Patient discussion about aerobe

Q. I feel comfortable with a gym and sports and I don’t like aerobics. Which one is good? I am 22 years old and my dad is diabetic. He is having very severe diabetes. He takes insulin injection ever day. He says that I must keep an active and healthy lifestyle and this will keep me fit. If I have any chances of diabetes it will be reduced. He tells me to play every day and do aerobics and to carry this till my old age. But I feel comfortable with a gym and sports and I don’t like aerobics. Which one is good?

A. Gym is to make your muscles to have good endurance. But sports keep you active and give you complete body fitness. Aerobics is good for your heart, muscles and lungs. What I would say is that if you have time you can do both aerobic and gym. Keep playing throughout your life. This will keep you fit and it reduces the occurrence of diabetes as well.

Q. Regular participation in aerobic exercise lowers an individual's risk of developing cancer? I am a regular participant of aerobic, so the regular participation in aerobic exercise lowers an individual's risk of developing cancer?

A. You have some reason to be happy. Research suggests that exercise often modifies some of the risk factors associated with certain kinds of cancer. Obesity has been linked to cancer of the breast and the female reproductive system. Regular exercise has been shown to help promote weight loss. Several studies have also found that men who worked at sedentary jobs for most of their lives had a greater incidence of colon cancer than those in more active jobs. Exercise will not compensate the effects of a high-fat diet or smoking. Still it can contribute, even indirectly, to a reduced risk of cancer. As such, exercising regularly is recommended by the ACS [American Cancer Society] as an integral part of its cancer prevention program.

Q. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions regarding aerobic exercise post DVT and/or PE?

A. drink a lot of water and be aware. if you take your meds i think there shouldn't be a problem, but i strongly recommend asking your physician about it. he knows you and the problem and can give you a much much better answer.
