Hello and happy new year everyone. My name is Christine, I live in Toronto, Ontario and have recently joined this group.
Well I have high cholestrol and high blood pressure. Under doctors care, on meds and was shocked when I had a stroke seven months ago. The stroke was actually caused by a blockage of my carotid artery. I know that high cholesterol and high blood pressure put me at risk for the stroke.
I have since had an endarterectomy, had the B/P meds changed and my cholesterol was 2.09 at my last check up.
In loving memory of Sally my guinea pig who passed on 28/01/08
