A woman has been told to cease exercising after doctors diagnosed her with androgens.
The woman is being treated at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, with the Mayo staff saying she is in remission, and she was also advised to stop using supplements and avoid certain areas.
The patient, who is from the UK, was admitted to the Mayo clinic in February, and doctors diagnosed the condition in July.
She was told she was likely to suffer from osteoporosis, a condition in which bone density and bone mineral density decline.
The Mayo clinic’s medical director Dr Mark O’Leary said she had to stop taking her supplements, stop eating a diet that had low fat, high fibre and was high in vitamin C.
She had been taking a beta-blocker called rivastigmine, which he said was given as a supplement but was not prescribed for the condition.
The medication is given to treat people with the common cold.
He said there was nothing in the woman’s medical history that might indicate that her condition was linked to her weight.
She did, however, have a history of anxiety, depression and some other psychiatric issues.
O’Leary told the BBC that the woman was told that the condition would affect her body in the future and she would have to continue her exercise regime.
He added: “The woman was advised that she should stop exercising at the end of the month and that her weight would drop.
She was also told that she would need to be on the diet in the beginning of the next month.
Owens said he could not comment on specific cases, but he said that if someone was taking steroids and not getting the benefits, they were not doing their job as a physician.
Dr James McQuillan, an expert in hormone therapy and a consultant for the Royal College of Gynaecologists, said the doctor’s recommendation was extremely unusual.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the suggestion that steroids might be beneficial for women with osteopurosis, because of the increased levels of bone density, was “very odd”.
Owels said that there is evidence that steroids are helpful for the elderly.
But he added that there was no evidence that there would be any benefit for those who were overweight.”
You can’t make a prediction,” he said.”
It is a guess, it is a science-based guess, and there is no good evidence.
“What we can say is that there has been a lot of research that has been done and there has not been any indication of any benefit.”
Dr Andrew Stacey, a clinical and epidemiological psychologist at the University of Oxford, said that a woman might be a good candidate for a steroid treatment.
“She may have an increased risk of developing osteoporsis and that may be associated with osteopenia, which is osteopancreatic cancer,” he told the programme.
“A high intake of creatine may increase the activity of the liver, which in turn increases the activity in the pancreas.”
Stacey said that while the evidence is lacking, steroids could be useful for those with an increased weight.
“There is some evidence that they may be helpful in some women with obesity, as well as in women who have osteopinosis,” he added.
Owatainen said the woman had told her doctors she wanted to stop exercise, and that she had a BMI of 30kg/65lbs (12.5lbs/7.8oz).
“We are treating her on a very aggressive course of antibiotics and she is now in remission,” he explained.
“We think that she will be fine.”
Stacy said that steroids were often prescribed for people with other conditions that were associated with weight gain, but that this was not a common treatment.
He also said that steroid use is often prescribed as a first line treatment, but some people have been prescribed them as a last resort.
“In some cases, there are cases where people who are using steroids do not need them to get through a day, because they are not getting enough,” he warned.
“If you have a condition where you are very heavy and you are getting really heavy, it may be that it’s just not possible for you to have enough of an appetite to sustain yourself in a day.”
Dr O’Hara told the ABC that it was not unusual for people to get into problems in relation to their weight.
He urged people to be cautious when considering a steroid as a treatment for osteoporation.
“The fact is that this is a very rare condition that is very rare in people and we do not think that this should be a new treatment for anyone,” he concluded.
