    Those are really good numbers Judy. And NOT just for a person of your age, lol. I'd bet my oldest son's numbers aren't that good and he's only 24.
    huggs and congrats!

    Hi Kim I think those are my best numbers so far on my journey I have had the total number lower like 171 but to get the LDL under 100 that was one of my goals and the good HDL was 65 and 56 in prior years the triglyserides stayed about the same . 50 I think it is from the combination of healthy foods and all my walking approx an hour a day ,
    thanks for your responce
    Get your son to go walking with you and push healthy foods while he is with you LOL
    My Hubby eats like me and we walk together But his numbers aren;t as good as mine ..202 total and 140 ldl and only 40 hdl triglyserides are the same as me though

    Wow Judy congratulation! You have great numbers. You are the proof it works.
    I don't know what my numbers are, my doctors don't do blood work in a regular basis. They say it cost to much to the system. I see my Dr. in December and have a requisition to do blood work before so I'll see then.

    Helene, I'm with you on "putting get blood work done" on my to-do list. I just need to get a new dr.. Since I got married almost 4 yrs. ago and moved to a new city. I had a nice dr. (female) I really like and could say anything to. I prefer a woman dr.. Last time I had my bloodwork done my numbers were good and they have always been in OK range, but just want to get current tests.

    Helene, didn't you say you are on some medication(s), I would have thought that the dr. would want to see some bloodwork to see if that changes anything in your "system". I don't take any meds, but if I was I would want my blood tested to watch for any changes. I remember when my Mom started BP pills, her dr. would watch for any changes. Her potassium would get out of range due to BP pill.
