No: quit tobacco. That would be the best thing you could do for yourself to mitigate your risk of heart, vascular and lung disease. Ofcourse, continue your exercise regimen as that is likely helping your HDL. Avoid saturated fats to bring your LDL lower. Additionally, lifetime risk of heart disease depends on family history. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

RDW - CV 15.7?
You're not numbers: The only "tip" I can share is that lab values mean nothing in isolation. With your unusually low MCV, the concern is one of the thalassemia minor variants -- usually a non-problem but something you and any possible present or future wife need to know about. A relatively but not dangerous Hct might be addressed. Basically, in any society you have a duty to have your physician explain particulars. ...Read more

Relax: Many healthy people have a few spiders. I've had one on my thumb pad since I was a kid. Life's difficult enough without reading all about nonspecific stuff and getting worried. Be thankful for good health. Folks who naturally tend to worry often do remarkably well when they start up an intense fitness program. Sound like a plan? Best wishes. ...Read more

Calories burned, is it all voodoo? HR monitor, Elliptical, and online calculators differ by up to 50%. Is one more accurate? I'm 250 lbs, FFM 180 lbs

However, it is what you put in your body that is going to make the biggest difference to your fitness goals. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
