Exercise is Medicine Testimonials

Irene Carpenter

Referred for Heart Failure

Irene Carpenter

"My symptoms have improved dramatically. My blood pressure is down, BMI is down, body fat is down, and I’ve lost 24 pounds. I can walk a mile on the treadmill in less than 20 minutes, whereas in January I could only walk slowly for a total of 5 minutes before needing to stop. My strength, balance and flexibility measurements have increased dramatically and I rarely need to use my cane to walk anymore. My sleep patterns are much better and my cpap has been lowered accordingly. My emotional well-being is much-improved and I am enjoying activities with family and friends again."
