  1. you dont have to have skinny arms and legs i dont . you do have a hump i see.
  2. thyroid , cushings, growth hormone to name a few that can gain weight. What i have found is that eating very low carb and high protein can work for a while, but not long lasting i managed to lose 4 stone on low carb and still have all the other problems . It means that if you do have cushings or thyroid condition you have to work extra hard to keep it off .IM afraid that scotland is not the best place to have this condition i have been fighting for years for a diagnosis , i got so fed up of them saying eat less exercise etc etc etc , so now here i am had gastric sleeve a month ago, extreme way to prove i dont over eat , also before i left the hospital i gained 16lb in 4 days , almost had heart attack Bp and blood sugar high and low all over the place and still nothing, and no weight loss heavier now than before operation , i gave up hope with them years ago . anyway hope you have better luck jo x

  13. i have to agree with Melanie im afraid this drug is not going to make life changes and we need money spend in so many other areas other than the same 3 i all the time here in the uk its either cancer diabetes or heart disease i feel not enough money is spent on rare or other research we have came so far with cancer and we are leaders in the world could we not be leading in other areas? sorry if this sounds tough for some but i sympathize with any one who has cancer and any other life threatening illnesses for that matter you cant just put all the money in one pot. I also cant help feeling this is another story that has been highlighted because of our elections at the moment cant help thinking some people are being used in the wrong way. I have also to agree with Melanie that IVF should be paid by themselves im not totally agreeable with the practice and i havent read about many pensioners being given the cancer drug no one life is any more important than another. If i had cancer in my family or especially men 1 genetic i think i would have thought twice about having any kids thats just my opinion sorry if i offend anyone . jo

  20. iv read this before i actually tried DHEA tablets out of desperation last year for several weeks in the time i took them my facial appearance completely returned to normal no swelling i looked normal again but it didnt last and i went back to being the ugly fat face again lol but made me think that if this happend surely there has to have been an underlying problem for them to have worked in the first place ? good reading jo
