So I got my lab results back during lunch. Overall, very good news with the blood sugar results. The lipid panel was a mixed bag.
Comparing with the October test...
Serum Glucose: 87 (down from 238)
Hemoglobin A1c: 5.6 (down from 12.5)
Est. Avg. Glucose: 114 (down from 312)
Total Cholesterol: 205 (up from 195)
Triglycerides: 148 (way down from 330)
HDL: 41 (up from 34)
LDL: 137 (up from 95)
VLDL: 30 (down from 66)
LDL/HDL Ratio: 3.3 (up from 2.8)
So to recap, my glucose is still just slightly high, but in a near normal range. My wife's is 5.4 and she's not diabetic, so I'm very happy. It was also explained to me that it's reading a little high because A1c covers the previous 2-4 months and I didn't start this diet until November, so it's still picking up some of the bad mojo from 3-4 months back.
Cholesterol seems somewhat high, but I'm not terribly worried about that. From the reading I've been doing, total and LDL cholesterol are essentially meaningless numbers. HDL and small particle LDL is what really matters. Triglycerides are less than half of what they were previously, which is great. I still need to work on that a little more, though.
Not bad for a guy who eats a dozen or more eggs a week.
