Hi Guys Just had my new blood results and it has thrown up a few red flags. I have obviously got carried away with the whole High Fat part of my diet. My A1C is 37 so up 2 points not too bad. My Lipid panel in April was Cholestrol 5.5 HDL 4.1 LDL 1.28 TriG's 1.01 HDL to TriG ratio: .246 My new Cholestrol reads as follows: Cholestrol 6.9 HDL 1.54 LDL 4.2 TriG's 2.45 HDL to TriG Ratio: 1.59 So an inverse of the HDL and LDL My diet has changed 'slightly' in that period, I have started drinking Carte Noir Coffee with Two tsp whipped cream per cup. Maybe 4 cups per day. My nighttime treat was 1 square of 81% Equadorian Dark Choc (Lidl). Sadly this crept up to 2/3 squares at night and then a few crept in during the day......really sneaky how these things can blind-side a person I have been eating 4/5 small strawberries with 2 tsp whipped cream per day, once and sometimes twice a day. I eat a few slices of Mature Cheddar from the Triangular Block (Lidl) on 2 Jacobs WheatSnap crackers once or twice a day. and I normally have 2 Bacon Rashers grilled,1 Bratwurst Sausage (85% Pork) 1 grilled Tomato 1 egg fried and 2 Mushrooms once every 2 0r 3 days. I eat red meat (a steak or 2 small Lidl quarter pounders) maybe twice a week. I am a 63 Year old Male 5' 10" tall. I lost 4.5 St last year, i had risen to 16St 8lbs and i am currently 12St 2.lbs. So I am not gaining weight, but am i eating way too much fat? Is there anything in there in particular that would push up the old Lipid Panel or is it just everything? If so i have really misunderstood the whole high fat thing. My carbs are in or about 50-70 grms per day. I would appreciated any views that might help me along.
