  • What could be the reason for sudden weight gain around the abdomen?

    There are a lot of things that can cause weight gain. It is possible it could be hypothyroidism or increased steroids either taken by mouth or from increased stress. It’s possible that there could be some type of a liver issue going on that is causing a back up of swelling due to blockage or dysfunction of the portal system. It certainly could be right sided heart dysfunction or a low albumin level in your blood. Sometimes increased abdominal swelling could be an abdominal or pelvic mass such is a benign or cancerous tumor. Of course the most frequent cause is excessive caloric intake or a diet that is very high in simple carbohydrates. READ MORE
