:cp: Wow great work!!! You've had a good weight loss too. And look what it did for all the other numbers.

What is A1C? What are normal triglyserides? (Can't you tell it's been awile since I had a physical!)

Sandi, A1C has to do with blood sugar. It measures your average blood sugar over about a 3 month span.

Per my last visit, over a year ago, their measurements for cholesterol were as follows:

Under 200 for the total was good.
Under 59 for HDL was good.
Under 150 for Triglycerides was good.

I hope that's right. At the time mine were all within normal limits...
