Off to the dentist this morning. I wonder how many know that after a heart event it is a good idea to see your dentist, well it is always a good idea to regular dental appointments. Here we go again with another, as I understand it. Now as I have no medical training, I certainly not claiming any great knowledge here.
A simple dental check up can determine the health of your mouth. There are various gum diseases that can wreak havoc on your entire system and given the right circumstances even lead to a heart attack. I’ll ask the dentist to further explain it to me.
Still faithfully attending the gym. I am amazed to see how my body is changing. Arms have real definition to the muscles, as do the legs. Breathing has improved a lot. But with that I have really noticed something. The air in the gym is temperature and humidity controlled. With that air I am able to do much more than anywhere else. Temperature and humidity seem to do me in.
OK, I am seeing results but not so much with the stomach either in my weight or even inches lost.
I realize I haven’t really written about my edema. Fluid retention is an on going battle. I take daily medication to help pass water even with that I constantly have excess fluid on board. Weekly I take a ” mega” pill. On those days I can easily drop 7 or 8 pounds. This excess fluid adds both weight and bulk. Makes it hard to judge progress.
