I have hypoglycemia and have to eat every two hours or so. I've been gaining a lot of weight even though I eat mostly healthy foods—fresh fruits, vegetables and grains. How can I control my weight when I have to eat so much, so often?

Chronic Constipation

I have chronic constipation, which is probably from the medication I have to take for severe arthritis and a fractured spine. Regular use of over-the-counter laxatives results in nausea. Prescription laxatives haven't helped. High-fiber diet and activity aren't enough to prevent it. What can I do?

I am 74 years old and suffer from many health conditions, including osteoarthritis and peripheral neuropathy. I eat lots of fruits and veggies, but for some reason my edema keeps getting worse. My doctor tells me to just live with it. Can you offer any suggestions?

Since I've gone through menopause, I've gained a lot of weight and can't seem to lose it, no matter how healthy I eat or how much I exercise. Is this normal? Are there things I can do or foods I can eat to help initiate weight loss?
