April 2019: T2D Hba1c 53 Tot Cholesterol 3.6, HDL 1.2, LDL 1.9, Trig 1.93
Controlling with LCHF 'Way Of Eating' (no diet/hunger) plus occasional TRE or IF. No meds, no additional exercise.

August 2019: Pre-Diabetic Hba1c 45 Tot Chol 5.0, HDL 1.33, LDL 1.97 (with D Feldman Protocol), Trig 3.74, ACR 3.2

May 2020: Pre-Diabetic HbA1c 44 Tot Chol 7.4, HDL 1.42, LDL 4.62 (without D Feldman Protocol), Trig 1.75 - so good control of HbA1C, nice increase in HDL, nice (expected) reduction in Trigs but surprising large increase in LDL. - Perhaps I'm a super-responder.
November 2020 : HbA1C 37 (normal) Tot Chol 7.7 HDL 2.17 LDL 5.02 Trig 1.13 - Now in normal HbA1C range, both HDL and triglycerides are improved, LDL continues to rise.
