Hi Jennifer

Those values are just slightly on the high side, but they're not super high. It's good that they've picked up this change, because maybe in the future, it would continue to head that way. I think the best thing for you to do now is to see a dietician and get some ideas from them on what to eat, and then also to see a doctor about the medication aspect. It's your choice as to whether you take meds or not, but you also need to discuss the menopause meds and how they may be affecting you.

Good luck
