She broke her wrist a few months ago and is here to check on the progress and to undergo some additional tests. Ms. Ho is a relatively healthy woman who likes to swim, but admits that she hasn’t been exercising like she used to. She eats lots of vegetables and seafood, avoids most dairy products, seldom drinks, and she smokes (she’s been trying to quit for years). She went through menopause at the age of 51. Today she is feeling pretty good but has some lower back pain, and is concerned about her wrist because when her mother got older she suffered from two broken hips.BMI (5’0″, 88#s) 17.2B/P 100/66
