What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

Ignorance is NOT bliss when it comes to your health.  Blood pressure, blood glucose, BMI, weight, resting heart rate, cholesterol (HDL, LDL, VLDL, and Triglycerides ) are all important numbers to know.  Having numbers outside of the healthy “norm” may indicate problems now or could be a precursor to future health issues.

The results may not be pretty or what you expected (the mind allows for a whole lot of denial) but once you know your numbers you can take steps to get them under control and lead a healthier lifestyle.  Being proactive instead of reactive could save your life.

If you have a doctor visit coming up make it a point to discuss any health concerns and maybe have some blood work.  If you don’t have an appointment coming up, maybe it’s time to make one.

Now go run!
