I had mine tested once but it was a long time ago. I have a doctor's appointment next month for a complete physical and I'm sure he'll test it then.

I had mine tested I think a couple of years ago (?) & if I remember correctly, my good one (LDL?) was a bit on a low side.

Is this a regular physical?

I have to go and get mine - well, at least see a cardiologist and the ob-gyn.

I'm the same! I've been wondering whether the sleepiness isn't the cholesterol - which would mean that it's way up there. We'll know on Tuesday - ack!

Do you have a sweet tooth? Between German pastries and Turkish ones, you have a lot to choose from!

I'm going for bloodwork on Tuesday. I think the last time I went was... 12 years ago? Could it have been that long already? Ouch!

I hope the numbers are all good, Ludam.

Yeah, this is a regular physical. I go to my GYN in March and then see this particular doctor every six months. He's actually an internist.

I don't know what it is currently - when I was tested about 4 years ago, it was pretty good!

I hope it's still good now, too, Bren!

I have the impression that you are careful about what you cook and eat and that you are fairly active, too?
