Oregon Heart and Vascular Institute came to work today and had a "Know Your Numbers" day. They did a fasting blood draw, blood pressure, and height and weight.
Let's just say- what I thought I weighed..is a bit off. And not in a good way. I actually weight 271 & I am 5'10". Here is are my numbers;
My Value Recommended Level
Triglycerides- 56 Below 150 mg/dl
Total Cholesterol 118 Below 200 mg
HDL "good" chol. 39 Higher than 40 mg
LDL "bad" chol. 68 Below 100 mg
Risk Ratio 3.0 Less than 4.0
Fasting Blood Glu 92 Below 100 mg
Blood Pressue 121/72 Ideal; 120/80 mmHg
So I am below in everything, I just need to get my good cholestorol up. They told me to excercise- Check. Lose Weight- Working on it. And eat fish twice a week- maybe. :) I am not that great at eating a lot of fish, but I am going to try. I just don't like cooking it & having it smell up my house.
I am going to work out today & work really hard on pushing myself.. :)
