Good Dr visit

Friday, June 28, 2013

Yesterday afternoon I had my annual wellness visit at the Dr. office. It went really well.

Overall since last May I have lost 17 pounds, my blood pressure was 112/88, my thyroid was in the right range so no change to that medication. Everything else was great. The only letdown for me is that my HDL (the good cholesterol) actually declined from 32 to 31. It's been low for the last few years we've been measuring. The offset is that the LDL is 88.

The best part - on my take home sheet they wrote "You are very healthy!"

Enjoy your weekend! If the weather holds, I'm going to try and go over to the pick-your-own-strawberry fields and see if Miss G and I can gather up enough to make a big batch of strawberry jam.

    Hmmm strawberry jam...sounds delicious....

Great news from the Doc.....congrats....

Do you like avocados? I ask because adding them to your diet might just kick up that good cholesterol level...just a thought :)

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend...
