umbilical hernia and weight loss
Hello everyone, I'm a 13 years old kid and I have umbilical hernia since birth.
I'm going to go on a weight loss schedule and I was wondering does umbilical hernia effects weight and weight loss?
And can I heal from it at this age?
Please help I appreciate it so much

I don't think the hernia would affect your weight or prevent you from losing, but you should talk to your doctor regarding exercise, because there may be certain exercises you shouldn't do.

I am an adult woman and I have had a slight umbilical hernia for about a year now.  I do cardio and weight training and have not been affected by it.  I also make sure I strengthen by core muscles.  It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor first as mentioned before.
