I recently got some bloodwork done, and would really appreciate any input from the Paleo community. I got my bloodwork back directly from my lab, and feel like I'm wasting my time to go over the results with my doctor. I think the paleo community here could offer me better input!
I'd say I eat paleo 85% of the time. My big flaw might be beer a few times a week. I otherwise stick to paleo foods. I take fish oil and vitamin D regularly. Lately I've gotten myself very lean.. maybe 7-8% bodyfat
I am 30 years old and have diabetes (type 1), so I take insulin. But due to the paleo diet, I take very little doses of insulin... sometimes none at meals
Anyways, here is my bloodwork--
Chol tot-- 191
LDL - 110
A1C- 6.2 -- this is acceptable to some, but really high for me! I am normally in the low 5's. I have been drinking (non paleo) artifically sweetened drinks a lot lately. Perhaps this is the cause of my high A1C?
If anyone can offer any input on my cholesterol & a1c results, I'd appreate it! Thanks!
