Re: [IP] Cardiac CRP?

Hi Anita,

OK, in the number game your A1c was a tad lower than mine.  Sure it's not
where we want to be, but it does put us in a good area.

I don't think that fasting would effect your CRP levels.  Mine were quite
high too.  But, I've already had two heart attacks, so that doesn't surprise

The Pravachol is for your cholesterol.  I take that and Tricor to get my
numbers better.  My cholesterolologist was ecstatic.  My triglycerides went
down from 2,694 to 1,100!!  Yippeee!

My philosophy (besides the one below) is that if I am mostly upright and
breathing, then life is good.

Hope you get to feeling better!


Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in
finishing an activity but in doing it.
