I have Bronscheitiasis, Emphysema and Asthma. Diagnosed 2007. On various meds and inhalers.
Now and then my weight would drop when I got worse. I looked up what I should be eating etc and have taken all that on board throughout the years.
Over the last year I have gotten so skinny my bones are showing everywhere. I’m eating right and although it’s very hard I still walk as much as I can. My osteoarthritis has flared up this year and is not giving me a break at all, but I still try to be active.
I’ve asked for supplements, just in case I’m missing something in my food intake, but the doctor won’t do that. I’ve gone from being a size 10 to to between a four and six.
I’ve mentioned this several times to gps and respiratory nurse, no reaction! It’s causing me a great deal of stress now, as my family are constantly remarking on my weight and don’t know what to do about it anymore, it seems to fall on deaf ears!
My food intake is well above average and often!
Recent blood test showed nothing to be concerned about.
Blood pressure is continuously high and awaiting for a call from doctor regarding this.
How do you out on weight, any tips are welcome.
Thanks for reading this👍
