  • Mets

    No, this is not a baseball question. I recently got copies of all my echos for the last 10 years and on the exercise echo's they refer to METS levels. Does anyone know what they are and what are considered appropriate levels? I notice my levels are decreasing over the years but don't know whaaat that means.

    Mets is a measure of metabolic expenditure calculated with various factors including heart rate, body wt, duration and intensity of exercise.

    Ask your doctor what he thinks would be right for you. Hope this helps a little. Linda
