On Friday i was in the local market with my wife when a N.H.S nurse approached us and asked if we would like a blood test. My wife was first to do the test, she is a healthy eater, no smoker and does regular exercise,she has a 2% chance of having a heart attack. Now it was my turn, I eat the same as my wife but do love bread with lots of butter, I smoke, don't exercise, work nights and the amount of sleep I get is broken up into 2hr segment, that my excuse for not exercising. The results were in ,the nurse told me to get to the doctors as I have a cholesterol level of 13 and a 38% chance of having a heart attack. So this morning I went to get a fasting blood test done, should get the results on Thursday. This is a wake up call !!!!
