4 Answers | Asked by Jessica Cline on May 17, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 17, 2013

Have you ever heard of getting dizzy from lifting weights?

12 Answers | Asked by Jennifer Hallinan on May 15, 2013

6 Answers | Asked by Lindsey Wold on May 13, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 13, 2013

Hi Lindsey, I assume that the doctor has cleared her to exercise, both on grounds of RA AND her diabetes. If it was my client, I would impress weight loss as a top priority and would recommend that she see a dietitian to assist with it so that she will eat optimally to manage any problems with...
