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.
Blood sugar 130 (While in the hospital, it was 344 with injections to bring it down. I was taking Metformin to reach 130 by July 25)
HDL Cholesterol 42
LDL Cholesterol 155
Non HDL Cholesterol 184
Total Cholesterol 226
Cholesterol ration 5.4
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)
Non HDL Cholesterol 150
Total Cholesterol 198
Cholesterol ratio 4.1
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!
