Brief Answer: regular exercise like walking, jogging. Detailed Answer: Hello dear XXXXX. There is no need to join gym for this. Simple exercise like daily morning walking, jogging and cycling can be enough but should be done at regular interval. For your age your height and weight seems within normal range. No there is no relationship between HDL levels and body shaking or loss of balance. Hope I answered your query. Regards.
