I have had a health scare...

My Cholesterol is way too high 300 and my Triglycerides are 441! I am going to a cardio doc tomorrow.
Any one else going through some life altering situations you wanna get off your chest?

  • I cholesterol is 235. I am on a diet , lost 12 pounds but I need to lose another 10. And I am taking fish oil pills and avoiding white flour and sugar.....hopefully all of those things I am doing will lower my cholesterol . I don't want to take Lipitor or any of the medications....I am scared!
    Good luck!

  • I had an ectopic pregnancy a week and a half ago ... and the due date was perfect timing for many reasons ... I wanted to be pregnant so bad! Now I have to wait 6 weeks and start all over again!

    Oh and after the surgery they placed me on the postpardum floor ... as if trying to induce depression!!
