I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem?
I was diagnosed with endo about 10 years ago. I was incredibly skinny at the time (at 20 years old, I was 47kg) and could eat what I wanted. The doctor put me on a pill (ovral) that made me pick up weight - 12kg in one month - and since then I've had to watch my weight. I lost it all and through diet and exercise and generally looking after my weight like everyone else, I've stayed stable. If I ate badly, I'd pick up a little bit of weight - nothing strange. I stopped that pill and went onto Yasmin.
However, 1.5 years ago, while still dieting/eating well and doing moderate exercise, I picked up 10kg IN A MONTH!
Long story short, I can't lose the weight. I had to go on insulin injections (whilst not being diabetic) to just lose 6kg, when I lost that, a few weeks of normal eating (not binging) made me pick it up again. I have to diet excessively to keep the weight off, but I can't lose anything. Eating normally just piles the weight on - it can be up to 4kg in a week. I've seen doctors, dieticians and biokinetists. No-one has the answer.
After doing some research, I found one or two articles that say it could actually be linked to my endometriosis. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if so, what did they do about it?
(PS. I am not taking any medication, apart from Tramacet, and I wasn't taking anything when I gained all that weight).
