Just wondering what your thoughts are on my latest lab results. This was an experiment on myself to see which diet lends itself to better lab results. Here's what I have.
Nov 8 2007 (Low Carb Diet for the full year)
TRIGLYCERIDES 89 mg/dL <150
CHOLESTEROL, TOTAL 217 mg/dL 125-200
HDL CHOLESTEROL 101 mg/dL > OR = 40
LDL-CHOLESTEROL 98 <130
CHOL/HDLC RATIO 2.1 (calc) < OR = 5.0
Dec. 23 2008 (Vegan Diet for the full year)
TRIGLYCERIDES 105 mg/dL <150
CHOLESTEROL, TOTAL 199 mg/dL 125-200
HDL CHOLESTEROL 89 mg/dL > OR = 46
LDL-CHOLESTEROL 89 <130
CHOL/HDLC RATIO 2.2 (calc) < OR = 5.0
The results are both fine but on a vegan diet I did expect the triglycercides to drop even more and the HDL to go up more. Oh well, the results are still just fine.
The rest of the results were fine. My A1c went from 5.3 to 5.4.
Have no fear, I will not be going back to a low carb diet. I love the Vegan diet and that's where I'm staying. But, I am very curious as to why the results turned out the way they did.
Anyone have any ideas?
