Taking into account the hype over bodyweight (obesity) being a contributory factor in my "poor" readings from my most recent blood tests, I would like to ask a 'simple' question. If (as my GP insists), my bodyweight is one of the major factors governing my apparently badly controlled cholesterol and blood-sugar levels - how is it that my previously 'normal range' results were achieved when I was almost a full stone heavier? Is he suggesting that I should try to regain this weight in an attempt to reduce my levels to their previously 'acceptable' levels? (No! I don't believe he is!) Unfortunately, the facts appear to have dumbfounded him and it has left me confused and mistrusting of so-called "professional advice".
