One pharmacy in old town called me up stating that there would be a free Bone Density Test and Cholesterol Test held in their shop on Tuesday, just a couple of days ago. Since it is free of charge, I went to get the tests done. No long queues surprisingly cos I went in the afternoon after taking lunch and all. Not so accurate no doubt but with lunch and all, I was expecting my cholesterol level to be on the "high" side.
Firstly, I was instructed to put my right leg on a machine...
The result came out like this.... at the -0.9 level but still on the green side....
Borderline no doubt... but at my age, it is not surprising at all....
Two of my colleagues were at the yellow and red respectively...
One of them bought calcium magnesium after that...
Then came my cholesterol level...
During the past two years, I was at the 6.1 and 6.2 level respectively.
But this year my level showed 5.68 (at another clinic few months back)
and now 5.52 at this pharmacy.....
It has reduced....
Maybe my daily drinking of BG22 Oats help to reduce my cholesterol level...
Or perhaps my light lunch also helps... ??
Whatever it is, I also must need to maintain...
Congrats on both the readings. Do exercises that will increase your bone density.ReplyDelete
Yes, and eat those which contributes to the bones too... vegetables mostly...Delete
So now you got license to continue makan-makan :DReplyDelete
Makan wisely too la... hahahaa...Delete
Well done! MY cholesterol was always high but lately it was under control and even went until 4.5 , thanks to Amway products - Cholesterol Balance and Salmon Oil. My wifey also went down. Thought of sharing with you since they are good. Of course, my 5 times a week exercise and diet also helps.ReplyDelete

Oohh I've done a bone density test before.. I remembered that few months I was having a lot of yogurt and Anlene milk, coz I was trying to conceive so I took a lot of hi calcium food.. And that bone density reading is very accurate, I got the highest reading among my colleagues.. So yeah, I guess those yogurt and Anlene milk really have a lot of calcium in them, hehe..ReplyDelete
Oh really.. now I am also taking yogurt.. alternate nights !Delete
