I have been on a healthy eating and exercise regime for 18 months now. In that time I have lost 3 stones and certainly seen my fitness improve. Done partly for the obvious reasons I also started down this route because last year I was told my cholesterol was high and also high in the “bad cholesterol” bracket. Tomorrow is my blood test and then Monday is my visit to the lipid clinic to review the results. My GP and I discussed me going onto statins but I didnt want to for various reasons. The lipid clinic is a chance to really delve into my cholestrol and whether I am making progress (or not) and also what risks I run if I do nothing other than the diet and exercise.
Looking forward to it in a strange kind of way
