Doctor Visits

I went to see my cardiologist a few weeks ago.
My total cholesterol is now 162.
He told me to lose 20 lbs and get more exercize.
I suppose he's right, on both counts. I weigh as much now as as I ever have.

I saw my GP last week about some heartburn I've been having for the last 20+ years. He gave me a prescription for ranitidine (zantac). I read here that:
Ranitidine can interfere with the metabolism of alcohol.
Patients taking ranitidine who drink alcohol may have elevated blood alcohol levels.

At least I have that to look forward to.
I'll keep you posted
