Actually, that's how I do it every morning, taking a jog (usually 30 mins to 1 hr) before breakfast. On this particularity morning the run was as normal (a bit slower, actually), and for about 20 minutes. It was approximately 3 hours before the test. (Run ended at 6:45, test took place around 10am.) Gymdandee I had read that study as well, but what ...

Hi, I just recently had a fasting blood test. That morning, about 3 hours before the test, I engaged in a 25 minute jog ( 5.5mph, as I do nearly every morning). Unfortunately, no one had informed me that I should abstain from exercise prior to bloodwork like this. So I'm wondering, how would exercise affect my results? Of particular (though not exc...

Thanks. My initial thought was actually overexertion, but after doing some inquisitive searches online, I kept coming up with "stable angina", and it being a sign of silent cardiovascular disease, particularly when it appears after exercise, and even more so when the weather gets colder. Needless to say, I've made the doc appointment. A fol...

Today, I decided to run 1.25 miles, 1/4 of which was through rough terrain. (Dropped off my car at a local shop then literally ran back home.) That first 1/4 was run at a pretty quick clip for me--definitely faster than my usual runs--in much rougher terrain than I'm used to, but the rest was at a normal pace (between 5 and 6 mph) on pavement. During the...

Thank you for answering. Sorry if I was not clear. Today's doctor did not address the LPFB issue encountered prior to the Treadmill Stress Test, which was the question at hand. *I* was the one who asked whether it might have been a lead issue. *I* was the one who pointed it out and said, "This looks nothing like the others. He said, "Ma...

Stats: - 31 (almost 32) - male - 6'0 - 221lbs. I have a Complete RBBB, diagnosed for the first time about 10 months ago. At that time I had an EKG plus an ECG, plus a pulmonary function test. (PFT.) The PFT showed some minor abnormalities, but nothing indicating problems, at least not according to my doctor. (I can post those results if necessar...

You will need to talk to your doctor about this. Pain after GB surgery could be from various things. It could be standard pain, or it could be bile leaking, or a messed up clip, or hypersensitivity, or issues with pain killers or... you get the drift. Go to a doctor.

Approximately 2 years ago I had my gallbladder removed. Things were great for a time, but over the past couple of years many of the recurring symptoms (mild pain after eating which radiates to the back, burning sensation in my upper abdomen) have returned. My doctor just recently ordered an MRCP to check for the cause of what's seemingly my PCS. Needles...

Probably not. Low cholesterol, by itself, is not indicative of anything. A lot of the studies which say low cholesterol is a risk factor don't take into consideration incubation period. ----------------[START ARTICLE]---------------- From Reuters, in the 2009 article "Low cholesterol may be sign of undiagnosed cancer" Low total cholester...
