Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

How can I reduce my weight because I am losing my self-confidence? I am 218 lbs and 5.3 feet. I am 29 years old. My periods are regular. I am not taking any other medicines. All my blood tests are normal, which I took a week ago. Give me tips or a diet plan to reduce weight. I became obese in the last four years by staying in a hostel. The hostel food is good, but I do not know how I gained so much weight.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You have to do diet control and exercises to reduce weight. Count calories and take a 1200 Calorie diet. There is no other way, such as any medication.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
