The lab work is back. I just got off the phone with my doctor, who read me the results. Buckle up!
Total cholesterol: dropped 29 points and into the goal range!
–>HDL (good cholesterol): was in healthy range before, but could have been better — up 2 points
–>LDL (bad cholesterol): dropped 17 points and below the goal!
Total triglycerides: dropped 71 points and WAY below the goal!
–>A1C: dropped 0.4 and below the target!
–>Fasting sugar: dropped 23 points and below the target!
TL;DR version: All the numbers went significantly the right way, and I am no longer anywhere near pre-diabetes.
I think I just got sustenance from that phone call. Vegetarian week be damned.
