After my latest blood test the practice nurse told me it would be good if i could eat more healthily and reduce my chorlesterol levels.

My total level is 3.75 and the LDL , HDL and Triglyceride levels are all in proportion as well, i just laughed and walked out.

Mentioned it to my GP at the next appointment and he did agree should could be a little enthusiastic at times and said everything was OK.

NO JOKE ..

Make sure you get the right cuff for the BP Machine there are 4 different ones. The small ones give higher readings. High BP reading can be as much as 30 different. So 80 / 160 could be 80 / 130

EVERY TIME ..

You get your BP Taken make sure they use the right one.

WHAT SIZE ..

Take the cuff and the narrow side should go half way round your arm ..

Hope you get it sorted. Loose weight is a good idea and so is giving up the booze.

Similiar happened to me 3 month ago when I went for my healthy heart check after much arm twisting from my GP.
Heart & blood pressure fine, Cholesterol low amazingly enough but sugar levels high and obese, 5'10" & 15 stone 3 lb. I don't look obese by any stretch of the imagination but decided to do something about it.

I've totally changed my diet, cut out all the things I love. Sweets, crisps, chips, salted peanuts and last but not least Lurpak !

Now down to 13 stone 7lb and look like a bloody skeleton ! Bmi measure still says I am overweight need to get below 13 stone.

I'm 6ft and 12 stone 3 lbs and they tell me I'm over weight.
It's a joke.

I’m 6’4” to 6’5” according to which leg I’m standing on, and I have the blood pressure of an 18year old and low Cholesterol, I’m built like three brick out houses and weigh in at about 22.5 stone, my Doctor always says I’m a fine figure of a man. (but I might be scaring the crap out of him?):rolleyes2:

healthy travel?........spain

snowbirds........I had to return to uk last april, while heading to spain with chest and heart issues.........could have been serious, so after hospital several months at doctors sorting out tablets and settling the issues, and for my problems, the extra sun and exercise of tripping should be good for me, so its off to spain on 21st sept as soon as doc gave all clear, currently at sete on french riviera about 7 to 10 days from spanish border,......all goes well, return to bristol end of feb......good luck..,......steve bristol
