Slightly High Cholesterol?

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

DH, DD and I went for blood work on Saturday. The dr. was concerned that I possibly had a thyroid problem due to always being tired. I didn't think so as that is just the way I am and I had been fighting a sinus infection for a month and a half. Dr. called, my cholesterol is slightly elevated at 220. The nurse didn't tell me what the other number was, just that I should start taking some flax seed. My DD's thyroid is slightly low, so she was given some medication. I need to lose weight, so now this really brings it home.

    I think that is also my cholesterol number(or at least was when I WAS eating healthy,now I am sure it is really bad emoticon ) . I lowered it a little back then by eating more salmon and more oatmeal. emoticon emoticon emoticon
