Cholesterol level question

I just had a routine cholesterol test and my doc said it is a bit high. 5.84. I am 48 years old and don't have any heart issues other than my Long QT Syndrome. He said to watch what I eat and get retested in 6 months to see if I need medication. Is this a level that I should worry about? Does waitin...

Re: Political comments?

I'd like other opinions regarding this issue. Love, Smart Red IMHO: I used to come to this group daily and at times hourly for some much needed support, but lately I find the group has slowly slipped away from the purpose of the group in the first place... support of people living with an ICD or fo...

Re: Battery Life - Flying Camel

Thanks to both of you!

I like to know as much as I can for my own peace of mind. It seems my battery is within the expected limits as well.

Thanks again,

Re: Free iPhone heart rate app

You place a finger over the camera lens on the back of the iPhone and it can sense your pulse. It is quite accurate as I'm paced at 70 and it gets it right on every time!
Great for when I'm exercising and want to keep heart rate in a target area.

Re: Where to get a magnet?

Flyingcamel, I have a question. And, I'm curious to know that if a patient called Medtronic themselves, and requested a magnet, would they send him/her one or would they say you have to get it from your EP? Suzanne, I called Medtronic in Canada and asked about purchasing a magnet for myself. They t...

Re: Where to get a magnet?

In my opinion, we all have the right to have a magnet and that is why I have one. I don't believe the doctors won't give us one because it is in our best interest - they won't give us one because they do not want to be legally responsible if anything bad were to happen. Maybe it is a little of both,...
