    With modern and accessible healthcare, winning is easier now.

    Read an article that life expectatency of Malaysian increases from 59 (1960) to 68 (1980) and 74 (2012).

    Long life might not be good news if one is not healthy and can't afford to maintain a decent living...

    Regarding heart disease, I know of someone who took care of this with exercise.
    My former boss's brothers all died of heart attacks in their 50's and 60's.
    He knew he was at high risk due to his family history.
    He made himself a strict schedule whereby he would jog on a regular basis and he even manually mow his garden using a push-mower which has no motor. His small bungalow house had the shortest grass because he would never miss his timetable to mow the lawn. He also had a strict diet. In the end, he passed away in his 80's, outliving his siblings by at least 20 years!

    Nowadays, with the convenience of internet, medical practitioner seems like a redundant profession... !!

    It is quite worrying when people simply dish out health advice based on their so-called “success story". Although exercise is good for health, consult a cardiologist to know more about your heart conditions before engaging any rigorous exercise. Many died of heart attack during exercise due to inherited heart problem.

    One has to gather reliable data about own health before an informed decision can be made, not based on hearsay.

    Thank you!!

    Chang, good thing i hardly sit around all day and i do still have my walks although not as much as before i moved house. I don't walk alone so i need to wait for hubby to be in the right work schedule (which changes every week), then we walk together. Plus i don't like walking around the housing area at night or evening unless i really cannot tahan after not having a good walk after some time. I like walking in the mornings only. Air still fresh, birds chirping around, still nice and cool... ahhhh... bliss.... then i can huff and puff up the hill and hopefully keep my average of 15mins per mile. My bp seems to be ok so far.. 105/75 at most. That said, my late dad, had a massive heart attack while playing golf with his doctor friend, who tried to revive him, unfortunately didnt work. That is what worries me most. Heart disease and strokes.
    Hubby is still healthy and very active , not on any medications like the typical american of his age at 66. He believes in keeping active so he makes sure i get some strenuous walks in and try to avoid having to be on meds. I used to average 49kgs while still living in Msia but now, after being in the US for 9 years, up by a few kgs to 53. Aieee....
    But!!! I shall keep being active and force myself to exercise more. (ugh)

    Opulent... yes, long life is no fun when not in good health. No one likes being bedridden for years and having to wait for people to help take care all the time.
    Insecurity is unattractive. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.

    Back to gout .........which goes quack quack quack.

    Medications are the most proven, effective way to treat gout symptoms. However, making certain lifestyle changes also may helpful

    Limiting alcoholic beverages and drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. Instead, drink plenty of nonalcoholic beverages, especially water.
    Limit intake of foods high in purines, such as red meat, organ meats and seafood especially crabs with egg roe. Older Chinese fo;ks believe to abstain from quack quack duck.
    Exercising regularly and losing weight. Keeping your body at a healthy weight reduces your risk of gout.

    American College of Rheumatology (ACR) published guidelines on the treatment and prophylaxis of acute gouty arthritis and the management of hyperuricemia. https://www.rheumatology.org/Portals...t_2_ACR-12.pdf

    Those heart patients on diuretics drugs seems to have increase uric acid ...... and males seems to suffer gout.

    Cardiologist said I can do this 3 to 5 times a week but I do twice a week, max is three times a week. I roughly burn around 900 calories per week.

    My control parameter is calories. I make sure I burn at least 250 but not more than 350 calories each time. I set the speed at 8.0 m/s and timer starts from 40 minutes. Normally, once i burn more than 250 calories, running time is about 30 minutes and running distance is more than 3.5km (If you drive from subang parade to Ocbc taipan, the driving distance is 3.4km )

    Jan, if your heart can take this exercis, I strongly recommend you to do this consistently. ..



    This is cooling down stage, speed is just 3 m/s. Calories burned is 281, running distance 3.9km and time remain is 3.3 minutes..

    Oops, the unit for speed of this machine is km/h, not m/s...

    So, my running speed is set at 8.0 km/h which is about 2.2 m/s

    Yes...

    You enlarge the photo.. you can see the unit for speed is km/h or mile/h. Since I enter km as the unit for distance when I start the program, the speed should be in km/h.

    Also, the running distance shown is 3.9km after I have run for about 36 minutes. If you extrapolate to 1 hour, the distance is 8km.

    I took 3 m/s as 3 metres per second or near 11km/hr which is too fast for my legs.

    They still use miles/hr??

    This is a Taiwan made machine. I think they sell to US, so miles is still used.

    I used to jog fast but I slow down a lot now, I need to take care of my knees and joints.

    I am very comfortable with this routine which I run around 10km per week and burn away around 900 calories a week.

    Jan, you have been suffering for the last 10 days or more and I can't imagine the pain you have to go through. Are you still moving around on your feet? If you want to try my remedy, let me know. I have a big bottle of Advil containing 360 tablets which was bought in US and 6 sachets of URAL effervescent granules left. I can pass you both to try. If the URAL runs out, you can get a box of 28 sachets at RM 35 at Guardian or Caring.

    Dosage: 1-2 tablets of Advil 3 times a day and 1-2 sachet (4gm) of URAL 4 times a day.
