Cholesterol update

Just latest health update

I posted a detailed piece a few years ago on Cholesterol and was happy to report my level had dropped from over¬† 6 down to 3.5.¬† I had a blood test about four months ago that showed it had risen to over 5 so I’d gone back on the doctor’s radar. After a meeting with the doc I was changed from Simvastatin to Atorvastatin which is a stronger option. The latest blood test shows I’m down to 4.3.

HDL is at 1.04 and LDL is at 1.85

That puts me off concern but I’m still above where I should be – I need to become healthier but struggle doing gym style fitness as I find it so dull.

Anyone got any good ideas? I’m fair walker, get up hills a few times each month and I eat loads of nuts and fruit and less cheese / curries.
