    the results are in.

    Best cholesterol in my life.

    Total 223
    Trigs 119 (range under 150)
    HDL 96! ( range greater than 49)
    LDL 103 ( range less than 130)
    Total / HDL ratio 2.3 ( range less than 4.5)

    Also had TSH and result 2.3 ( range .35-5)

    THE POWER OF AVOCADO!!!

    It's really the only thing I have changed in my diet. I've been vlc for many many years. Eaten lamb, beef , fish, eggs forever.
    It's my main fat everyday. I also switched form regular mayo to an expeller pressed conola based mayo. I was a little worried about that. I've always been a mayo junkie but this seemed a better option than soy based.

    So, I'm happy!!!

    Well Done @Kristin251, they look like excellent results though your figures are different to UK's.

    Is this the conversion chart you need?

    On second thoughts, no, sorry, you need a chart for converting cholesterol not glucose, but this one might come in useful anyway.
    How about this one:

    No there was one you could type in the U.K. Or US and it would convert to the other so easier to understand. But thanks. !!
