I got some of the results of my blood work back today. They were good but not exactly what I had hoped for. I dropped my triglycerides went down over 100 pts and my good cholesterol levels went up and the bad went down. This was all good. My thyroid levels were up which is good as the meds have helped and my thyroid is working much better. Will have to stay on meds for that for now.
The biggest thing that was of concern was hemoglobin A1c which determines if you are diabetic or not. Mine stayed at 5.7 but she said all of my other blood sugar tests had improved greatly. See at 5.7 or lower I am at a decreased risk of diabetes and at 5.7 and above I am at an increased risk of diabetes. For right now I am still good. I will retest again in Sept. She told me I am doing a great job and to keep doing what I have been doing and I should be good. Diabetes runs in my family so I am doing all I can to try to stop this from happening to me.
I have posted before and after pictures of me so you can see if you can tell a difference in me. I apologize if they are sideways or upside down, but I couldn't get them to turn and stay that way. Let me know what you think.
