Just got my latest results. Firstly HbA1C is up to 6.2 from 5.8 so not very happy but it could be worse. I will post elsewhere about maintaining nutritional ketosis but still running higher BG levels. Now the lipid profiles: LDL _____________________________ 4.10 _________Satisfactory. No further action. HDL ____________________________ 1.83 _________Satisfactory. No further action. (Above high reference limit.) Triglycerides ____________________ 1.51 _________Normal. No further action. Total cholesterol ________________ 6.62 _________Abnormal (action required notes that I have a review booked). Cholesterol/HDL ratio ___________ 3.62 _________Satisfactory. No further action. (Part of HDL report.) Leaving aside for the moment that different software systems have different ranges programmed in for good, less good and bad, a quick run through the results there show that each individual component of my lipid profile is either satisfactory or good with no further action required. However my total cholesterol shows as abnormal. I do note that there was no reference level given for LDL in the lab test report. If I were to take the report as gospel including all the recommendations then all the individual components are satisfactory or normal but the total of them all is not. Which is perhaps not strictly logical. http://www.diabetes.co.uk/cholesterol-to-hdl-ratio-calculator.html says that a Total/HDL ratio of less than 4 is considered to be healthy and a ratio of over 6 is considered to be high risk. So all the indications is that my blood is pumped full of cholesterol (LCHF, nutritional ketosis, uh, duh!) but all the ratios seem to be O.K. It will be interesting to see what they suggest I change. Statins? Sorry, that is my tin ear. Try shouting a little louder? No, still not getting through.
