These are blood test results I got back today that were taken on 2/21. I have nothing to compare them to. I started eating strictly Paleo the first of the year. I understand that a month and three weeks is hardly enough time for results to come about, but I'd appreciate it if you guys could give me a quick interpretation of these.
Fasting Glucose: 67 mg/dL
Total Cholesterol: 267 mg/dL
Triglycerides: 109 mg/dL
HDL: 48 mg/dL
HA1C: 4.9 %T.Hgb
Unfortunately I don't see any CRP numbers. There are a few things which are high (not counting my Total Cholesterol) according to the report:
Calcium - CA: 10.5 mg/dL (8.6-10.2)
Albumin - ALB: 5.2 g/dL (3.6-5.1)
Total Bilirubin: 2.3 mg/dL (0.2-1.2)
I'd hoped to see my triglycerides lower, and my HDL higher, and when I told my family about my 267 Total Cholestrol they about hit the roof.
If you would like any other levels let me know. The tests that were ordered are: CBC W/DIFF AND W/PLAT, COMP. METABOLIC WITH EGFR, LIPID PANEL, and HEMOGOLBIN A1C W/ EAG
Just for some background:
I am a 22 year old male, 5'11, 184lbs (was 200lbs first of the year).
I typically fast about 16 hours a day, sometimes closer to 24.
Generally, I Eat:
3 eggs fried in butter. On occasion, I'll have a few strips of bacon as well.
Avocado (or Guacamole) just by itself, with a can of tuna or maybe a kipper snack.
A generous helping of meat (steak, chicken, pork, whatever I'm in the mood for)
Occasionally I'll eat some berries with cream.
I've taken to whipping up some heavy cream, putting a tiny dribble of maple syrup in there, and eating just that.
Chocolate on occasion
Vegetables smothered in butter
Sometimes I'll partake in cheese too!
I'm not too worried about my results, and I feel awesome eating how I've been eating. For the first time in forever I'm actually forgetting to eat and not feeling hungry all day. Of course, the family still worries! I'd very much appreciate any feedback you've got.
