my daughter is 12 and was dia by a Dr at Charleston University. I was dia in 1989 and my wife has Lupus and FMS. The Dr said that they try to get the kids into exercise program since they respond much better then adults. It started just walking on a treadmill and working up. The pcp all said the same thing that it was her weight but with both parents having FMS he wanted a specialist to dia her. There is still nothing that can be done. We try not too make a big deal about it and try to incur age her to be more active.View Thread
What I hate is, I am a guy that is 6'4" 300 lbs and everyone thinks you look fine and should be able to do any thing, I wish. Its pretty bad when you go to the store for milk, you go to one further away just because they have the milk case closer to the front of the store since it hurts so bad to walk to the back since every step cause another pain some where.
