Losing weight isn't easy for most people, and pulmonary hypertension makes it all the more difficult. Living with PH means decreased lung function, shortness of breath during everyday activities, retained water weight, and limited mobility. All of these things compound to make exercise and healthy cooking overwhelming.
On myPHteam, the social network and online support group for those living pulmonary hypertension, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Losing weight is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
Here are some conversations about losing weight:
• I joined a Healthy Living exercise program (working similar to a pulmonary or cardiac rehab group). I go 3 times per wk (1.5 hrs) of exercise with several health professionals that are working WITH me.
Can you relate?
