It is a shame that your doctor is not willing to take enough effort to help you, especially since he is so willing to charge you a fee.
I am 21, female, and severely overweight. At my highest weight I weighed 300 pounds and now am down to 260. I am 5'10''. I get extremely short of breath while just sitting down and doing nothing.
When your body consumes more calories, in one meal, or during the day, than it can covert to energy, the excess calories become stomach fat and causes excessive, hazardous, acid levels of Insulin and Blood Sugar to circulate through every artery, gland and organ in your body.
The longer this unhealthy condition exists, the unhealthier the body becomes. Excess calories will slowly rot away the body from the inside out. As it gets worse, the symptoms get worse.
It is amazing how many diseases are caused by bad diets, and how many people, are deathly ill solely because of their diet.
Regardless..... I wish you the best of health and luck. Take care.... be well!
