BP

Saturday, March 15, 2008

I got the results of my blood work, EKG and stress test yesterday and - yep - I have low blood pressure. I knew that. Not much to do about it either, but at least it's good to know that it isn't anything more serious. I've always tended to low BP, but it hasn't usually been as problematic as it has the past few weeks. Maybe the stress of two trips to the US, and getting over two bouts of jet lag, together with the crazy ups and downs of the weather here this spring, are behind the persisting dizziness. I have some meds to take for 10 days, otherwise I just need to be sure to get my water in, get enough sleep and eat right. I know HOw to do that! Just gotta DO it!

But hey, at least the blood tests showed that my cholesterol levels are down even more - the doctor's diagnosis of high cholesterol was one big reason why I commited to losing weight and exercising. What a difference a year of Sparking makes!

Which reminds me, it's just one month till my one-year "Sparkiversary." Time to get ready to celebrate!

    Yay! They say no news is good news so that sounds really good... just take it easy and don't over-exert yourself. Glad you are well after all!
