IDF: Schalit in reasonable health but limping, skinny, pale

The IDF said on Tuesday that even though Gilad Schalit was in reasonably good health, there were a few issues that caused concern including his pale skin and the fact that he was limping.
The IDF doctors noted that he was very pale which indicates that he was not exposed to sunlight during his captivity. They also noted that he was much skinnier than when he was captured which suggests that he was malnourished.
The IDF medical team also noted that Schalit was limping and suspected that he had sustained the injury when he was captured in 2006.
