Bloodwork Comes In!

So, after 3 weeks of waiting for the results of my blood test, it finally came in today. Overall, I’m pleased with the results. However, it seems that my total cholesterol is on the high side which I wasn’t expecting. Here are the results:

Fasting Glucose: 94 Normal Range: 70-105

Total Cholesterol: 274 Normal Range: 0-200

HDL Cholesterol: 53 Normal Range: 40-60

Non HDL Cholesterol: 221 Normal Range: 0-160

LDL Cholesterol: 206 Normal Range: 0-130

Triglycerides: 75 Normal Range: 0-150

Now that I have my results (finally), I can get my consult underway with Amy and see what she thinks of these numbers. I’m a little upset about my total cholesterol numbers, but overall, I’m happy with the results since my fasting glucose and trigs are well within the healthy range. I’m still waiting for my old blood work to compare to but I’ll post those as soon as I get them.

*UPDATE*  I was able to dig up my old blood work from two years ago when I wasn’t eating a paleo diet.  Unfortunately, I only was able to get a basic lipid panel that contains: Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides.  The results are as follows:

Total Cholesterol: 198

HDL Cholesterol: 45

LDL Cholesterol: 117

Triglycerides: 178

So as you can see from these results compared to the most recent test, that my overall cholesterol numbers went up, but my Triglycerides went down by over 100 points, which I’m ecstatic about.  We’ll see how my results change in future tests.

  1. I think your total cholesterol is not very concerning. I’d be interested to see what your LDL particle size is like, however.

  2. It’s funny you should mention that because that’s exactly what Amy Kubal said when I talked to her. Unfortunately, I didn’t ask for those results this time around. I will in the future for sure.
