He mentioned Monday evening that he'd gotten a follow-up call from our doctor. They just called to tell me my blood test results, he said.
Me: Oh really?
Him: Yes. No big deal. They told me this and they told me that. And my cholesterol level was 130, apparently that's on the high side.
Me: You have high cholesterol?
Him: No. I don't have high cholesterol. My cholesterol number was on the high side.
Me: But doesn't that mean you have high cholesterol?
Him: No!! It just means that I have to be aware of what I'm eating and exercise moderation at times.
Me: I can't believe you have high cholesterol. You exercise and eat very healthy foods.
So I did a bit of googling the next day - to be fair (to me, that is), I did search for "cholesterol number is a bit on the high side" and "cholesterol number 130." I did not search for "high cholesterol."
I found a really helpful page that detailed out cholesterol risk ranges (here) and an even better page that outlined a healthy eating guide to promote lower cholesterol (here).
I printed the eating guide and took it home. While making dinner, I mentioned what I'd learned and told The Boy that it appeared we were doing fairly well with meeting the guidelines already.
Him: I wish I'd never told you about that phone call.
