I recently got a new GHP, a middle aged woman who looks more like a frazzled soccer mom than a doctor. ^_^ She's very nice, and more importantly, thorough, and is one of those doctors who looks at the bigger picture.
I had some bloodwork done at my psychiatrist's request back in October, and they faxed the results to my new doctor. My liver and kidneys are just peachy (thanks for asking), but my cholesterol is a whopping 256! /faints
I have a recheck in April, and I want to have brought that number down, or else I'll have to go on medication. I'm on FIVE medications already (for asthma and my bipolar disorder) and I don't want to add another one.
So today is Day One of Operation Cholesterol Drop. The first phase is to add exercise, which might be a challenge today as it is POURING rain. =\ I'm sure I'll figure something out.
