I went for a routine MOT at the gym, this highlighted that I was as fit as I had hoped due to running at least 2 times a week. Good blood pressure, low glucose, excellent resting heartbeat..... then came the cholesterol check, the machine simply said 'HI' (nice and polite I thought). subsequently I have been to the doctors to get an accurate reading and it has shown to be over 10.
There is a family history going back at least 2 generations, so I feel a bit cheated that it is not my doing
Is anyone else in this boat I am 41 and have taken my first statin last night. My diet is changing as my wife and I discover more about this.
Wondering if anyone else has a similar situation.
Thanks for reading!
