Doctor says I'm healthy as my horses!

Friday, June 07, 2013

I had my first physical at the Doctors in years and just as I told my whole family, I'm healthy as my horses!

First of all family history has heart problems, diabetes, thyroid issues and history of stroke and heart attack, etc... I'm already known to be Vitamin D deficient with my last reading being a 17 up from a low of 10! AND I forgot I had Labs that morning so I had chugged down my 2 normal cups of coffee with creamer and sugar stopping only 15 minutes before the appointment when my alarm went off to remind me to get there so Doctor said my sugars are probably too low actually (since I've been hypoglycemic for 15 years that's not a shocker!)

Height - 5'5"
Weight - 182 :(
Heart rate - 68
Blood Pressure - 110/68
Cholesterol - can't remember but it was well under 200
HDL - 50
LDL - 85
Sugar - 105
Thyroid - normal
Vitamin D - 18 (should be around 25)

Nothing abnormal during my exams or anything else :)

    @Evie4now - Doctor said with what I had drank and when that my sugars, although showing slightly high, should have been much higher, which having been diagnosed as Hypoglycemic over 15 years ago would be expected :)

  Good job. Even tho your sugars came in high, i think the sugar and cream in your coffee probably did that. So now you are cleared to do the exercises. Make the most of it.
