The doctor’s diagnosis was that my ailments were likely from a virus, but that overall, my health is good.
He did have one concern that was separate from the light headed feelings I’d been having. My triglycerides were too high, though he did say that part of that was due to not fasting before the blood was drawn. He did say that I should start taking Omega 3, that the fish oil in them would help reduce the triglyceride level.
The great news, though, is that my cholesterol is in good shape.
LDL cholesterol(the bad) is “optimal” if it’s less than 100. I don’t know if I’ve ever had it that low before. It was 90!
HDL cholesterol (the good) should be above 40 in men. Mine was 42.
The visit to the clinic was on Thursday. I was back to the fitness center on Friday and Saturday and skipped Sunday. Had planned to go on Monday, but when I left the retiree breakfast, a light rain was falling and temperatures were below freezing, so I headed home. We stayed home yesterday because of the weather. So I managed to get 2 workouts in in the last week. We WILL be going to the gym today.
Oh, thanks for the well wishes, everyone! I’m feeling pretty good this week.
