My cholesterol is down from 6.8 to 4.9 but my HBC1A Test was up to 36 or 6.1 mmol/l from 5 mmol/l last July. I am due have my cholesterol checked again in November. I still put the reduction down to THD as i started doing this eating plan in May so it looking good. I will see the diabetic nurse in a years time. They will do fasting glucose test with all the others they do in November. Not sure who I'll see as the normal nurse retired just after Christmas but I didnt find out until Thursday.
