Doctor Update

I got a call from the office at 3:15. I don't have AIDs - Yeah! What I do have is extremely low cholesteral (the good kind).
Total is 132
HDL is 17
LDL is 88
Triglycerides are 134
By what I can tell via webmd, the HDL needs to be higher and the doctor wants me to go pick up some Niaspan. I'm already on high blood pressure medicine. Right now I'm leaning towards changing eating habits to raise my HDL and lose weight which might even eliminate the need for my blood pressure meds. I do eat alot of high carbohydrate foods so maybe lowering that will shed the pounds?

BTW, there was no mention of the fax from earlier.

Stay You.
