Thresholds kept changing over the years
If you ask me, the threshold levels that are used to define when cholesterol is too high have been pushed down further and further due to the influence of the pharmaceutical industry. Because the threshold levels kept changing, my cholesterol was sometimes borderline, sometimes it was okay, and sometimes it was too high. I found that quite irritating to be honest.
Then, towards the end of last year, I found out that I not only have borderline , but my blood sugar levels are also slightly too high. My doctor suggested I go to see a dietary consultant. The fact that I now had two elevated levels did worry me a little.
So I went to see a dietary consultant, as my doctor suggested, and then I changed my diet. But the only reason I decided to watch what I eat was because both my cholesterol and blood sugar levels were now too high.
