Cholesterol is at 143.

Wife is TOTALLY confused since I eat stuff like eggs, bacon, sausage and so forth all the time with somewhat few veggies.


Sure is nice to come from solid gene stock!


WooT!

cholesterol is one of those things

if you don't have to worry about it, you don't have to worry about it.

But if you do.....

it's all in the genes

and i ain't talking levis.

Sarge will you consider becoming blood brothers with me, so that I can lower mine a little?

I'm the same, I was on Atkins for about a year. Cheese, bacon by the pound, steak and butter. My parents were freaking out so I went and got a physical. Cholesterol: 124 with virtually none of the "bad" cholesterol LDL or whatever it was.


Sweet.

I feel bad for guys who have to watch it all the time. I must be a constant battle.

My dad had low to normal cholesterol at each one of his once-every-other-year tests.


He died from complications in a bypass operation at age 45.



Do you smoke?

I eat stuff like eggs, bacon, sausage and so forth all the time with somewhat few veggies.

Same here, but my total was less than 80 the last time I had it checked. I hear that's bad or something.z

I know a man who has never been sick a day in his life (he's in his 50s). He credits it to his stout Norwegian gene stock.

What you eat does not significanlty alter your cholesterol. Food goes into cholymicrons and composes <3% of the total serum cholesterol


fyi

Yeah, but you might develop a sudden urge to play with dolls action figures...

Good for you man!

Last year's cholesterol number was 145. This year's was 172. My reaction: HOLY SHIT! What kind of increase is that?

Getting old sucks. Pretty soon, I'll have to limit meals that actually taste good to 1 per week.
