  • Blood work advice needed.

    Hi all

    I've been following a Paleo diet for the last two years and have noticed great improvements in body composition and energy, however I received the results of my recent blood tests yesterday and am confused when compared to last years. I'd appreciate any advice and explanation of the results. I'm a 55 year old male, 5'8", well muscled, supposedly in good health and currently weighing approx 200lbs. my weight has been fairly constant for years although I am trading fat for muscle. I don't smoke and consume little alcohol and shift heavy weights 2/3 times a week.

    Cholesterol Level (XE2eD) 5.9 mmol/L 5.3 mmol/L
    Triglyceride level (XE2q9) 1.4 mmol/L 2.8 mmol/L
    HDL Level (44P5) 1.29 mmol/L 1.06 mmol/L
    LDL Level (44P6) 3.98 mmol/L 2.97 mmol/L
    total cholesterol : HDL ratio (44PF) 4.6 5.0

    Liver Function

    bilirubin Level 26 umol/L 25 umol/L

    Everything else is fine. Any advice or help gratefully appreciated.
