My Blood Work

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

I recently had a full blood and urine screen for a life insurance application and I just got the results yesterday of the blood work. Some of this stuff I have no idea what it means and I've done a little bit of research, and I need to do more... but drum roll please... here are the results.

GFR (something to do with the kidneys and protein) 77.06 ml/m^2 (this is a good #)
Glucose 86 mg/dl
Protein 7.2 g/dl
Cholesterol 155 mg/dl
HDL 50.90 mg/dl***
LDL 93.70 mg/dl
Triglycerides 52 mg/dl

Now, there is more, but I am pressed for time so I'll have to enter that information later.

*** Note on the HDL - it's in acceptable range of 40 - 60 but I'd like to get it over 60 so I have a "plan" and I'll post that blog later too. :)

    I don't really know what all that means. But good for you! I get weak at the thought of a needle coming anywhere near my veins. I hope that your health is improving. : )
