Cholesterol update

Posted in Uncategorized by beebe4 on May 24, 2004

I had a doctors appointment this morning. It went well. The doctor was impressed with the 42 lbs weight loss, and gave me these numbers from the blood work that had been done the previous Monday.

           &nbsp               Before   After

Total Cholesterol   221       216

HDL (good)            39       46

LDL (bad)             162       149

LDL/HDL Ratio      4.3       3.3

All in all he was pretty impressed. He wants me to get down to 175 (ideal for my height) and get the LDL/HDL ratio down to 3.0, but 3.3 is pretty good, considering 3.6 is “average risk”
