Impaired fasting glu: A fasting glu over 100 is not normal, but not diabetes. It would be called “impaired fasting glucose”. Diabetes is 126 or higher. Impaired glucose tolerance is another term based on a glucose tolerance test. In both of these impaired conditions, there is a high chance of progressing to diabetes. Often there is a family history, obesity, hypertension, and abnormal lipids. Time to get healthy. ...Read more

Heart rate: If your son is not a trained athlete and has a heart rate of 35bpm it should be verified that his rhythm is actually normal and that it behaves normally with exercise.

Diagnose w/ sesamoiditis (clean xray-dec). Springboard diver, & doing PT but pain much worse. Now, ankle/ mid-foot (top) stiffness/discomfort. Why?
Dizzy/off balance/lightheaded/ disoriented when standing/ walking. I drink ~70fl oz. A day. I don't take any meds. Hits randomly in short waves.
Dizzy: at 17 is usually a vasovagal phenomenon treatable by eating a handful of pretzels daily or drinking a Gatorade quart daily. Watch food intake to assure stable blood sugars. Ask family members about similar experiences and causes. If no better get pulse and BP taken lying down and standing as well as your blood sugar levels by your doctor ...Read more
New sudden sharp pains @ left knee & right ankle random w/ walking. Stops w/i seconds. Stumbled on treadmill week before, didn't seem serious. Aging?
Started exercising. .5 mile walk, .25 mile run. Enough to create cortisol? Had increased PVCs (benign) afterwards. Looking for correlation.
PVC: If the PVCs haven't been worked up... Suggest it should be checked. PVCs occur in certain zones of your heart rate. Do a holter monitor and exercise with it, if not get a HR monitor for exercise. If after work up you don't have any suspicion of blocked arteries... Keep exercising and have fun getting fit. :) ...Read more

Intense ankle pain (front & lateral) prohibits climbing stairs, pivoting, running. No injury, full ROM w/o weight on it. What did/should I do? Thanks!
Ortho Eval needed: Seek evaluation by your orthopaedic surgeon. Along with a thorough examination of your ankle, X-rays would likely be obtained to assess for a potential loose body of osteophyte that may make stair climbing painful. Instability or ankle looseness would also be assessed as the anterior and lateral aspect of the ankle is where the main stabilizing ligaments are located. ...Read more

Is walking 3.0 mph on my treadmill considered a brisk walk because I hate jogging I been doing brisk walk of 3.0 mph 30-40 min a day I am 6 foot 1?
Feet don't fail me.: As a general rule, the rate of 3.0 mph is considered a brisk walk and you are to be congratulated on your persistence. You might want to increase the speed to 4.0 mph in time as you will undoubtedly become accustomed to the slower rate and increasing the speed will sustain you level of fitness. ...Read more

More data: There isn't enough data, even with the tests you've reported, to make a diagnosis. That said, I'll bet if you supplement you diet with more salt - sodium chloride - you'll raise your BP and feel better. And it doesn't cost anything. Simply salt your food liberally (to taste) at every meal, drink plenty of liquids (not diuretic drinks like coffee or tea), and see if this helps. ...Read more
