At 75 with bad kidneys, heart and system shutting down, my dad finally tested positive for diabetes; was clean before then. Have an uncle who lost both legs (assume diabetes, but don't know), and was 300ish# XXXXX that.
As the question stated, I'm 6'1" 215#. Do you think I'm overweight?
20mg Lovastatin daily.
No other significant medical issues.

Good wake up call!
Caffeinated soda & coffee under 10/month.
Tea (never sugar) maybe 5/week, more when it's cold. I've heard much about health benefits of tea; any concerns about this level of caffeine consumption?
