Do fibroids flare up?
Symptoms Vary. Fibroid pain may be mild or extreme, constant or just occasional. It can flare up during sexual intercourse, bowel movements, exercise, or your period. Pain often radiates down the leg.
Can fibroids cause you to lose weight?
Fibroid growth is triggered by estrogen, which can be overproduced by excess abdominal fat. This means that the more overweight you are, the more susceptible you are to fibroids, which may cause you to gain even more weight. A great way to reduce fibroid burden, or prevent fibroid growth in some cases, is weight loss.
Can vitamin D shrink fibroids?
Only a controlled clinical trial can prove whether vitamin D does or does not help prevent, limit, or shrink fibroid tumors. However, given the broad benefits of vitamin D3, it seems reasonable for women to make sure they are getting enough from sunshine, seafood, and/or supplements to ensure optimal blood levels.
