Hi all, i have posted before with my journey since discovering i have FH and extremely elevated levels of lp(a). My next update was due around november when i go for my follow up appt but in the meantime, i had a blood test for something else and learnt that my numbers have improved within just a month since the last test 😊 below is results in aug/sept:
total 7.8/6.5, hdl 1.46/1.36 (slight reduction), ldl 5.75/4.23 (really pleased!), triglycerides 1.3/2 (increase maybe because i havent really altered my diet).
Overall, not bad i think and will continue with the same regime and am looking forward to my next appt when hopefully the numbers come right down to "normal" levels. I am hoping the consultant says something like "so the statins are working" To which i can reply "no actually, i havent touched the statins" 😁 Just the thought of taking statins brings back horrible memories of lethargy, muscle ache, brain fog, etc but i feel great with my non statin method and i owe a lot of appreciation to the guys and gals on this forum who have helped increase my knowledge and put me in charge of my health 👍 Thank you 😊
