I’m not sure about you but as time passes what we write and share on social media becomes ever more sensitive. Of course this has been partly associated with what has happened over comments about parts of society. This is a case history about a patient, her partner and a podiatrist writing about her experience. But then another podiatrist takes a different view.

The theme of racial attitudes is discussed with Dr Jill Halstead-Rastrick for Podiatric Reflective Practice after an interview by David Tollafield for Busypencilcase Reflective Communications.

This is the last August article in my series ‘My Fitness Diaries’. It reflects on what has been published with a change in direction to my keep fit plans. I have achieved a baseline fitness, reduced my weight by about 1.5Kg and now look to use the gym more effectively to meet those common aims – loss of weight, muscle stability and cardiac fitness or stamina.

The idea of having knowledge about how your body is made up of muscle and fat seems appealing. It is easy to pretend I am young, fit and slinky when my bio data suggests I cannot abuse my body. In this article I look at some equipment for analysing our fat and segmental values and explain what these all are about. How the reliable the equipment can be.

My gym series was taking me where the pen fell and what activity I was doing. My aim was to lose weight, improve my heart and blood pressure, feel fit and live forever!

I’m keen in human movement as a podiatrist and like to discuss a wide range of health, not just feet.
