Cholesterol Update - October '13

Friday, October 25, 2013

Total cholesterol, 254
- This number is up 24 from the last test

LDL, 159
- This number is up 26 from the last test

Triglycerides, 192
- This number is down 41 from last itme

HDL, 57
- This number is up 7 from last time

Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio: 4.5
- 0.0 to 4.4 is "normal," so I am really close there


How do I feel about this? Mixed, but I'm going to look on the positive side and keep working for improvement. I brought my triglycerides down FORTY ONE points, and I am crazy proud of that. I also raised my good cholesterol. So now I need to focus on:

- Maintaining good HDL
- Continuing to bring down triglycerides (I've cut way back on boxed treats)
- Lowering LDL
