    Got talking to my sister the other day, told her how I'm doing on Atkins and she said I should be getting regular cholesteral checks, think she is a bit worried about me.
    So, do you have regular ones?

    Thanks x

    I have annual ones now, but back when I started Atkins my Dr insisted I had monthly Blood, Liver and Kidney function tests. As it happens my BP started to go down so did my cholesterol levels, I now have high good ones, low bad ones and my BP is spot on Red.

    I have to have my cholesteral checked at the docs only because thats what my Dad passed away with. Before Atkins mine was BLOODY high, now all normal!

    Just wish I knew about Atkins so I could have told my Dad, love him!
