High LDL and Associated Risk

I had my laboratory examination at Alexian Brothers (cheaper rates compared with other laboratory clinics and hospitals) for the following tests:

UE - urinalysis
FE - fecalysis
FBS - Fasting Blood Sugar (screening test for diabetes)
Creatinine - (kidney function test)
Serum Uric Acid
Lipid Profile:

The test results returned normal, except for my LDL or bad cholesterol. I am not sure how it turned out to be 2.92 mmol/l when the normal range for such test is from 0 to 2.50 mmol/l. I do exercise regularly (except for a busy week). I rarely eat meat. And I am far from being obese.

I just feel uneasy because LDL is considered a risk factor of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular problem runs in our family. Ugh!

I’m thinking of going back to swimming and playing tennis. These activities were cut off because of busyness. I’m also allocating budget for Herbalife Shake. I ceased from drinking it because of my limited budget.

The reason I submitted myself for these laboratory tests was my complaint of joint pain, ergo, a request for SUA. Fortunately, my uric acid is normal. That means, there is no need for me to halt from eating nuts.

Anyway, I will just try to eat a healthy balanced diet and minimize eating pizza.

Health Benefits of Malunggay: Can It be Used to Impregnate Your Wife?

All parts of the Malunggay tree offer great health benefits,according to health experts. I do not utilize its roots, trunk and branches but I do plan to make a Malunggay soup as soon as the tree provides more leaves.

Do you have a problem bearing a child? Eating the leaves of Malunggay tree can help impregnate a woman. You can drink its juice or eat its cooked leaves. (You may read this article about how Senator Zubiri activated his fertility and impregnated his wife.)

As for me, I use the leaves of Malunggay for my chicken soup. I also employ it as a gauze to stop the wound from bleeding.

Although some medical doctors (like my cousin) do not believe Malunggay’s healing power and health benefits, there are people who can qualify such vegetable as a miracle food.

Teeth Whitening Toothpaste is not Advisable for Me

Here and there, teeth whitening toothpaste ads are everywhere. But my orthodontist does not recommend using toothpaste with teeth whitening solution. He told me to avoid using it because of its ability to  remove fluoride which increases risk of tooth decay.

Good thing is that my teeth do not need whitening treatment. Whew!
