Live well: Continue to live well, exercise regularly, eat well with balanced meals low in fats and cholesterol rich foods, do not smoke, practice proper hygiene, wash your hands often to avoid infections and spreading them. If sexually active, practice safe sex with condom use, etc. Avoid risky behaviors like drug use, tattoos and piercings from unauthorized and non-licensed people, etc. Stay well.
