I had a health screaning today and my cholesterol was too low to register <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">. I can't believe that. Also my blood pressure was low. The Dr. couldn't believe how healthy I was.<br><br><br><br>
B<br><br><br><br>
ps...I just found that exciting and wanted to share.

good to hear. so what's your secret? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br>
btw when you say your blood pressure was low do you mean it was low or it was normal/not high? because low blood pressure isn't a good thing

I just went to the dr. yesterday, too. She said I didn't need to have my cholesterol checked because they usually don't check until you hit 30, are pregnant, have diabetes, or something else that requires testing. She said she wasn't worried about it since I've been a vegetarian for so long. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I think I'll go check into donating my blood, though. She said that's a free way to have your cholesterol checked because they have to do that before they allow you to donate blood.<br><br><br><br>
Hehehe, I'm really curious about having it done, because I want to be able to gloat around my family by saying how low my cholesterol is because of my diet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Too low to register? What's the lowest point on the scale? Does it really go down to 1?<br><br><br><br>
Congrats, BTW. I was happy about 112, but I'd kinda like to say the doctors can't find any bad cholesterol in my body some day.
