Low bmi also put you at increased risk bone loss. Why not eat healthy? Do you have an eating disorder? There are great therapists if that is the case, see one, get some help. ...Read more

36 M got clean lipids and echo stress in Jan. No smoke no fam his 22.3 BMI, 120/80 BP low exercise Scared of getting heart attack. Should I be worried?

No: Exercise daily. Eat healthy. And you should be fine. Couple words on what eating healthy means... Eating chicken and simply avoiding red meat and fried foods does not equal healthy eating. Your plate should be at least half plant food every time you sit and eat. Plenty of real food. Fruits vegetables nuts seeds and minimize animal foods, sugar and flour to heart attack proof your self. ...Read more

Dull achy pain RUQ- abdom US nml, CBC,CMP,HIDA,upper EGD, all normal..Been 8mos. could this still be gallbladder? Scared of cancer. BMI 32

RUQ pain: Although a negative ultrasound and HIDA scan would tend to make gallbladder disease less likely, it is still not impossible. I am not hearing anything that would suggest cancer.
