I've tried losing weight long time I'm 5"2 and 82

Customer Question

I've tried losing weight for a long time I'm 5"2 and 82kg. I eat very healthy - fruit, veg, healthy carbs such as quinoa and rice, plenty protein such as salmon and chicken. For ex I was on a diet through a dietitian eating 1200 calories a day for 3 months - in that time I lost only 6kg!! Can an endocrinologist help?

Hi and thanks for the query,Yes endocrinologist can help if you have some endocrine problem which is causing weight gain like hypothyroidism or cushings disease. But if you do not have such problem he can not.
