I have low cholesterol from a blood test also wet microscope blood test showed my red blood cells do not move at all, most clumped together or deformed, so also dehydrated, white blood cells deformed, anemia and intolerant to many foods. I was at the hospital a few weeks before & also other blood tests at a clinic before that confirmed this. Microscope tests also showed blood clots that I was aware of. I am now on a higher fat, higher protein diet as it showed I do not have enough protein as well.

I have chronic kidney disease and low blood pressure & blood clots in both lungs for 3 years..I am 54 years old. I am on the Fall Challenge ,Firecrackers Team,on P.S.T. I have passed my 5% weight loss goal.My exercise plan is 2400 minutes a month.I do walking, ride the bike at the gym 65 minutes, 3 times a week & go ice skating for 90 minutes 2 times a week for people over 50. My name is Linda.

I had an eye doctor tell me that he could see the cholesterol buildup in my eyes. That freaked me out! Somehow that seems more real than the doctor giving me the results of a blood test.

Yes, I knew a little about this. My eye doctor has been telling me for years how he can see my high blood pressure affecting my vision when he does my eye exam. another important reason to exercise and keep it down! Eye health responds better to diet and exercise than to medication. Thanks for the reminder.

Everyone has heard that the "eyes are windows to the soul" and know doctors can tell a lot about people's overall health by studying their eyes. Did you know this is true about your dental health and gut as well?

I had a rough day yesterday and talked my dentist out of not doing the big work we had planned for another 3 weeks and am challenging myself to improve my oral, gut, and eye health so my doctor (April 8) and dentist (April 15) notice and comment on how I look/my body behaves when I go to see them :-)

Interestingly enough, teeth and eyes kind of like the same things! An excellent dentist's site said that for good dental health one should eat more cheese, yogurt, plain nuts, peanut butter, fruits and veggies and, of course, lay off so much sugar :-)

So, I'm going to work from this list, get less sugar and fewer simple carbs for my teeth, more fiber (popcorn/whole grains (mentioned by dental site too, just watch the amount of sugar they add to the bread; you want unsweetened breads)) and water, and I'm going to keep my eyes out emoticon for extra beta carotene, which converts into Vitamin A, such as that in sweet potatoes, kale, spinach, and carrots.
