now I know its the other way around.
Broccoli is good but it takes a backseat to the almighty cauliflower.
When I lived in Los Angeles, kale was a superfood.
I hate it.
I really cant stand the taste of it.
Raw. Cooked. Burnt.
It doesnt matter, I dont like kale.
I understand its benefits but that doesnt mean I have to enjoy it.
Because I dont. Get it out of my face.
My mom loves brussels sprouts. They arent bad but I cant stand the smell of them cooking.
Keep me out of the kitchen and just let me know when they are ready and Im all over them.
If youre looking for a snack then check out these cheesy brussels sprouts and if you actually want a meal then scope out this brussel sprout burger recipe.
Its important to understand that all of these vegetables have carbs. They just have a lesser amount than other foods so as long as you arent eating a whole field of them you should be okay.
Remember, on keto, the general rule is that you want to stay below 20g of carbs daily so some carbs arent bad. Especially when they come from vegetables that have a low glycemic index.
If youre interested in learning more about the ketogenic diet and how it can help you lose weight then check out our 28-Day Challenge where we guide you through the keto diet and help you lose between 10-21 pounds in just 4 weeks with keto.

In addition to our All Inclusive Testosterone Therapy Program, Chicagoland Mens Health offers a separate Hormone Replacement Therapy service to those patients interested in increasing their levels of Human Growth Hormone.
Sermorelin (GHRH) is a hormone produced in the brain which stimulates the production and release of Human Growth Hormone from the pituitary gland. As we age, Sermorelin production decreases, leading to a scarcity of HGH.

Will President Trumps Physical Show That Hes Obese?
Posted: January 31, 2018 at 8:40 pm
Last week we discussed the differences between HGH and HCG for weight loss, however we didn’t discuss Sermorelin vs HCG for weight loss and how this HGH stimulating peptide is different. Sermorelin is a HGH secretagogue, or a peptide that causes the body to naturally release its own HGH. This way, the HGH that is produced is natural and there are no concerns about the purity of the actual hormone since it is produced by the body. Sermorelin causes a gradual rise in HGH production after being injected for several weeks at a time. Sermorelin directly causes the body to create its own HGH, while the hormone HGH itself is often injected for the purpose of weight loss and anti-aging. Sermorelin and HGH have different effects on the body, and Sermorelin has become a popular anti-aging treatment that also has some weight loss gains. However, between Sermorelin and HCG, HCG is still the better hormone for weight loss for reasons explained below.
HCG is the most widely used and effective hormone for the specific purpose of weight loss. It is clinically proven to assist with weight loss on a very low calorie diet. Most people try Sermorelin therapy for the purpose of anti-aging, and it has a wide range of positive effects on the body. Weight loss is certainly possible with Sermorelin therapy but it is rarely the primary goal of the treatment. The usual primary goal of Sermorelin injections is to replace any reduced HGH levels that are the result of aging or other causes. Sermorelin can result in a moderate amount of weight loss but it often needs to be combined with exercise and a healthy diet, and it can be much more difficult to lose weight with Sermorelin alone compared to HGH.
Unlike the HCG diet, there is no specific Sermorelin diet that will optimize the weight loss potential of the treatment. Sermorelin results in weight loss when administered as a treatment over a long period of time. The weight loss that normally results is usually around 5 to 10 pounds after several months of treatment, usually four to six months. This assumes very little to no exercise. The HCG diet on the other hand is designed to help the body lose as much weight as possible by maximizing the effectiveness of the hormone. The diet avoids specific foods that can cause an interaction with the hormone, and it was developed through clinical research. There is no such protocol for Sermorelin outside of general guidelines for eating healthy and exercising on a regular basis.
As previously mentioned, weight loss is only a side benefit of Sermorelin therapy, and the amount of weight loss will vary dramatically from one person to another. In general, the weight loss that Sermorelin can offer is very limited. It is a good treatment for many people who are HGH deficient, and it is a good way to maintain a healthy weight when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. However, HCG is far better for the purpose of losing a large amount of weight in a short period of time. HCG can realistically cause up to 40 pounds of weight loss in just six weeks when combined with the very low calorie diet protocol. It has been proven time and time again to be one of the best weight loss treatments in the world, and for patients who intend to lose weight there is simply no other hormone or treatment that will work better in the vast majority of cases.
When combined with exercise, Sermorelin is great for maintaining a healthy weight. The loss of HGH that occurs with aging is correlated with an increase in body fat and a decrease in muscle mass. The loss of HGH also slows down the body’s fat metabolism, which is why it is easier to put on weight as we start to age and harder to lose it. Sermorelin helps with all of that and more. It helps restore a more youthful metabolism, so that the food you do eat isn’t converted into fat as easily. It also helps with improving muscle mass which in turn burns more calories when you are sedentary, and it helps burn abnormal fat that you already have. In general, it’s a great option for aging adults to help them maintain their weight.
Sermorelin is also proven to be effective at helping adults restore a more normal sleep cycle. An abnormal sleep cycle and insomnia are both associated with weight gain. People who stay up for longer periods of time are more likely to eat to stay alert or out of boredom, and many sleep disorders and problems are associated with weight gain. Sermorelin has been reported to help adults improve their sleep within just days of starting the treatment, and by getting higher quality sleep and more sleep, it can be easier to maintain a healthy weight. Most adults need a minimum of 7 hours of sleep per night to be adequately rested, and if you are an aging adult with weight to lose as well as sleep problems, you may definitely want to consider starting Sermorelin therapy.
You will only lose a very small amount of weight on Sermorelin therapyunless you exercise regularly. One of the main benefits of taking Sermorelin is the fact that you will recover more quickly from your workouts, and you will build more muscle than you would without the treatment. Just as a young person can exercise while maintaining a high energy level, Sermorelin can help improve your energy levels when you are working out and help your body get more out of your workouts. The result is that your body will respond better to physical activity. To really see significant weight loss results with the therapy you do have to exercise regularly. However, exercise is definitely not a requirement for the HCG diet and as a result it is often more convenient for patients, especially those with a lot of pounds to lose.
A main benefit of the HCG diet is that it never requires exercise for weight loss and it works fast. Anyone who wants to lose weight as quickly as possible should consider starting the HCG diet. Once the diet has been completed, if the patient has a HGH deficiency, it can easily be corrected with Sermorelin therapy and it should. Although HCG is better for weight loss than Sermorelin, Sermorelin is often necessary for many patients who have a small to significant HGH deficiency. It offers a great way for patients to maintain a youthful metabolism, lose a few pounds, put on more muscle and get more out of their workouts, but the HCG diet offers the fastest way to lose weight in the shortest period of time.

Sermorelin vs HCG for Weight Loss – Nu Image Medical

TruBalance has been an opportunity for me to change not only what I eat but the way I think about what I eat.
I am 65 years old. I have had a weight problem since I was seven years old and had my tonsils out. It left a hole I needed to fill. I have been on Weight Watchers so many times I should have a lifetime membership from persistence. Ive done Physicians Weight Loss, Nutrisystem, the program at Baptist Hospital, Jenny Craig, and tried it on my own.
All of these programs have a few things in common:
TruBalance is the only program I have used that explains the whys of eating the way they suggest. They have never told me to eat more to lose weight. My coach, Megan Rochell, has always been supportive and, most importantly, non judgmental.
This program doesnt say you have to eat every two to three hours to keep your metabolism up. For the first time I dont constantly think about food. I never think about how long it has been since I ate and what am I going to eat now to keep my metabolism up so I wont gain weight.
TruBalance has shown me that the way the food is produced is as important as what I eat. It has given me the information I need to choose my food intelligently. It has given me the knowledge to become very picky about what I eat. I have found I am eating more organic and experimenting with seasonings. I am looking at more than just how many calories are in the food.
TruBalance has given me the opportunity to change things in my life. I no longer have high blood pressure after being on medication for decades. I have changed my Coke Zero addiction to an addiction to water. Most importantly, to me anyway, is I no longer suffer from the I have to have something to eat now syndrome. TruBalance has given me the chance to relax and enjoy life.
