Health Tip: Is a Medical Condition Affecting Your Weight?

(HealthDay News) -- Losing weight is never a piece of cake, but there are some medical conditions that may make it even more difficult.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says these conditions may make weight loss more of a challenge:

  • Hormonal disorders, such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, Cushing's disease and polycystic ovary syndrome.

  • Cardiovascular problems, including heart-valve disorders and congestive heart failure.

  • Disorders affecting sleep, including obstructive sleep apnea and upper airway resistance syndrome.

  • Eating disorders, such as bulimia and carbohydrate craving syndrome.
