A little bit here concerning my cholesterol level... I did my BP Lab medical healthcheck the other day and when the results came back, my Total Cholesterol was at an alarming high! Luckily after my medical consultation, the guy told me that the Total Cholesterol numbers didn't really mean anything since they were derived from equations and not measured; but it was important to look at the Triglycerides and LDL numbers, which, fortunately, weren't so alarming afterall. Those, coupled with my Uric Acid levels, were enough for him to send me off with reminders that I should cut down on peanuts, red meat and do more exercise!
