I had a followup with my heart specialist, who was happy to report I had handed all his assessments. First, I obtained the very best bloodwork outcomes ever, triglycerides good, whole ldl cholesterol below 150, ldl low. My hdl had additionally dropped under regular, however he’s not nervous about that if ldl is low. I bear in mind Dr. Dean Ornish making the analogy that good ldl cholesterol, or hdl, is like rubbish vehicles. After ldl has carried out its correct features, hdl transports it again to the liver for processing. While you don’t have extra ldl, you want much less hdl to do the transport. That’s the speculation. In any case, the proof is that within the context of a comparatively low fats nutritious diet, decrease hdl just isn’t a priority so long as whole ldl cholesterol and ldl are good.
The second take a look at was that I wore a coronary heart fee monitor repeatedly for over every week, and did my regular train throughout that point, together with some strenuous exercises. No irregular coronary heart rhythms have been detected.
Lastly, I obtained the results of the nuclear perfusion/exercise stress take a look at. Good blood circulate to the center was noticed, even when exercising at a good tempo. So total a clear invoice of well being for my cardiovascular system.
I’m inspired and glad to know it’s protected to train as vigorously as I would like. I’ve been working tougher on my bike climbing expertise currently and have been having fun with it. I may also attempt to keep fairly stringent with wholesome consuming, with the occasional deal with thrown in every now and then.
