Aside from being annoying, the weight gain for me is dangerous because I already have hypertension and my dad and all four of his siblings have had heart attacks. Two died of heart attack, and the daughter of his brother who died of heart attack died herself of heart attack aged just 39. Other than my dad, NONE of them was smoker (my dad was a smoker) or a big drinker. But all were overweight/obese and two were also diabetic.
Like I said, right now it's a stone and a half I'm over.
But yeah, that fatigue is dire. As bad as it was when I had the iron-deficient anaemia whilst pregnant.
Unfortunately, I have excessive thirst and urination as well.
I know for a lot of women in my age range, their biggest fear is getting breast cancer. But unfortunately, heart disease is an even bigger cause of death among women, mainly because it's a silent killer.
Sorry for everyone else's worse than IA's, too!
