  • Blood tests back - I think I may be invincible.

    Just got my blood tests back, full battery of tests which they seem to do here in Canada from time time.

    Total Cholesterol 4.47 mmol/L 173 mg/dl
    Trigliceride 0.65 mmol/L 57 mg/dl
    HDL 2.01 mmol/L 77.7 mg/dl
    LDL 2.16 mmol/L 83.5 mg/dl

    Total/HDL 2.2


    Everything was measured in mmol/L I used an online calculator to convert md/dl

    All other tests were well within normal levels except for creatine which was high as was expected because I work out.

    I only wish I had test from pre-Primal

            Miss Jecka, I think that this is a really valuable tool. Even though I have always had a low cholesterol, the doubts have crept in since going primal and eating such a HUGE amount of fat. In fact so many of my friends have raised this fact many a time ! What is it doing to your heart, your cholesterol.....yaddy yaddy yar.....
            I can now back up my own results with facts. It was interesting when I rang the Doctors surgery to get a blood test booked, the nurse tut-tutted as I gave her a run down of my new 4 month eating regime. Then when I rang for my results...... SURPRISE
            Brilliant !!!!

              That's really exciting!

              I'm just scared I'm going to expect some drastic change and end up being disappointed as I usually am to see that nothing is different. When I lost 40 pounds, my total cholesterol was a whopping 1 mg/dl less (from 227mg/dl to 226mg/dl) than before I'd lost the weight. I was extremely upset at that, because I figured if I lost weight I'd finally get in the normal range!

              Hopefully I'll please myself at last... and surprise my doctor and family!

                  Someone made a reference to this article http://chriskresser.com/the-most-imp...ut-cholesterol which links to associated studies. It is well worth a read, it really show how good primal eating is.

                    how does that translate into the numbers I get from my tests which are not, like, 2.3 , 1.8 and whatnot--they are like 45, 87, 121, etc. Whole numbers.

                      The first post in this series is possibly the answer to your question. However not sure how to convert them sorry

                        Congrats! My numbers got better, too! LDL stayed about the same from Pre-Primal, but HDL went from the 50's to the 90's. And I LOVE the 90's! Sure, total cholesterol winds up around 260, but the ratios are good and it's mostly meaningless, anyway!

                          I have posted both in mine simple googled and came up with a few hits ...Canada records in mmol/l but I also included mg/dl on my OP

                          @Knifegill...I hear you on ratios HDL up, triglicerides down all good (unless you are the doc I have - I need a new doc)

                            Here are my results from blood tests taken back in March. I had begun exercising at least twice a week and was eating low carb but yet to discover Primal.

                            Total cholesterol 5.1 (nurse said this was too high, target should be 4).

                            HDL 1.58
                            LDL 3.3
                            Triglycerides 0.5

                            I thought these results were quite good (except LDL) and I would be interested to know what they would be now that I have eaten primal for 2 1/2 months, I post them here in case I ever get a repeat done.

                            Also, I weighed about 65kg then, now closer to 60.

                              I don't know what mine are yet. My boyfriend is getting a blood test today. He's not primal, but he eats what I cook him. Last night I gave him bacon and pesto on wheat noodles. Now I'm afraid his cholesterol numbers will be really bad, thanks to me.
