Body weight has risen dramatically, but the body is always lethargic, so what?

1 Answer:

Hello Nurul, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, you should also explain, how much did you gain in weight? Are there any changes in your diet? Are there other lifestyle changes? Are there other symptoms experienced besides weight gain and lethargy?


The following are some possible causes of weight gain accompanied by lethargy:

pregnancy

hypothyroidism or thyroid hormone deficiency
diabetes
fluid retention for example due to heart problems, liver disorders, kidney disorders
psychiatric disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders
poor diet and lifestyle, for example overeating, not much exercise, lots of sleep and not much physical movement everyday

To find out clearly the cause of the disorder you are experiencing, you should do a check directly to the doctor of internal medicine. The doctor will inquire further about your symptoms, do a physical examination, and conduct certain investigations if deemed necessary (for example blood tests include examination of thyroid hormones, blood sugar, liver and kidney function, heart tests such as ECG or echo). If there is indeed a suspicion towards pregnancy, you can also confirm in advance by doing a test pack. If indeed you are pregnant, then you can see a gynecologist directly.


For now, some of what you can do:

Take care of your diet, avoid eating foods that are too fatty, too sweet or high in sugar
drink in sufficient quantities every day, a minimum of 2-3 liters a day
do regular exercise, at least 30 minutes a day
increase your physical activity every day (don't just sit or lie down)
reduce stress
get enough sleep and rest


So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
