Good Test News
I got my first blood test results since my angioplasty 8 weeks ago, and my cardiologist was very pleased -- me too. My cholesterol dropped to slighly below 150, while my HDLs stayed at 60 and my triglycerides are now a shade below 100. My cholesterol had been borderline high before, between 200 and 230.
My doctor said that honestly, a lot of this progress is due to the medication I'm on, but I choose to believe it's also my new heart-healthy eating. Made it easier to pass on the pizza at work today and have a grilled chicken sandwich on whole wheat!
