So the reason why I started paleo was that I was going through a diabetes scare. I was was frequently peeing 5-6 times a night, tired all the time, and my vision was going hard and fast. The blindness came up about a week before a vacation and I decided after the vacation I would start on my primal journey. Well 2 weeks ago I went to the doctors to get a requisition for blood work. Talked my doctor through my symptoms and told him about paleo. Got a much different response than I expected. Doc was not surprised at all that eating the way I had been had good effects on me and even congratulated me on my weightloss. He also told me that it is very likely that I had/have developed diabetes. Well my bloodwork came back. If I did have it it's now gone! Woo! Not to mention that I had to chase my doctor's office to get my results because they hadn't planned on calling me: everything came back normal. I forgot to bring my blood work to work so I can scan it and show you guys but I do have my cholestorol numbers in my blackberry.
Cholestorol 3.89 mmol/L (Healthy Range is anything under 5.2 mmol/L)
LDL 2.98 ("Optimal" range 2.6-3.3)
HDL 0.81 (Considered poor... Guess I need to up my omega 3's)
And there you have it folks!
