  • Blood Test

    Hey guys, just got my blood test results:

    Glucose: 86 mg/dL
    Glycolized Haemoglobin (HbA1c): 5.1%
    Basal Insulin: 3.3 µU/mL

    Ultra-Sensitive C-reactive protein (HS-CRP): 0.1 mg/L

    Total Cholesterol: 202 mg/dL
    HDL: 61 mg/dL
    LDL: 129 mg/dL
    TRIGS: 59 mg/dL
    Lp (a): 14.2 mg/dL

    Ratios:

    Total /HDL: 3.3
    TRIG/HDL: 0.96
    LDL/HDL: 2.11

    Calculating LDL with the Iranian Equation:

    (Total/1.19) + (Trig/1.9) - (HDL/1.1) -38 = LDL
    (202/1.19) + (59/1.9) - (61/1.1) - 38 = LDL

    "Iranian" LDL = 218.25 mg/dL

    I've been strict primal for around two years, except for the occasional dairy/nuts binges. My typical diet is VLC (10-30g approx), where Saturated/Mono-unsaturated fat accounts for 75-80% of the total calories. I am generally an obscene glutton.

    Seems we are on the right path folks

      Yes, sorry. Edited accordingly.

      Test says ideal = <0.5
      Do you disagree?

        No that's really good. I suppose that's the kind of level of non-pwning oneself with one's own immune system that a diet of mostly meat and good fat affords.

              Correction:

              My "Iranian" LDL should be: 106.54 mg/dL. Copy/pasted the wrong number.

                That's the lowest crp I've ever seen. What a banner day....both the highest and the lowest on which I've laid my eyes. LOL.

                Anyhoo, good 'work'.

                        These are great numbers. Great to see more info on people who have been doing Primal for > 1 year.
