    Okay, that was fun! To my undereducated eyes, it looks like Mr. Taubes and I are pretty similar. I wonder why? LOL! Thanks.

    Of course, if you read the bizarre thread on here about Taubes' bloodwork, you might think mine looks pretty bad, too. Fortunately, you're far smarter than that.

    Hi, again!

    Just out of interest I ran your numbers (anonymously of course!) by the Art De Vany crowd because I love numbers and we don't do this kind of bloodwork in the UK (!) and all thought they looked good but Art's comment was the funniest which I think you'll appreciate ...

    "It sounds like the labs are making out like bandits with all these useless tests. Then the doctor and pharmaceutical company come in for the rest of your money. Then you have to come back and do it all over again later to see how the numbers are doing. They are just numbers. Toss it all out. "

    :-)

    IMHO - Numbers don't matter. The only criteria of health is how you feel. Your own assessment of your sense of well-being, strength and vitality are the only ones that are applicable to you. Those numbers are not indicators of health... they are indicators of how a substance in your body compares to that subtance in other American's bodies. Is that what you really want to know, how you stack up to an unhealthy peer group? De Vany has it right on - Toss those numbers out!

    - Gut pathology is big. If you are not eating gelatin or the collagen parts of animals, do that. It helps a lot. Coconut is awesome.
    - You need more calories, much of it as coconut, some as fibrous vegetables. Coconut will decrease your glucose needs. Right now you are breaking down dietary protein to make glucose and it is keeping your blood sugar high.
    Stabby do you have a recommendation for how much coconut for a 150 # woman? And what is best - milk, oil, fresh chunks, dried, creamed?
