Chia seeds. I had an unpleasant experience with them. They increased the size of my .... shall we say “output”? to an unfeasibly ginormous girth which I found truly alarming.

lol. Funny ahh... shit. We're being creative in our meals, more fish, more edamame, more brussels sprouts, beans, broccoli, peas,... so far so good

My HDL could come up just a tad, they said.  Walk 20 minutes a day, they said.

My LDL is 106, told me they like 100, a nice, round number I suppose.

I swear I replied to this.  did you post in both cellars?  these parallel universes are doing my head in.  

I got 179   I already follow a low chol diet and do a 5K four times a week, two walking and two running.  My sis has high cholesterol too, so chances are it's genetic, which is not encouraging.  BP and pulse great, BMI not brilliant but not obese and heading in right direction. sigh.  Doc said keep on doing what I'm doing but........ I'd rather have seen a lower figure.  Oh well, onwards.  Ran this morning.  HATE running

So the nurse who rang said retest in 6 weeks.  So I tried even harder and went for the retest this week .....turns out the nurse had emphasized the wrong thing.  The retest was for something else that she mentioned as an aside and it didn't improve so I'm off to a specialist   I guess the nurse is so used to stressing the cholesterol thing she went into standard emphasis mode.  So my shitty week/life wasn't helped with getting a voicemail from the doc saying she wanted to discuss the results immediately followed by a message from oncology saying they could squeeze me in this month.  Turns out it was just hematology but the scheduler who called usually works the oncology side and forgot to change her standard spiel (anyone noticing a pattern here.....?)      sorry for the hijack

I'm sorry you're dealing with substandard health care advice and service.  I know everyone is just trying to do their best, but maybe they should try a little harder.

Well it's not brilliant either way so maybe at least I have the bad-news stomach-sinking moment out of the way already?
