@denny2019 Hi Denny, and welcome to Connect.
You have some great ideas here from @retiredteacher, @dorisena and @rosemarya — thanks for that link, Rosemary.
I have nothing to add in the diet area but I think you might want to increase your exercise. I generally exercise three times a week in the water — a 45 minute water aerobics class followed by another 45 minutes of water jogging. On three other days, I go to the gym at my health club and start with either the treadmill or elliptical and then do some of the weight equipment. I spend at least an hour in the gym. Recently I have been out of commission due to a femur fracture but I am now getting back to it. When I don't get to my health club I ride my recumbent bike at home for somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes. I try to go at least 7 miles.
The recumbent bike is a very good exercise if you have some resistance and spend enough time on it, plus you can watch TV while doing it to distract yourself from the exercise. Sometimes I end up going longer than intended because I want to see the end of a TV show!
I do not follow any specific diet but if I did I think I would check out the Mediterranean diet because it's supposed to be heart friendly too.

@contentandwell I dropped the ball on this post; thanks for picking up the pieces to you and @rosemarya for adding what I omitted. Of course since I no longer have an exercise routine, I didn't say that exercise is a part of the program: food and exercise, and I probably forgot something else. I have been distracted without a dr. and things seem wrong, but I hope to figure out a way to get right again. I know my feet will not be well again, so that remains a problem. I have a friend who takes turmeric; she told me I should try it and see. I wonder if that would help at all. I don't have a dr. to ask. So I probably should not post any more answers until I can get myself straight again.
I am so grateful to have other Mentor cyber friends who pick up the slack.
Thank you so much.
