Hey all, I know people ask this all the time, but I thought I'd put out my results.
Suffice it to say, I was considered borderline back in May 2007, and my doc wanted me to start statins (I refused).
Well, I decided to go full Primal+dairy back on Feb 1st 2009. (Actually dropped dairy just after the blood was drawn a month ago)
Having heard all the success stories, I was kind of hoping to see lower LDL levels myself. I'm happy my HDL went up, and my TRI's went down, and that ratio seems very good.
But the LDL increase seems a bit more than I expected.
I Guess I'm just looking for feedback, whether I should be worried... Knowing what I know now, I really don't want to go back to my old ways.
Here's a comparison, I think I converted the numbers correctly. Our labs use SI numbers up here.
HDL: 1.07 (41.29)
TG: 1.15 (101.86)
LDL: 3.70 (143.07) calculated
HDL: 1.23 (47.56)
TG: 0.50 (44.28)
LDL: 5.64 (218.09) calculated
I don't think we can get VAP or real LDL tests done up here in Canada, could be wrong though. If any fellow canucks know if we can, please let me know.
