2011 Blood Test Results

July 30, 2011 · 3 comments

I’m going to make this short and sweet. I’m in a funk, I haven’t been writing and I certainly haven’t been eating well and/or exercising. I learned nothing from last year’s poor blood test and here I am another year later (well, I guess about 9 months later) and things are slowly getting worse.

2006 Blood Test Results
2007 Blood Test Results
2008 Blood Test Results (skipped - bad, bad boy)
2009 Blood Test Results
2010 Blood Test Results

I removed the ranges to make the results easier to read:

Year 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011
Test Value Value Value Value Value Value
Glucose 89 87 NA 93 111 118
Cholesterol 182 164 NA 160 172 169
LDL-Cholesterol 128 116.4 NA 105 112.8 118
rev Triglycerides 90 63 NA 80 116 106
HDL-Cholesterol 36 35 NA 39 36 29

I really don’t know why this is so hard.

It is difficult, and a lot of it has to do with your genetic make up and not necessarily with what you are eating or how you are exercising. My total cholesterol is very good, but my good cholesterol isn’t as high as my doctor would like. It is very hard to raise good cholesterol unfortunately. What are you most worried about - the glucose? Is there diabetes in your family? What does your doctor say.

Please don’t beat yourself up, just start from where you are and move forward one day at a time. At least you are going to the doctor and having the tests done - if you have read my blog lately you will see that going for regular blood work has basically saved my life.

I feel ya. I should have know listening to typical-advise wouldn’t work for me. I’ve watched my dad listen to medical advise and see his blood work get worse.

With his genetics avoiding carbs (specifically processed carbs) brought all the numbers back in line. Research is still a bit unclear, but more and more studies are pointing to carbs (processed and grains) causing problems.

I’ve started to limit carbs from grains. Something has got to change.

Hang in there.

This post is long, but has some intriguing information.

Then here is an article with a bit more tactical suggestions:

Again YMMV, but this is the direction I’m heading. Why not take the journey (virtually) together?
