Although I always felt good, healthy and decently fit, I thought it might as well be wise to make a major “overhaul” of my health so that any possible defect could be (hopefully) corrected in time.
I was actually a little nervous before the presentation of the results. When the doctor told me to take a deep breath and relax, you’re still a winner, it felt nice but a little bit disturbing. It turned out that my cholesterol was too high. At the ultrasound test of my carotid arteries, it also turned out that I had the precursor to plaque formation. When the doctor said that if I had waited for 7 years, the situation might not have been so bright, I came to think of my mother who had the same problem and who died due to stroke.
