I'm glad your not my GP. I'm having problems at the moment and all my GP want's to put them down to is my weight, but what if my problem was causing my weight.

Not sure which of us you were talking to retry, but welcome to the forum anyway.

I agree that you health could be influencing your weight - that's common. Depressed people don't eat properly and their weight can go up or down accordingly, they also don't tend to go out much or take much exercise which also promotes weight gain. The same can be argued for people in chronic pain. There are a few conditions endocrine conditions that cause chronic weight gain but they are a drop in the ocean compared with the most common cause - excessive intake and too little physical activity.

More often than not weight change is a symptom of behaviour rather than a disease.
