Hello dear friends, me again just logging on with my annual blood results. Up a point to 45, which is what I expected, being somewhat distracted by the onset of CLL (which is still dormant, thank goodness). I doubt if my HbA1C will ever go much lower but I'll be making sure it doesn't go any higher. Eating is still an exciting adventure and exercise has broadened with a summer kayaking course (water's warmer). I'm especially pleased with the cholesterol results, having started statins again in March. Here's what hughcalc http://www.hughcalc.org/chol-si.php says ...
