Blood work results
Mon, 08-02-2010 - 1:18pm

Hello everyone. I had bloodwork done last week and just got the results back so I thought i'd post them because I feel if it wasnt for my lifestyle change I wouldn't have gotten the results I did. :)

Jan 2010.....A1C- 6.54, Thryoid-5.46, Cholesterol-162, Triglycerides-393

July 2010.....A1C-6.3, Thyroid-7.55, Cholesterol-175, Triglycerides-243

So I know that my A1C didn't drop much but i figure hey the better I get at watching what I eat and cleaner eating the better it will get. Dr decided to leave the metformin at 2000 a day and see where I am in 3 months with it. The thyroid really went up so she is upping the medicine to 88mg a day and that will be rechecked in 3 months also. The cholesterol well it went up but still in normal range they said. The triglycerides went down the most and im not on any meds for that! I was so shocked!!! I am hoping with more weight and better food choices it will keep going down!!!

So not only have I lost weight which is a plus my body seems to be healing itsself in some way right?! I dont care much about the number on the scale I really just wanna see a healthier me if if Im say 250 pounds ya know?

I just wanted to share! :)
