Hi. My blood pressure is an issue. But, after months of working out, it has gone down. On top of my blood pressure high- I also have white coat(even though I work in the medical field!) And, the last time I went to the dr, it was barely above normal, even though I was very nervous!

Hi

Thanks for all your replies. Seems to me cholestrol is the biggest problem for now.

I will get some tips and information about cholestrol, so keep a eye on this form, maybe I found something that can help us all. I will post it here.

heart and cholesteral meds

both appear not to be fixable without meds

heart- have artery that wraps around heart instead of thru it, so causes some pain/discomfort when pumping too hard-- did all the tests and otherwise appears ok

cholesteral- have some hereditary thing that causes my body not to produce good cholesteral (wouldn't you think they'd have diagnoxed this a long time ago??)- so i'm on meds for that

heart/cholesteral meds= makes me feel old!!

I did not do any knitting today but I dediced to take me time and went shopping by myself. was gone all day and I had fun Just bought food and did a lot of looking. And to add icing to the day I had my hair done it feels so much better. While I was gone to decided the whole family will change their eating habits. I went all out I gone Veggies for the whole family. The last week I have had toss salad with dinner and everyone eat it so I figure that they can all eat healthy all the time. DD said it I have healthy foods in the house she will cook it so here is the first day of our new life style.

We are in the same boat. The cholestrol thing is just the same. I also believe that losing weight and stop smoking, I can get my cholestrol back on track again.

I had a problem with my foot too, I am a child of God, so I try to believe that the pain is not from God and He already paid for that pain. I know it sounds silly but I talk to that foot, and did not let it stop me from doing what I had to do.

Sometimes it hurt really bad so that I could not walk, but I pray and thank God for healing my foot. Sing a song and try walking.

It take some time, but today my foot is totaly healed, no pain at all.. without any docter.

I just feel to share it with you, because I know how you feel..

Shark will share.

Sore right foot led to a doctor visit in Feb. 08.

Doctor visit detected high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

In May I had lost 40 pounds and BP and cholesterol were within prescribed limits without medication.

Since May I have lost another 13 pounds and have worked myself into the best physical condition since my teens.

But - still 12 pounds to my goal by June of 09 and my foot continues to be a problem. Tendonitis of various forms.

Hi

Let's hear each others health conditions. And if I found something on that subject I can post them.

I have a colestrol situation. It's not a problem, but I have to watch it or it can become a problem. And with that - and now I am very honest - I am a smoker who really want to quit, but losing weight is easier for me than quit smoking..

Thats me Snip, What is your problem?
