I just got the results from my recent blood work.
Level: 224 (Bad cholesterol is normal, good cholesterol is low)
Analysis: This means I’m borderline high-risk for developing heart disease.
Treatment: Avoid tobacco smoke, maintain a healthy weight, and get at least 30–60 minutes of physical activity a day.
Level: 386 (High)
Analysis: This means I am at risk for heart disease and diabetes.
Treatment: Change my lifestyle. Control my weight, eat a heart-healthy diet, get regular exercise, avoid tobacco smoke, limit alcohol consumption, limit food/drink with added sugar.
My doctor suggested that I take Omega 3 fish oil supplements, which have been shown to lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol.
