However, a closer look at my medical records would have suggested there was a problem. My total cholesterol was around 400, and my triglycerides, which are really affected by diet and exercise, were 600 to 700. A healthy number is 150 or below. I was not on a INVALID ARTICLE ID, but the doctors were urging me to start exercising more and to cut down on refined carbohydrates, like pasta and bread. That can really make your triglycerides shoot up, and I love all those things.
The next morning the pressure was so great I could barely walk, so I took a taxi to the hospital. I know you are supposed to call an ambulance, but thats what I did. When I got to the emergency room, I knew what to say: "I have chest pressure and I think I am having a heart attack." It was 6 a.m. and they wheeled me in and started giving me blood thinners right away.
