Thoughts

I have not been posting, because WordPress has changed its posting format.  Very difficult for me.  I am not sure if this post will go through.  Cross my fingers.

Well, I recently saw my doctor regarding my blood test.  She told me to lower my total cholesterol and LDL by not eating cheese, pizza, and ice cream.  She also told me to eat fish twice per week.  Since I am not a fish person, I think I will eat salmon just twice per month.  At any rate, I don’t need to take cholesterol medication, so dietary changes might do the trick.

Be happy everyone.  Count your blessings.  I sure do.

    I fear your doctor is behind the times. Recent research revealed that cholesterol levels are governed y genes.

    What a beautiful picture! Good luck with the cholesterol. Changes are always hard. If the numbers are just a little off, dietary changes might make a difference.

    The post did go through! Good luck with the dietary changes, I should eat more fish too.

    My doctor also recently told me cholesterol is largely genetic but I try to eat a healthy diet all the same. Hard to do with all the conflicting information and who knows what chemicals make their way even into fruits and vegetables.

    What I love about getting old is that I don’t have to worry about long term effects of detrimental environmental issues as much as young people should.

    Enjoy what you love. You always count your blessings so no matter what, you can say that you have a good life.

    If I didn’t take statins, my cholesterol would be way too high, and it is genetic. My parents both died in their sixties of heart disease. I am glad there is a medication I can take to keep it in the normal range. 🙂

    I don’t have trouble posting with WordPress, but the interface has changed and I don’t find it as attractive and intuitive as the previous one. Oh, well, changes keep coming.

    As for the fish thing, I don’t eat fish nor do I take fish oil capsules. I do take flax oil capsules am fine. But, we eat almost no meat. I think that’s the healthiest thing we’ve done in our old age. Both of us are doing well.
