Fat arms?

This may seem silly...but I figure, why not ask.

I could stand to lose some weight. But my weight is evenly distributed... with the exception of my arms. My upper arms seem "fatter" and I'm not sure why.

Anyone know of a medical cause for this?

  • I too have fat arms. size 10 petite pants and 2x top due to my fat arms. I had uterine cancer a few years ago and after exploring some effects of the hyster. i had I read that if a certain gland was removed during the cancer surgery it could cause edima of either the arms or the legs. Took the information to my OBGYN Dr. he told me to go to Mayo Clinic. Havent done so yet. Hoping there is something easier to cure the problem.

  • I also have the fat arm problem. It was not always this way for me. In 2005 I developed alcoholic hepatitis. Prior to this my arms were proportionate to my body size. After my hospital stay, in which I lost 60 lbs and was a bone rack, I slowly started gaining the much needed weight back. I am now a size 10, but unfortunately not my arms. I need at least a 16 or higher due to my arms. I have also tried to find a reason for this and can find some correspondence due to liver problems and this happening, but not much. Even after doing arm weights for months, it didn't help, and seemed to make the arms bigger too. I can actually see the fat deposits in my arms. Hope this helps somewhat.
