LindaLee Posted June 15, 2012 Share Posted June 15, 2012 I got the results of my blood work from last week: Total cholesterol: 243 (down 12 points from three months ago, possibly partially due to the statins) HDL: 74 (optimal more than 60) LDL: 157 (optimal less than 130) - however, this is a calculated LDL level Triglycerides: 62 (optimal less than 150) The research I've done says that my triglycerides and HDL are excellent, and that my ratios are all excellent as well. BUT when the nurse called to give me all this info, she said the doctor wanted to double my Zocor! I told her I quit taking it and I wasn't going to start it again, that I wanted to try diet and exercise. She seemed somewhat taken aback; the doctor was doing a delivery, so she said she'd talk to her and get back in touch with me next week. I'm going to tell her about this meal plan too... So...we'll see what happens... Linda Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
