I had a followup with my heart specialist, who was happy to report I had handed all his exams. First, I received the very best bloodwork outcomes ever, triglycerides good, complete ldl cholesterol below 150, ldl low. My hdl had additionally dropped under regular, however he’s not frightened 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 capabilities, 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 will not be a priority so long as complete ldl cholesterol and ldl are good.
The second check was that I wore a coronary heart charge 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 received the results of the nuclear perfusion/exercise stress check. Good blood circulate to the center was noticed, even when exercising at an honest tempo. So general a clear invoice of well being for my cardiovascular system.
I’m inspired and glad to know it’s secure to train as vigorously as I need. I’ve been working more durable on my bike climbing expertise recently 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 from time to time.
