My Health June 3, 2006

Posted by fajita in Exercise, family, Grief, Health, Weight Loss.

I went to the doctor the other day for a physical. He said everything looked good, for the most part, but blood tests would come in the next couple days. I told him about this cough I had at night and the weird sensation I had in my throat.

He figured I had acid reflux, even though I rarely feel anything in my throat. I am on Prevacid and the there is now no fried foods, chocolate, mint, and some other things I can't think of right now at night.

I got the blood results back today. Blood suagr is good, but my fears were confirmed. High cholesterol. SInce I am already exercising and it is still high, it looks like I will be needing some meds for it as well.

This is not a surprise, though it is a diappointment. My family has a history of this kind of thing. My cholesterol is actually hte lowest in my family, I believe, but still over 200.

I wanted to avoid this, but it looks like I will be headed to the doctor Monday to get some meds and a prescription.

I'm 36 years and I guess this is the time when I will begin accumulating ongoing meds. Does anyone know, do I qualify for Medicare part D? Ha, J/K.

I started cholesterol meds at 39. I work out a lot… my level was 307. It’s now 180 ish… If it’s hereditary… you were going to get on it anyway. Yes, it’s expensive!

Yeah if its hereditary you were going to be put on the meds : ) I have high cholesterol and I am only 24 and I exercise for about 30 mins a day for 4 times a week and I watch what I eat and make sure you cut back on the fat. Keep us posted 🙂
