    but, like i said, 3 months from now, i will know exactly one way or the other without endagering myself.

    My initial reaction is the doctor's advice to stay away from anaerobic strength endurance activity has more to do with hypoglycemia than anything else. There are some simple ways to train around it without resorting to something as ghey has aerobic power walking. But, since this is weighing on you so much, at this point you really should consult with a hematologist and also an endocrinologist.

    *sigh*

    Maybe it's because I'm not thinking clearly, but I'm not seeing the connection between fasting to test for diabetes and seeing a hematologist for thalassemia treatment options and risk assessment (beyond the fact that they're both good ideas). Am I misunderstanding something?

    the blood taken today is going to a hemotology lab. the idea i got was that a "treatment" wasn't needed now. just limit activities. but that will be addressed this weekend. since my mother is hypoglycemic and my father has adult onset diabetes, my doc is more worried about that right now.

    however, i'm not incredably worried about diabeties. i know it's serious and nothing to take lightly. but, i have known athletes of all calibers that were diabetic. it just needs to be known for sure and handled properly.

    the more i think about it all, the less worried i am. if it wasn't thalassemia slowing me down, something else would be soon enough. and i'm sure that i can keep doing SOMETHING with ma over the next decade.

    Two related problems with this:
    1) Getting bloodwork done will presumably confirm/reject the diagnosis. It is not a substitute for actually consulting with an expert to interpret said diagnosis (options and risks).
    2) It appears that limiting your activities will limit the effectiveness of your martial arts training. I'm not going to insult you for choosing to curtail your training rather than pursuing alternatives that would allow you to train more effectively. It's your health and your call. I do, however, think you should at least investigate the alternatives so you can make an informed decision.

    agreed, and i will see a specialist later. right now, treatment isn't needed but, if i'm diabetic/pre-diabetic or hypoglycemic, then that needs to be addressed first.

    so, everything in due time. i feel a lot better about everything now that i'm seeing ringside doc for what he was. genuinly concerned but unable to separate people getting punchy from to many pro/am fights and a tae kwon dork who has thalessimia.
