I've just switched to a new surgery. My new GP is nice, but obviously isn't au fait with my health issues just yet - so when she told me blood tests showed high cholesterol I brushed it off by explaining that it was deemed normal for me years ago, when it was 4.5 - but it's now at 6.8!
My diet is generally good (fish, chicken, veggies, pulses) and exercising isn't really an option with ME/CFS (my sister, who also has the condition, suggested yoga for beginners). The only think that my GP and I can identify as the culprit is the fact that I have a functioning but cirrhotic liver, and I've ordered a low cholesterol recipe book (my husband has high blood pressure and I think he'll benefit as much as I probably will).
My heart is already struggling (thumping heavily and painfully at times) and now I know why. What I don't know is how to fight this when my liver is possibly the only cause. Any suggestions, please?
