Rapid Weight Gain Over The Last 6 Months?
Hello, I am a 20 year old student diamond, I am experiencing increasing weight gain. From 44kg to now I am 57 kg in the last 6 months. But the shape of my body is the fattest visible from the buttocks, thighs, and calves. What is the solution to the problem for that when I am only 150 cm tall. Should I be on a diet?
Hello Intan, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all I want to confirm beforehand, whether the weight gain you experience is really caused by you increasing the portion and frequency of your meals or it just happens even though you don't increase your portion and frequency of your meal?
Weight gain can lead to unwanted body fat accumulation. This accumulation of body fat can occur in any part of the body (it can vary from person to person). If your weight gain is due to you eating more or more often, then you can try to reduce your portion of your meal to be normal again, eat less foods that are high in calories (such as sweet foods, chocolate, cakes, etc.), and exercise. . To shrink the buttocks, thighs and calves, you can do sports such as jogging, cycling, going up and down stairs, jumping rope, or doing certain exercise movements that focus on the parts you want to reduce.
If your weight gain occurs accidentally (unintentional), it is necessary to find out the cause in advance. Some of the things that can cause unintended weight gain include:
hormonal disorders such as hypothyroidism, water retention cushing syndrome, such as in people with kidney disease, heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver using certain drugs such as corticosterioids, antidepressants, antipsychotics, hormonal contraceptives pregnancy If you experience weight gain that is not intentional, you should get yourself checked to the doctor. The doctor will conduct further evaluations including blood tests, liver and kidney function, hormone level checks, and other tests as indicated to find out the cause.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
