I started Primal/Paleo around 4 months ago, started going to the gym 2-3 times a week and have successfully shed 10 pounds. However, when I got my blood test, I was surprised to see that both my Uric Acid (5.74) and Cholesterol (247.88) levels have shot up! I used to have normal numbers for each and now they're both borderline. They're even higher than my mom's and she eats grains and sweets all the time.
That being said, it was only a total cholesterol test so I'm getting a more detailed blood test soon with HDL and LDL levels. The thing is, I eat mainly vegetables, fatty fish, citrus fruits so this really frustrates and disappoints me. I do admit to eating around 2 oz of nuts a day so is that to blame for the uric acid?
P.S. My heartbeat has also lowered to 51bpm. They say this isn't a concern but I'm wondering if this is related to the other results?
