Do you struggle with losing weight due to not being able to exercise?

      Yes but I lost a lot of weight due to gasteroparesis and then was put on a feeding tube for a year where they over prescribed me calories. And because of the tube, I was always in pain and inactive. So I blew up like over night and now I'm off the feeding tube but the largest I've ever been. I'm still having stomach issues so I can't work out but I can't lose the weight and no one understands why I'm so frustrated because I should be happy I'm not on the tube anymore

      I can somewhat relate. A year ago I was on a feeding tube because my intestines have decided not to work. I was only on it for 2 months. I initially was gaining weight on it and they readjusted my calorie intake.

      I’m having an issue also with so many allergies and food intolerances that it makes it difficult to follow a diet.

      I also have POTS and the clinical trial is not for that but I hope it helps with my other conditions a bit. I do get so frustrated to struggle with losing weight. I also have so many allergies to food and I have MCAS so I can’t do a special diet so it makes it even harder

      Yes and it’s hard but I’m currently doing a clinical trial that could potentially help me with my chronic fatigue syndrome and mitochondrial dysfunction so once the medication gets approved I should be able to do some form of exercise without severe fatigue
