I visited my doctor last week. Kick-bun awesome news all around!
All blood counts and thyroid (I've been on HRT for thyroid for years) are normal.
Overall cholesterol = 200 (it was 194 last year)
HDL (good) cholesterol = 60 (it was 53 last year)
LDL (bad) cholesterol = 123 (it was 124 last year)
Ratio = 3.3 (it was 3.7 last year). Anything below 5.0 is good; I am in an exceptional range here.
Resting pulse = 72
EKG heartbeat = 53 (it was 52 last year), which is athlete level
I have what's called sinus bradycardia
. This is not dangerous, and is found is 50 - 85% of the athletic population.
I am up 12.5 lbs. since last year, but I feel great and, per the numbers I am doing very well.
Essentially, the things that slow me down are weight, age and probably not the best of knees. But my heart can, it seems, run a marathon (don't get any ideas, Joe ....).
