At the end of February, just before I started my low-carb diet I took a comprehensive blood test. I took a second test yesterday.
During this time I didn’t take my Statins and my Metphormin. A first break after 10 years, so I was worried I’d be exposed without my “protective” pills.
And guess what?
- my A1c went down to 5.0 from 5.5
- Cholesterol went up to 188 from 130 — which is the desired level for brain health — I thank you for pointing out that my Chl. was way too low!
- HDL ratio up to 4.0 from 3.3 (well, b/c my Chl. is now higher)
- LDL up to 126 from 62 — still in the OK range
- Tri down to 75 from 143
First time in 25 years that my blood profile looks balanced!
Thanks! I hope life in France is what you wanted,
