Consult a doctor or other health care professional for diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions and before starting any exercise program or diet plan.

Regular exercise can help you control your weight, reduce your risk of heart disease, and strengthen your bones and muscles. But if you haven't exercised for some time and you have health concerns, you may want to talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise routine.
When to check with your doctor
Although moderate physical activity, such as brisk walking, is safe for most people, health experts suggest that you talk to your doctor before you start an exercise program if any of the following apply:
· You have heart disease.
· You have asthma or lung disease.
· You have diabetes, or liver or kidney disease.
· You have arthritis.
You should also check with your doctor if you have symptoms suggestive of heart, lung or other serious disease, such as:
· Pain or discomfort in your chest, neck, jaw or arms during physical activity
· Dizziness or loss of consciousness
· Shortness of breath with mild exertion or at rest, or when lying down or going to bed
· Ankle swelling, especially at night
· A heart murmur or a rapid or pronounced heartbeat
· Muscle pain when walking upstairs or up a hill that goes away when you rest
Finally, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends that you see your doctor before engaging in vigorous exercise if two or more of the following apply:
· You're a man older than age 45 or a woman older than age 55.
· You have a family history of heart disease before age 55.
· You smoke or you quit smoking in the past six months.
· You haven't exercised for three months or more.
· You're overweight or obese.
· You have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
· You have impaired glucose tolerance, also called pre-diabetes.
