I love my GP – just back from seeing her. She agrees everything else apart from my (admittedly extremEly high – 9) cholesterol is in prime condition (blood pressure, weight, every other blood test etc). So we will do another test in a couple of weeks to see if it was a blip and whether the fibre will help, and to exclude thyroid issues. She did not even mention statins! Apparently her dad has read the Kendrick book too 😂
As an addendum, we looked at my cholesterol history and the lowest it’s ever been tested is 5.2, rising to 6.5 last time about 4 years ago. She said they wouldn’t worry until 7.5 at our practice. Also, that I probably have a family history, but I don’t have anyone to ask about that really.
