Another Good Check Up


Thursday, May 16, 2013

Yesterday I met with my new doctor and got the results of lab work. Overall cholesterol was 169 -- not bad, especially when it had been 240 when I was heavy. The best news was the HDL. It had been very low and my previous doctor was glad to see it up to 55 last year. Well, now it is 65, which I understand is just about optimal. I have a strong family history of high cholesterol and heart disease, so these are important numbers for me. Thanks to SparkPeople and all my SparkFriends for giving me the information and support I need to improve my health!!
