Sorry haven't been on.

Long Week-end and dealing with some health issues.

My ds was sick today.

My blood pressure was high so they checked and re-checked it...:(

My blood=work showed my cholesterol levels were high too!

So I have a little pre=occupied, trying not to stress or worry.

Easier said then done...

I also lost my NP to, she is leaving my clinic for a new one.

I can stay and I will have a new NP.

Do you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol?

Feel free to jump in...

I don't think this is the article I originally read, but this one also states that exercising for longer periods of time at a slower intensity tends to raise HDL.

Thanks for sharing this Carol.

The one thing I love about ivillage is how we can connect with others.

I don't feel so alone and have learned so much from others.

Lorie

I am on medication to.

At my last visit I was told raising the good cholesterol is one of the hardest things to do.

That made me feel better.

I am definitely trying to be pro-active about my health.

I have both high blood pressure and cholesterol, both controlled with meds.
