 Question: I was under treatment for weight loss with a bariatric doctor for approximately 6 months and lost 13 Kg. I regained 3 and I lost them again. The diet I was following was the low carbohydrate. About a month and a half ago I realized that it was not working because I did not lose weight the Dr. changed the medicine (norex, proloid 15/60) but I did not lose weight. I became desperate and I drop the diet and the medication two weeks ago and...

 Surprise! I have just weighed myself and find that I have gone up 5 Kg. I am thoroughly frustrated. All the efforts I have put into 2 weeks of dieting have been to no avail. I am ashamed to go to see the doctor. I had an appointment today and did not go. He had told me that even if I did not lose I would stabilize at the same weight, but I did not want to because I still had to lose 8 kg. and now it turns out to be 13 Kg. How frustrating !!, what can I do? Lourdes

 Answer: The first thing that you must do is ask the Dr. what explanation he can give you as far as the use of these forbidden medications to try to lose weight. What you have is the logical rebound of these types of medications and diet.
