so today was the day that i got to see my doctor. i was hoping that the news i got was going to be a lot better than it was, but i'm really happy with the results of my blood work.
my HDL count was 32 that means i brought it up two points from my last test. i was a little pissed off considering all the hard exercise that i did. so there has to be something else that i can do on top of me exercising like crazy. my doctor did ask me to start taking a baby aspirin a day which i think i'
ll start doing cause it can do nothing but good. i hope.
my A1C is still at 5.9 and i even brought my overall cholesterol levels down a bit and my bad cholesterol which was also good to hear him say that i lost two pounds from my last visit. i have to admit that he did make me really happy to hear that he was really proud of all that i have accomplished in such a short time.
one of the things that i have to say i was proud of was his courage to tell me that he had double bypass surgery a while back ago. he made it clear to me that he didn't want me to experience the same thing that he had to, that way he's been putting so much pressure on me to bring my HDL up. he went as far to show me his scar from his surgery, i have to say that really scared the crap out of me. all i could think about was me in a hospital bed with a bunch of people staring down at me with surgical masks. i was close to breaking down and crying.
one of the things that i was afraid of was that he was going to put me on another medication and i was hell bent on not taking it if he was. well i'm proud to say that i didn't have to talk him out of writing the prescription he said that he would give me another month to bring up my HDL.
i know i have a lot of work a head of me and i think with some extra help from some omega-3 foods i can do it.
