    Peace of mind can go a long way towards alleviating unnecessary stress. Mat’s the best!
    Phase 1 makes me feel like my vibrating nervous system has been switched off. Blissful calm.

    It makes you wonder if the medics understand the figures.

    Epidemiological studies show people with higher than recommended cholesterol levels live longer and have fewer heart attacks.

    HBA1C of 5.5 is in the OK range I think. Mine is 5.3 and GP is quite happy with that.

    Mat, would you translate my cholesterol for me too please?
    I rang for my results today having had a blood test for thyroid and cholesterol. This is what I could get out of the receptionist:
    Total 9.7
    HDL 1.8
    Ratio 5.4

    Many thanks. Jaki

    Hi Jaki,

    I'll do this tomorrow morning if that is OK with you.

    The laptop is away for the night and it is a little tricky on the phone.

    Looking at it though you will need to get your triglyceride levels.

    They *will* have measured this.

    I'd definitely ask for the full figures! But I *do* need the Triglyceride figure for any analysis (that is a really key marker for most things.) High TG usually means a high carb diet and, high HDL and low TG usually means a low carb high fat diet.

    Thanks Mat. I just rang again for results and they have no triglyceride result - just those 3 🙁

    I’ve been off the low carb wagon this year 🙁 too many phase 3 days!
