Thursday 24th first check up following from by-pass operation they re-did the cycling whilst measuring BP and ECG and found that I had a peak output of 110 watts which is an improvement over the performance at Gais in . They want me to keep on with the beta blockers (to improve pumping action) but have suggested a change to Nebilet 2.5mg / day I'll check it out and see if its worth doing they want it to reduce my pulse rate so that's a new investigation into a natural way of reducing heart rate (eat more foxgloves ?). During the discussion after I had demonstrated that my BP was in the normal range most of the time they still wanted me to restart the BP medicine I had been on before and a Statin. I told them of my problems with Statins and pointed out that they were off the menu. They suggested a drug with a different action one which blocks the absorption of Cholesterol in the gut (has no chance of reducing cholesterol to the levels they want so i'm not going to take it) They have said that I can stop taking the Brillique to which I replied now I can shave with confidence again they also thought that I was taking the full 2 tabs a day despite the fact I had said on previous occasions I had dropped it to one tablet.They still failed to explain why they wanted my Cholesterol so low I think I'll dig out the reference to the publication I found add my take on it and send it to the hospital. I think I'll have to double up my efforts to go Ketogenic by getting a higher proportion of fats to protein. Also I think I'll look into the database (FDDB.info) so I can calculate the levels of Fat Protein and Carbohydrate as a % of my calorific intake. I'm also thinking of getting a meter or urine strips that read Ketones as well as glucose meter. Next check up 12 months I'll continue with the Concor (beta blocker until they run out ) then decide if I'll take the new one of stop alltogether in the meantime I'll look into this pumping efficiency claim if there is publicised peer reviewed information out there and it shows that there a a significant improvement in pumping efficiency perhaps I'll try it. I got the written report from the University Hospital Zurich at the end of April basically setting out what I said above The anti-Cholesterol drug they want me to try is Ezetimibe I suggested this one the Drs at Gais but they wanted Statins first. now my feeling is trying to control Cholesterol to less than its natural level is a wasted effort much better to concentrate on the level of inflammation besides which there are drugs with the same action as Ezetimbe which are known to cause problems with thinking.
