Where This Meets That
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 . . . 🙂
