4.        
Seasonal Affective Disorder Can Make You Gain Weight.  
It is commonly known that depression can lead to weight gain.
But what you may not know is that a more specific malady may
be the culprit.  Seasonal Affective Disorder is marked by
recurring depression beginning at the same time each year.  In
addition to weight gain, symptoms include decreased energy,
increased sleep, and carbohydrate craving.   

A study in Switzerland by A Wirz-Justice and others , as well as
a separate study by Dr. Norman Rosenthal and others , found
that when patients were exposed to even small increases of
yellow light, depression and other symptoms decreased.

At this point, scientists don't know exactly what it is about
sunlight that helps to lift depression. It could be the light itself
or it could be the extra Vitamin D our bodies produce in
response to sun light. (Read more about
why your body has
such a critical need for Vitamin D and what diseases Vitamin D
deficiency can cause.)


5.        
Kidney Problems Can Cause Weight Gain.  Kidney
problems such as "membranous nephropathy" can cause
weight gain.  Membranous Nephropathy is inflammation of the
kidney to a degree that interferes with proper kidney function.  
More specifically, it is a thickening of the part of the kidney that
helps to filter waste and fluid from the blood, affecting nearly 2
out of 10,000 people.   In addition to weight gain, symptoms
include
foamy urine, frequent urination at night, and fatigue.  




























6.        
Hepatorenal Syndrome.  Another problem of the kidney,
but, unlike the malady described above, Hepatorenal Syndrome
begins with malfunctioning of the liver.  The consequences
include less urine removal from the body, so that waste
products that contain nitrogen gather in the bloodstream.  In
addition to weight gain, symptoms include
dark urine, mental
confusion or delirium, and nausea.

7.        
Metabolic Syndrome.  Researchers at University of
Southampton School of Medicine and Southampton General
Hospital define Metabolic Syndrome as “a combination of
cardio-metabolic risk determinants, including central obesity,
insulin resistance, glucose intolerance,”  and other factors,
which is increasing globally.  

The disease is notable for the “apple shaped” body of those
afflicted, as weight gathers around the waist.

Update:

8.
Insomnia. Insomnia can cause weight gain.  Although
scientists sometimes adopt different definitions of insomnia, the
condition often is
defined as the chronic inability to fall asleep,
or the inability to stay asleep once you do fall asleep or waking
up too early in the morning.  

About 20% of adults suffer from insomnia in Western countries
and in Japan, according to a 2000 study from the National
Institutes of mental Health in Ichikawa-city, Chiba, Japan.

Several studies have linked insomnia to weight gain. One such
study was conducted in 2007 by Dr. Sanjay Patel and Dr. Frank
Hu from Case Western University and Harvard University. After
examining 36 other studies on the subject, they were able to
conclude firmly that "
Short sleep duration appears independently associated with
weight gain".  Here are some
tips to improve your ability to get
a sound night's sleep.
