Has it already been 11 days since my last update? I have 3 drafts pending to post but this post though is more important.
Last week on the 15th, I decided to use the government free Medical Health Surveillance voucher. It is time for a health check anyway. I requested the doctor to also check my knee as I have felt a lot of pain going up the stairs. Guess what? I have 1st stage osteoarthritis. Not serious to worry but serious enough to review my lifestyle. Exercise methods have to change. Supplements and diets have to change.
And today, I receive the rest of the report. LDL cholesterol is not good. I have to seriously change my diet and find a way to exercise (ie cannot exercise using my knee).
Next week I will be seeing another doctor to go through in detail of what medication to take, supplements and specific exercises I must do. In the mean time, I will do some research on how I could eat better at home and work!
And I do feel thankful that I know it now and have time to actually do better because I thought I was doing pretty well.
Wish me luck….and if you are in the same situation like me….do share!!
