i cannot emphasise enough how desperate i am for a diagnoses. I am a 23 year old female who has struggled with weight my entire life. i was a lean ,even skinny child but Post puberty Weight came on instantly, and came on big, without making any sense. I was put on a healthy eating plan designed by a dietician as well as an active PE plan, but nothing happened, the weight stayed on, and let me tell you that its a very bulky thick-legged (calves and thighs), thick-arm kind of weight.The only breakthrough i got was one i turned anorexic for about a year when i was 16, and then too did weight on arms and legs stay(there was a very slight thinning). It is the most puzzling unnatuaral thing. My waist is unproprotional to my heavy arms and legs.My wrist size is tiny and so is my frame i have a small face and slim neck.,and i am pretty short (notabnormally though) . It has stayed here for 13 years now, despite all the consistent exercise all the balanced eating for years end. I have been for the blood tests about 5 times over. tests for the endocrine glands.etc, i always suspected hypothyrodism etc but that has been cleared over and over by a three different endocrinoligists.I am a personal fitness trainer and have seen a series of dieticians for years now, nobody seems to be able to give me anyanswers. I am very yellow on my palms and soles of my feet. I was resently sent for cortisol, acth,prolactin tests, which were all cleared as well as cushings syndrom (im not sure why i ws sent for this test!) In any case, im desperate for answers, i feel abnormal, the fat looks unnatural, and even if its not treateable, i need to know, what is wrong with my body.please anybody. help me- are there anymore tests, ?? any suggestions? could certain tests not be sensitive enough to get a diagnosis.
