I told you on Wednesday that I figured my doctor’s visit would end up being bad. Well… I was wrong. When I went there yesterday, I had lost 6 lbs since my appointment six months ago and my blood pressure was 124/80 which is the lowest I ever remember seeing it. Wow… okay, well what about the levels?
Well, everything other than my triglycerides was normal and even those were just slightly over standard. The LDL was at 100 and the standard range they say is 99 or less. So, that’s not too bad, either. The doctor told me that being slightly over isn’t significant enough to warrant worry. That I should keep up my meds, what I’m eating but be mindful of the carb intake. Also, if I must have a cheeseburger, park in the farthest space away so I at least get some exercise.
All-in-all, I feel that it was a very good visit to the doc. So, I’m going to go enjoy stuff and I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
