3.41 Talk to Your Doctor
While it is quite rare for a doctor to tell a patient they shouldn’t exercise, everyone’s personal medical situation is different. Especially if you have heart disease, make sure your doctor knows that you are interested in starting an exercise program. While HeartStrong.com will discuss general rules for Exercising With Heart Disease and When Not To Exercise, still talk with your doctor about your situation.
Your doctor may give you some helpful advice about how to stay physically active with your specific medical problems and can explain to you what signs or symptoms to look out for in case problems were to arise.
