After an exam, electrocardiogram and sonogram, the cardiolgist said that he did not find anything to be terribly concerned about! He said that yes, I had a bit of blockage of the aortic valve, but not that bad and said there was no need to do anything other than continue to live healthily and come back to see him again in 6 months! Well hot diggety damn! Now, if I can get my AIC levels down below pre-diabetic and slowly but surely build up my leg strength and lessen the diabetic peripheral neuropathy nerve damage and pain, I will be well on the road to being a lean, mean love machine again. :) And hey, my healthy fats ketogenic type diet has not fattened me up in the least - just the opposite. I am now 6'1" and 180 pounds.
