Exercise: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, if your doctor clears you, start aerobic exercise and gradually increase time and intensity. You may repeat the test in 6 months. Wish you good health!
