    Blood tests back - I think I may be invincible.

    Primal Fuel
    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.
