Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LBTHBRIDOE Oetobtr Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I would like to have more information on safely losing weight as I am diabetic and on a 1000 calorie diet. At first I lost real fast and these past two months I've only lost six pounds. My doctor was quite per- turbed with me and said, "You are not staying on your diet." I really am, Dr. Lamb, and I know my doctor thinks I'm not telling him the truth. I take thyroid pills, water pills, high blood pressure medicine and oral medicine for my diabetes. My blood pressure is over 200, and I'm terribly nervous. My weight was 310 and now it is 270. I am 60 years old. I wanted the doctor to give me hormone shots, but he said no.' The doctor I used to go to before he died gave me es- trogen once a month, and I lost much faster and felt so good, too. Dear Reader You are do- ing fine. As long as you average a loss of a half pound a week and keep at it you will eventually get rid of your ex- cess fat. If you try to lose too fast you will feel tired and have other problems. It is common to lose weight fast at the beginning and then settle down to a slow, steady loss thereafter. It works out that you are losing three-quarters of a pound a week. That means your body is using a total of 1350 calories a day, counting the calories in the fat and the calories in your food. Unless you are reasonably active that may be all you can use. My suggestion would be for you to increase your physical, activity. You can do this without raising your blood pressure. 'Just start taking regular walks at a comfor- table speed for you. It isn't necessary to do it all at once. Break it up into two, three, or more short walks if it tires you, but do it every day, rain or shine. If you can build up to walking an hour a day, a dis- tance of about three miles, you will increase your weight loss over a half a pound more each week, or about 30 more pounds a year. Of course, that assumes you don't increase your food intake. With your present diet and the exercise combined, you should lose about 70 pounds of fat in "a year. That is fast enough. You have a long way to go, and it will just take time. Hormones are another matter. If you are getting a tablet medicine for this it should work just as well. In general, if a woman is deficient in female hormone to a significant degree then it is probably best to provide, some hormone replacement. Dear Dr. Lamb What is your opinion of taking oral vitamin B-12 for pernicious anemia7 I was getting only temporary benefit from iron injections plus B-12. My doc- tor started giving me liquid iron which seems to raise and stabilize my blood count. If I can absorb liquid iron why nor oral B-12? Dear Reader You have to have a substance formed in the stomach called intrinsic factor to enable you to absorb B-12. Iron is important in the process, too. If you are deficient in the intrinsic fac- tor you can't get B-12 into the bloodstream except by injec- tion. So, you can absorb iron from the digestive tract but if you have pernicious anemia, you cannot absorb B-12. I'd like to add that normal people can swallow B-12 and use it because they have a nor- mal amount of intrinsic fac- tor, while patients with per- nicious anemia do not. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Losing Weight" booklet. Flashback By The Canadian Press Oct. 17, 1974 Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip arrived at Washington after visiting Canada 17 years ago in 1957. The Queen told President Eisenhower that she came as Queen of Canada and offered "warm greetings of a friendly neighbor and staunch ally." An estimated one million persons lined drizzly streets to see the Royal Couple. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN e im. Tkt Neither vulnerable. South deals.
