Today's reading seems to be better than any yet.....I've been keeping track at home and not sure what it all means....I know I've been board line in the past, but now it is sounding more serious, as of 10/21 appt. How concerned should I be?

Thanks for the suggestion to use the tracker. Completed my first day and I can see how this is going to be very useful.

I have had to go off my cholesterol meds due to my liver functions being elevated. I had been off crestor 10 mg for about 5 months, then I was on Niaspan 500 mg for about 4 months but doctor stopped that 1 week ago. That was awful stuff unless I took an asprin with it. My cholesterol was 264 and my LDL was 170 so it wasn't controling anyway. My HDL was up to 50 and my triglycerides were back to normal 142..

My cholesterol was up last month at the doctor's office. It has been stable on 10 mg of crestor for years now. She is doing a re-check in June to see where it is. I am really watching what I eat and hopefully it will be back down. The food log on SP will give you a cholesterol read for the day if you want to keep track. Good luck all!

Good Motivation Monday

How is everyone this morningÖare we all getting ready to watch our Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure Levels. Itís important that we keep track of them and work on getting them down. I spent a lot of time over the last few days educating myself on the ups and downs of both. Not that I didnít already know but over all I was very oblivious to exactly how bad they could affect me.

Itís like if it isnít in my back yard I donít really worry. I now know that is the most stupid way to look at my health issues. Bad health moves from yard to yard without too much warning. At least we are given a warning when it comes out CHOL and BP levels. It gives us a chance to fix the problem before it gets out of hand.

I was ok with taking my meds and just carrying on my normal routine, but now I want to get off the meds and work toward being healthier all the way around. So it seems like watching my levels is a must have situation. I am really going to work hard at turning my life around. I hope you all do the same.

I'm going out later today to a medical supply and purchase an arm band that will read my BP. I want to monitor it on my own for a while since I don't get the doctors office that often. I am curious just how regulated it is or it is not. Is anyone else interested in posting their BP here on a regular basis.

My physical last week gave me these results:

BP: 116/68 pulse 106 (?) (lowest reading in awhile, usually 125-140 over 70-80)

Cholesterol: 209 (up from 179)
Triglycerides: 177 (up from 152)
HDL: 54 (up from 45, yea!)
LDL: 120 (up from 104)
ratio: 3.9 (same as before)

fasting glucose went down 3 points to 82 (yea!)

So I still need to focus on dietary and exercise choices to improve cholesterol levels. I had lost over 15 lbs. in the last year, so this probably played a role in the #s also. FYI- I don't take any meds for these factors. My doctor doesn't seem concerned about my numbers, but I want them to be better. I believe this will be more difficult as I get older, so I want to get a head start with focus on prevention.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Dear God, please help me to remember that there is nothing that can happen to me that You have not permitted, and that if You have permitted it, You are right with me as I make my way over, under, around, or through it.

Total Cholesterol 167 DOWN from 223
HDL 47 DOWN from 49 headed the wrong way!
LDL 88 DOWN from 148
Triglycerides 16o UP from 130 headed the wrong way!

but overall the best blood report in 15 years! emoticon

Click on the "my nutrition" link at the top of the page. Log what you eat every day. At the end the day, click on "show my daily feedback". It is at the top of the log. It will break down sodium, cholesterol and pretty much any thing you want to track. It will show you eating patterns. I was amazed at how much sodium I was getting. I also appreciated knowing the calcium (one of those -women of my age- things ). Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes. There are many useful tools on this site. Just explore!!! Good luck. Glenda

I agree with Lynn wholeheartedly!!! Use this site for the lifestyle and health blogs. Definitely use the tracker. At the end of the day have it break it down for you. You will be surprised at what you see and some patterns may emerge. And lastly, use us as support. That's why they call it "teams"!!! I started out on cholesterol and BP meds. Now I am only on the cholesterol meds and they are the lowest dose. I am still fighting the weight, but you can make the diet changes to affect the health. good luck! Glenda

OK take a deep breathe first... I had high numbers after dropping almost 30 pounds when I had my checked. I worked at it for 3 months and got it down some and I'm still working on it now. (I call it my mom thing and the same thing goes for my B/P) Take one step at a time, you can get your numbers down. Come up with a game plan that works for you. Use the food tracker, it helps a lot. And don't get mad even if you have a hard/bad day, that's all apart of living. I just went through one myself. What helped me was tracking my foods and cardio, so see what you can come up with. You're not in this boat alone and you can do this, just give it some time. This spark site is great and it works....just hang in there...your spark friend....greenbird75 emoticon
