Yesterday was my day to go see the Doctor for my three month check up. Well, I had good news and bad news!! The good news is; the Doctors office called this morning and my cholesterol levels on everything the good and the bad were normal!!
My sugars were in the normal range too!! The nurse said the Dr was so pleased with my lab report. I am too!
Ok,my bad news was that my blood pressure was high and the Dr was very concerned. NO SALT or salt substitute! Just a little Mrs. Dash. I think I love salt more then sweets! oh, who knows I love them both!!
Remember I posted a while back,that I had Harding of the arteries. The Dr had a hard time hearing any pulse in my legs. It was very faint. So he has ordered a test on my legs called a articular Doppler Ultrasound . It can reveal blood clots in leg veins (deep vein thrombosis, or DVT) that could break loose and block blood flow to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). See an illustration of a stroke and an embolus.
I have this test next week. I just found the web site on Web MD that tells all about this Go here if you would like to read about it.
Well I am happy I haven't been adding to the problem that my cholesterol level was normal. Ok, enough about my health.
The weather is beautiful !! It was down to 50 degrees last night and it is so good to sleep with no AC and be cool with outside air. I love fall!
