Update on my personal health KtP


Recently, I informed you all of my recent health struggles and how I intended to live a more healthy lifestyle.  I changed my diet and stepped out of owning a travel agency as major steps.  Here’s the results of my latest blood tests.

When I was diagnosed with Diabetes and Hypertension in late July I was terrified and wanted to fix my health immediately. I know the cost of uncontrolled diabetes is losing your eyes, feet and legs. I sought for dietary recommendations and met with a dietician. After the consultation I found that having a Keto Friendly eating plan would improve my health. I try to exercise by walking daily as well.  Here’s the results after slightly over 2 months.

A1c 11.1
HDL Cholesterol 42
LDL Cholesterol 155
Triglycerides 158
Non HDL Cholesterol 184

October 4
Weight 185.5
Blood sugar 97 (I stopped taking diabetes medicine after 2 weeks as it crashed my blood sugar)
A1c 6.0 (for someone with known diabetes, a value under 7 indicates that their diabetes is well controlled)
HDL Cholesterol 48 (higher is better)
LDL Cholesterol 129 (dropping is great)
Triglycerides 103
Non HDL Cholesterol 150
Total Cholesterol 198
Cholesterol ratio 4.1
Bilirubin 1.5

This was the results after just over 2 months :)  My nurse considers me “the model patient.”  I attend weekly Diabetes education classes to make sure I stay the course.  I use it as my Sugarholic support group.  My name is Kenny and I have not consumed added sugar in over 2 months.

I’ve been honored to hear from many readers that my improvements have encouraged them to get more healthy.  One of my challenge friends, Ryan, has lost 21 pounds in two months and said he is feeling really great.

I thought you might like to hear some good news!



  1. Excellent news Kenny, Congrats!

    May your success motivate you to stay on the path towards better health! Your readers are proud of you! *Chants in a whisper, Moana style* “Kenny, Kenny, Kennnnnnnnnny!!! You’re so amaziiiiiing!!!”

    Gee. Hope that wasn’t creepy! ;)

  2. That is amazing news Kenny! I’m so very happy for you. I know it is not easy. Keep up the new lifestyle changes – The Best is yet to come!

  3. Wow, I’m thrilled to hear about your continued success. Changing patterns can be challenging, but you are following a good path, and I’m so very happy to hear it’s working out for you. Please know that we are lurking out here on the FB pages and in you app, and that you have made a positive influence in our families lives. Thank you and hugs to you and your family.

  4. Thank you for taking your health so seriously, Kenny. My father in law has not taken his adult diabetes seriously. In his early 70’s he has diminished mental capacity, cannot feel his legs from the knees down and all movement is a struggle. Two years ago, he had quintuple bypass surgery. I applaud your wise choices when faced with a health crisis. Keep it up! Many congratulations!!!!

    • Thank you Susan. My wife’s Uncle lost both legs to Diabetes before it killed him. People think taking medicine is good enough, unfortunately.

  5. That is such great news. I had something similar happen to me years ago when I was working an
    unbelievable amount of hours a week. It is amazing what happens when you start to take care of YOU!. So happy for you! Keep up the great work and thanks for the update. Definitely inspiring!

  6. All your hard work has paid off. Congratulations. Making a lifestyle change can be difficult so you are such a good example to other individuals.

  7. Wow!! Congratulations!! I know from experience that diets & lifestyle changes are difficult. I wish you the best of luck with maintaining this new lifestyle for the rest of your life

  8. Congrats, Kenny. Keep up the good work. In Feb. 2016 after returning from a cruise, I looked at myself in the mirror and just did not like what I saw. I decided to give up sweets ( cookies, candy, pie, ice cream, cake, etc) and I decided to start getting some exercise. I lost 30 lbs in about 4 months. I dropped 4 pant sizes. I feel great now and my 4 grandchildren no longer beg me to play. I am in the middle of everything.

    I love your posts and really appreciate all the new folks that are helping you out. May 23rd is our next rip and I read everything you send. Thanks so much.

    Stay on your journey to a healthy lifestyle.
