The day after Christmas, and a 12 hour fast, I had my blood tested. The results came today:
HDL, the "good" cholesterol: 33,
LDL, the "bad" cholesterol: 128,
Creainine (kidneys): 0.8
Doctor says, overall things are fine, but that I should take fish oil supplements to raise my "good" cholesterol. HDL should be over 35.
Hmmmm, looking over these results, though, I think I am too high in the "bad" stuff, particularly the triglycerides and the glucose. I have read that diets high in carbohydrates, especially sugar, lead to increases in triglycerides. I am going to work to get those down.
