Your healthcare provider may want you to monitor your weight.
Weight gain for overeating or lack of exercise is not the only reason for getting on a scale.
Watching your weight is particularly important in specific disease processes such as congestive heart failure, as weight gain overnight could indicate worsening of your condition.
It could be a visit or phone call with your healthcare provider versus a catastrophic event that leaves you hospitalized and in rehab for a long time.
Typical parameters that healthcare providers set are overnight
weight gain of 2 to 3 pounds. It is crucial to weigh oneself daily if you have
this condition and at the same time every day with the same amount of clothing
on to get an objective comparison of the day-to-day.
