3 doctors agree
In brief: Many. Family Hx 1st.
First, most have an apple build, ie.
Carry weight on the torso, rather than buttocks and extremities. Family hx of hbp, cholesterol problems, diabetes 2, and ASHD or mi, especially if strong. I obtain fasting lipids, insulin, hgba1c, and in females, free and total testosterone. The latter, since pcos is common. A lipid profile that suggests Insulin resistance is high triglycerides and low hdl.
