Where This Meets That

New Numbers are in!

The results from Friday’s six-month blood-work are in, and they’re pretty great!

Total cholesterol:  141 (down from 155 in April)
HDL (good) cholesterol:  50 (flat from April but still good)
LDL (bad) cholesterol:  81 (down from 90 in April)
Triglycerides:  50 (down from 74 in April)

Based on these results, my doctor has recommended that I cut my statin dosage in half and drop my fenofibrate dosage altogether. Yes, Doctor, right away!  I’ll go back in for another round of blood-work in a month to see how my levels have reacted.

Meantime, I got the results as I was heading out for a walk/run, and they fueled me to a new personal best: five miles.  Beautiful fall day, wonderful iPhone soundtrack, and good news all led me to a most joyful hour of exercise!

Now, about this pesky 36 pounds . . . 🙂
