OK, this may be boring for most, but I'm on cloud nine. I posted labs I had done 3 months ago, and for grins and giggles I had repeat ones done today. I love getting stuck by needles.........
My first labs were done before a surgery I had in December of 2001. So here they are:
Dec. 2001 Mar. 2004 July 2004
Triglycerides 306 89 51
Cholesterol 238 176 148
HDL 35 33 43
LDL 142 125 95
Cardiac Risk 3.0 1.2 1.0
The HDL went up, but that's the one you want to go up, while the LDL should go down. I don't know much about Cardiac Risk numbers, we don't deal too much with that in the ER. Maybe the Vampiress out there can explain it better.
Anyway, the way of eating is definitely worth it! I was really for lipitor and glyburide and stuff.
Boring I know but I'm excited.
