Blood Test Results Are In

Every year my work has a Health Fair and part of the Health Fair is a blood draw where our cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, calcium, and several other tests are performed. I am happy to say that both Heinz and I have fantastic results. All of our tests are within the healthy ranges. Yeah us! I am ecstatic about Heinz's cholesterol level because it is within the very optimal range and his HDL cholesterol (along with mine) are very high (which you want high). HDL cholesterol is considered to be the "good" cholesterol because it carries cholesterol away from the arteries and into the liver where it is passed through the body. Blood work is a great way to let you know what's really going on inside of your body. If you haven't had your blood work done lately, it's worth knowing what your numbers are. Our health is to important to overlook.
