May you live in interesting times…

foods Good news my friends!  My PTH and Calcium test results were within normal range!  Parathyroid tumor surgery is not in my future!

On the down side, my cholesterol (LDL) levels are mysteriously  elevated.  I would love to manage this with diet rather than more meds!  Wondering if the Benicar high blood pressure medication is pushing it too…. WebMD is one of the few websites that did list elevated choloesterol as a rare side-effect….  how to tell is the question.

Of course it could just be the normal aging process too, but no family history, so it is suspect…

Any thoughts?

    Congratulations! I’m so happy for you! I saw the hematologist today too, drew blood and long conversation but odds are looking good so overall, it’s a great day (that and the temperatures are finally in the 70s here!)
