    Has anyone else had any patient who after a serious weight loss 30Kgs (not due to illness) etc, and basically been doin the same old thing (apart from diet I suppose) work, walking etc, developed foot problems / symptoms?

    Generally I thought it was the other way around.

    Perhaps if a change in the persons eating habits excluded certain nutrients ? :confused:

    Or perhaps since the Pt is lighter now the foot and leg and actually moving through a larger (Range of Motion) ROM


    Any other Ideas

    Look for other reasons; maybe not related to the body weight. Are you sure they are not more active now than when they were previously?

    Hi,

    If someone loses weight too quickly (as on a crash-diet) they will tend to lose muscle rather than fat.

    If your pt lost more than 2 pounds a week regularly this may be the reason for their foot symptomology.

    Of course, it could also be that they've hammered their feet whilst overweight, and are only now starting to feel the symptoms.

    HI,

    The body, as you know, takes time to adjust to any change that may be brought upon it.
    So too much and too fast of anything in life will have adverse effects on you.
    This would include weight gain and weight loss.

    If the weight loss has occurred without any obvious reason, then you need to look deeper as there must be a course.

    Hi,

    getting carried away - trying to reply between patients.

    the last word should of be 'cause'.

    After you post a message, there is an edit button on the bottom right of it that is present for a couple of hours, so you just need to click that to edit the message.
