Here and there I have had cholesterol above the ideal number of "200", since I changed my lifestyle by eating good and exercising I have been able to keep it check. As everybody that follows my blogs knows I fell of the wagon around the Holidays and as result I started to feel tire, stress, not able to sleep good and my blood pressure was also acting up. I went to the doctor for a much needed physical, he didn't think the blood pressure numbers were anything to be concern about because they are still within the good range, however, he ran a complete blood work and my cholesterol being the only thing to be out of control the total number is 232 and the LDL "bad" is 148.
He suggested to start on Crestor to bring it down and control it by going back to my routine of good food and exercise.
If you learn one thing from my mistake is to please make sure you keep eating and exercising the right amount your body needs to stay healthy. Is not worth to go in a binge and jeopardize the hard work and most important your health.
Have a great week everyone and keep walking! emoticon

    Watch out for pain in the muscles from them and you can take down your cholesterol naturally too with red yeast rice with out all that side affects. So far the only side affects that I know of is weight loss from red yeast rice

    Thanks for the advice I'll listen to my body.
    I'm glad you are back safe, the winter and driving has been brutal this year all over the US.

    Yes, I need to get back on gear, too, but I'm not having mine checked any time soon. At least I don't plan to. lol Exercise, exercise, exercise! We have to do it along with the proper foods. emoticon Also take care with the cholesterol meds-they can cause cramping and other muscle problems. My husband ran into that.
