Hi everyone! emoticon I just got blood test results mid October and I have high cholesterol. emoticon Ironically, I weigh 136 lbs and have exercised and eaten vegetables weekly. emoticon I turn 50 December 28th and it's the fight for my life because, well, I wanna die OLD emoticon . So what I've read is it's daily exercise, plant based diet and I plan on turning up the volume with those. But ultimately, stay away from high fat foods, not overeat as well. So I'm in it to win it like the rest of you emoticon Let's go get 'em! emoticon Season's Greetings! emoticon

Hi, I am new to this team. I am from the Buckeye State, of Ohio. I am married 29 yrs. now. I have two dogs. Both my husband and I have health issues that we are dealing with. He is a diabetic, and has High BP and High Cholesterol.
I have High BP, High Cholesterol, Anxiety disorder. Depression and have very bad arthritis. I am trying to get some of these health issues under control and to loose weight too. Most, of all, I want to be happier and healthier. I have been heavy for a good part of my life now, but as I get older, walking and exercising has become and issue too. I am working on some new goals. So far, so good. I have lost 3 lbs, my first weigh in, was yesterday.

I want to wish everyone many blessings in reaching there goals, and to be happier and healthier as we go along. Have a good evening, and God bless all.

Hi, I'm Liz. Was not on Spark for almost a year but I'm back. I have high bp, cholesterol, hypothyroidism, and now t2 diabetes. I have taken cholesterol meds for years, but last year I was switched to a different drug. My nightmare began. The statibs have me terrible side effects. I could barely walk. Went off for a few months per Dr and was feeling better gradually. Then was out back on old meds and symptoms started back. I want to lo see weight and eat heathier to bring those numbers down without the meds.

Hi there...fighting the same battles as many of you w/ cholesterol, long-standing, very stubborn high blood pressure, and T2 diabetes that is acting up again. As of my last PCP visit (am also under the care of a pain management doc for my ruined feet and bad knees) I have been officially labeled w/ Metabolic Syndrome and started on a statin for the first time ever. Confused as ever about how to eat; fortunately I like beans and yogurt (eat very little meat) so those plus salad greens will probably be most of my fare for the rest of the week.
Good luck to all of us.

Hi! Not new to Spark, but new to this team. I was told I need to get my cholesterol down or go on meds. So I need some major help.
Starting I am eating my fruits and veggies daily. Trying to get in the exercise each day. So I need accountability!

Hi My name is Gini. I am not new to Spark but new to this team. I have high cholesterol, high blood pressure and a host of other weight related issues. I am trying so hard to be consistent but often find myself mindlessly eating. I am almost completely sedentary and need to get moving again after a broken leg sidelined me years ago. I walk with a walker but can only manage, on a really good day, a very slow walk, of maybe 20 minutes tops. I need your help and support to stay alive. We can do this together with friends.

New to the forum, not new to SP...

So I had a ischemic stroke on April 27th... Not too bad, almost back to normal... Have been eating healthy tracking cholesterol, sodium and fat and doing great as far as eating healthy. Had blood tests yesterday and was really looking forward to the results, and this morning when I looked them up, I was really disappointed :( I've been on meds for high blood pressure and high cholesterol... here are the results...

Cholesterol 120 - 200 mg/dL 150
HDL Cholesterol 40 - 60 mg/dL 29
Triglycerides 0 - 150 mg/dL 182
Chol/HDL Ratio 0 - 5 5
LDL Cholesterol 0 - 100 mg/dL 85
Sodium 136 - 144 mEq/L 139

I know it doesn't look that bad, but I've seriously been soooo good about what I eat, You'd think that with the combination of eating right and trying to be as active as possible, and the meds... All would be normal... What can I do to get the HDL up, and the LDL down?? I'm so frustrated I want to cry. I've been trying to work out, but the fact of the matter is with the extreme heat (10+ days over 90°) and my fatigue from the stroke, I can't work out every day.

Any advice would be wonderful! I'm ready to throw in the towel because it feels like I am working hard for nothing!

Hello everyone, I am new to this team but not new to Spark People.'

Doctor recently said my triglycerides were out of sight, which is not good news to me who had heart surgery five years ago.

Not sure what I am doing wrong. I walk most days, watch what I eat and take the meds.
Dh eats and exercises as I do and his stats are great.

Joined this group to see if anyone is doing something better and would work for me.

Good luck to you all.
