What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

What is the safe maximum heart rate during exercise for a 58 year old woman with BMI 36.8?

Interesting question: In theory 220- age is maximum heart rate, but I have seen some people exceed this formula, the real question is target heart rate- probably 60-70% of this according to exercise physiology - about 112 for you. If you run a bit higher comfortably, don't worry. As you excercise more your heart rate may drop as you get more fit. Still, you don't have to go that hard to get benefits. Be well! ...Read more

What weight & BMI should I be at 5'9 & 28 year old female?

BMI: Bmi is calculated weight to height. Ideal and high risk are standardized for adult ideal is18.5 to 25, 25 to 30 is overweight and 30 plus is considered obese. These are not generally age dependent. Another way to determine ideal weight for a female is 100 pounds for 5 foot and 5 pounds per inch for every inch over 5 foot. There are allowances for large and small bone. Hope this helped. ...Read more

My EKG showed low voltage in the limb leads. My doctor wasnt concerned. Im 38 year old female BMI 19.5 I had a previousnormal EKG should I be worrie?

My EKG showed low voltage in the limb leads. My doctor wasnt concerned. Im 38 year old female BMI 19.5   I had a previousnormal EKG should I be worrie?

NO: Low voltage on an EKG usually is caused by placement of the leads. This usually does happen from the limb leads because they are placed farther than the precordial leads. Also, they can be placed at different locations. For example more toward your ankle on one EKG versus closer or at your knee on another. ...Read more

I am a 16 year old female. I am very active and i want to calculate my BMI but for a highly active teenager. Height: 5.6" weight: 155 age: 16 years ol?

Fair: Your bmi is 25 kg/m2 and considered slightly overweight. However it is more important to measure the waist line size which should be much less than 35 inch in a female of your age. Do note that if you are somewhat muscular, the bmi may well be normal. ...Read more

I am an 18-year-old female but my blood pressure is always 92/57-60. My BMI is 24.2. It is naturally occurring (no meds). Is it dangerous?

I am an 18-year-old female but my blood pressure is always 92/57-60. My BMI is 24.2. It is naturally occurring (no meds). Is it dangerous?

Low BP?: 18 F BMI 24.2 worries about BP 92/57. No worries. In general the lower your BP and BMI the longer you will live and the less time you will spend during your later years living with the consequences of higher BP: stroke, heart attach, heart failure, kidney failure and aortic aneurysm. Keep up the good work The only low BP to worry about is if you faint when it gets low for you. ...Read more

20 year old female BMI 21, did GTT and it reached 305 in minute 70 and 280 in minute 90, no family history of DM, should I be worried?

20 year old female BMI 21, did GTT and it reached 305 in minute 70 and 280 in minute 90, no family history of DM, should I be worried?

Abnormal OGTT: Hi. Those results are abnormal, although there are no standard diagnostic criteria for 70 and 90 minutes. I trust they did a 120 minute for which there ARE diagnostic criteria. You're young, thin, & have no family history of type 2. You're probably in the process of developing type 1. What symptoms led your doc to do the OGTT? Have you lost weight? Are you peeing all night long? Follow up with doc ...Read more
