Hi doctor,

I am a 25 year old male. My weight is 100 kg and height is 5'5". My current medications are as follows. Atorvastatin 10 mg on alternate days for hyperlipidemia, Allopurinol 100 mg three times a day for hyperuricemia and LABA plus steroid inhaler for asthma. Today, my BP is 139/98 mmHg on routine measurement. I am thinking to join a gym this week. Please suggest me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You are overweight. You have to reduce your weight to around 65 kg to live a healthy life.
  • Your lipid status and blood pressure may become normal, once you shed those extra kilos.
  • Going to the gym is a good initiative and I suggest you not to lift weights until you become 90 kg.
  • I suggest you to walk daily for 40 minutes quickly like 6 km per hour after one or two months convert it into jogging. Within two months you must be doing two hours of this every day.
  • After reducing 10 kg, you do one hour jogging and one hour gym activity. And never stop your dieting and exercise ever in your life. It will lead to getting the same weight again.
