I got the results of resent blood work back and it is good news!!
Cholesterol: 136 (should be under 200)
Tryglycerides: 96 (should be under 150)
HDL (good chol 39 (should be greater than 40)
LDL (bad chol)78 (should be less than 130)
Glucose 91 (should be between 75-99)
In 2009 - last time I had blood work done
Cholesterol 158 (22 points HIGHER than this week)
Tryglycerides 138 (42 points HIGHER than this week)
HDL (good chol) 41 (2 points higher, which is actually better)
LDL (bad chol) 89 (11 points HIGHER than this week)
Glucose 82 (so I am 9 points lower here...which might concern me a little)
So now I have to research how to raise my good cholesterol and maybe figure out why at almost 50 lbs lighter and free from all little debbie snack cakes, my glucose is higher (although it is still within normal limits being under 100)
Great news. Completely pleased.
