Yesterday I went in and had my blood pressure and cholesterol checked. I'm 30 so I guess it was time for it, and my diet is horrible and lately I'm a fat bastard. I fully expected to be told I had to change my ways or die in 6 months.
Instead my Dr. says to me "You have the lowest cholesterol levels of any human being I have ever seen."
My HDL (good choleterol) was 15 and my LDL (bad) was N/A.. or 0
wtf? The way I eat? Seriously Cheeseburger is my primary food group.
So I guess I just hit the genetic jackpot basically. For whatever reason I just don't store cholesterol in my blood. Maybe my digestive system is discarding it and shitting it out? I dunno.

So anyway, I'm thinking of starting a group of super humans. We will fight crime.

Yep. My doc says that it's mostly genetic. Sure, your diet can have a small effect on it. But overall, it's just a matter of your genes.

Yep..

I've been on Lipitor since the young age of 25....It sucks but the only way I can control it.

~My old man had his first heart attack at 38 so I have every intention of taking this stuff until they come up with some kind of gene therapy~

Did he check to make sure your liver is working? :)

No but I tested it at Ye Olde Pub just recently, it's sputtering along fine.

Did they get your blood sample mixed up with a glass of water, thats unheard of. If I were you I would go on a pork binge for two weeks and have it rechecked.

Your ideas intrigue me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

yeah, the doctor considered it extremely odd. Ended up sending me down the hall to the lab to have it done again.
It's right.

So your superpower is the ability to eat enormous amounts of queso dip?

That's a pretty good superpower.

My bet is still that your cholesterol is so high that it's breaking the measuring devices.

It might be that N/A means "Not Again?!" :hmmm:
