I've just been diagnosed with bilateral vestibulopathy (which I've actually had for about 4 years now; same time as my CFRD diagnosis), and I have found exercising very difficult. I can do stationary&nbsp;exercises, like weight lifting, etc., but not any running or swimming without feeling extremely dizzy,&nbsp;nauseous&nbsp;and sick. This has been very frustrating, and I just have basically stopped exercising altogether. I used to play soccer all the time, from when I was 4 until I was 15 (I'm 18 now).&nbsp;<div><br></div><div>I was just wondering if anyone has any tips for me to get back into shape? I'm also going into my first year of college, so that's freaking me out a bit too! Should I just keep with weight lifting and whatnot?&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div>Thanks for your help!</div>

lift weights, high protein diet, (don't water it down too much with the protein shakes, only use those once you've hit your protein intake for the day-- if trying to bulk get at least 2 grams of protein per lb of body weight)
<br>
<br>and repeat. hit the gym 4-5 times a week, targeting one body part per day, and stack up on your vitamins to help with absorption.
<br>
<br>come back in 3 months and thank me . <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">
