Results of My Bloodwork
February 18, 2004
After posting Tommie's lipid profile (HDL = 65, LDL = 65, Total CholesteroI = 139; Triglycerides = 45), I promised that I would publish my bloodwork when I got it, to see what our diets are doing to or for us. So here it is.
I had eaten a large egg the day before I was tested because, when I ate the egg, I didn't know I was going to be tested the next day. I don't know whether or not it made a difference, but...
Total Cholesterol = 180
HDL = 71
LDL = 98
Triglycerides = 56.
These numbers aren't as good as Tommie's, but Tommie is on Zocor, a statin drug. Also, Tommie's numbers, although they're good, were exceptionally good the night she was got the above lipid numbers.
My fasting blood sugar was 81.
I would have preferred that my fasting blood sugar be down in the seventies, but hey! I'll take it! It beats adult-onset diabetes.
