Well, following my disappointing appointment at the lipid clinic last month I have received a letter today from my usual consultant who is not happy with my latest blood results which shows my total cholesterol level has crept up to 7.2 and he wants to see me himself on 22nd August. First time I have been pleased my levels have gone up and don't have to wait the year to be seen again that the other consultant advised. They also have my Lp(a) result - 25 mg/dL which means nothing to me of course but my consultant says 50mg/dL is the minimum level that they would be concerned about so I am well away from that. Will need to do some more research on the internet about Lp(a) levels unless one of you well informed people out there can advise me. My cholesterol has gone up to 7.2 because I had been messing about with my statins which if the other consultant had bothered to listen to what I was saying he would have known. The down side now is that my consultant will now once again try to add in (probably ezetimibe) even more drugs to my ever reluctant self!
