That was the summary the doctor scribbled on my annual blood test results. Going in for my annual check-up I didn’t think i’d have any problems so the high cholesterol results were a bit of a surprise. I thought that my diet was reasonably good – avoiding fast-food outlets and having a salad for lunch most days but obviously I am having too much saturated fat – most likely through full-cream milk & ice cream which i’m partial to – so starting from today i’m on a mission to lower my cholesterol from 6.5 to <5.4 – i.e. back within the normal range! I will try to list my daily diet and in a couple of weeks get another blood test to check my cholesterol level again – hopefully with better results!
