> Thanks Jay. I just had my annual physical and I failed all three of the metabolic panel. I don't have metabolic syndrome yet, but am on my way, hence the urgency. Anyway, I appreciate the re-assurance; it will give me an added incentive to work out.

Exactly -- it is an added incentive. I'm sorry you failed the panel -- although to what extent is always the case on the ranges. But that's technical. If you feel the need to do so and your insurance provides it, maybe your GP can send you to an endocrinologist to further explore any options and tests.

The good news if you just started to have lipid issues is that you may have several years before it can develop into a worse scenario -- and in those times, yes, it is an incentive and perfectly feasible.

You don't have to lose all 70 pounds I think -- just some of it to pass another panel test and feel better about yourself, if your insurance affords or you are concerned, I think some doctors would think you should monitor that at a higher rate. But that's up to your GP or a endo.

-- best wishes
