The good news is that my rheumatoid arthritis test came back negative. My doc and I had it done just to rule it out, but I was a little worried. There are auto-immune disorders in my family history.
My HDL is up, so that is good too, although I am looking at lab work from two different sites.
My LDL is also up. I'm not sure why. I've been eating better and exercising, so I had expected it to go down. According to my father, there is no history of cholesterol issues on his side of the family. I can't remember if I asked my aunt, I think I did and there wasn't anything on that side either.
It does give me extra motivation to get moving and make healthy food choices. I have my nutrition tracker set to show my cholesterol too. I've been slacking in tracking, so just need to get back on board.
