I hope I am posting this in the right forum as my case seems to have more than one issue.
I am male Asian Indian descent living in USA recently turned 31, single. I have never taken alcohol in my life, never smoked, have been doing high, medium, low intensity weight training, cardio, yoga, core workouts regularly for 3 years. I mean I am doing very well health wise and usually have good energy levels. My food habits also include lot of whole grains, dairy, veggies and whatever is considered good. I have managed that part nicely too.
I have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes (102 after fasting) and BP as 134/84 and I also may have irregular heart beat (need to confirm this with a specialist). I do not understand how this can be the case at my age especially with living a very healthy lifestyle so far.
Others I know who are my age and smoke, drink, never worked out and have average food habits are just doing fine. My father is diabetic but that was after 45 and recently my mother was diagnosed with possible hypertension (although she is going through high stress for sometime now).
