I have a really bad family medical history, with records of heart related problems, diabetics, and stroke. Almost as bad as it can get. :-( Our family is really careful with our food intake now. Do you also have a bad family medical history? How bad or good is yours? Thanks in advance for sharing.

my family has bad medical history too. both from my father and mother's side have history of asthma. i'm just lucky that i didn't inherit the asthma. from my father's side, they also have high blood. i'm not really sure if high blood and cholesterol are in one's blood, but i think anyone with excessive eating habits can acquire high blood, right?

Yeah, I think so. Keeping a healthy diet and exercise regime helps I guess. :-)

Hello my dear fineexistence Ji, With regatrds to my mother, whom I only remeber, she never had any health problem and passed away walking hale and hearty, I do not remember much about my father, as I hardly remmebr him, as he passed away, when I might be 3-4 yrs. My both brothers (One elder and one younger) do not have any notable haelth problems even after retirements, my eldest sister, who is above 75, i sdoing all her jobs and hale and hearty. So I do not know, from where I got RA,DM2,HTN,UTI. Our all three children 37,35,33 yrs are hale and hearty except that they are marinally over-weight. It is all due to our life style.may God bless you and have a great time.
