Another three months, another check up.
Lots of blood tests and a raft of diabetes tests (just in case). Everything is okay. What stands out is my HDL Cholesterol (the good stuff) continues to move up to 1.4 mmol/l from 1.2. This has made a big change to my Total/HDL ratio, which is now 2.9 — not bad. I credit that to my homemade muesli. Whoever thought I’d be “knitting my own muesli.
Blood pressure is pretty stable at 132⁄85—but it could be better yet. More exercise and less eating is needed.
Overall, a big tick from Doc Budelmann. Quick summary then
|Total cholesterol||4.0 mmol/l||< 5.0|
|HDL cholesterol||1.4 mmol/l||> 1.0|
|LDL cholesterol||2.3 mmol/l||< 3.0|
|Triglyceride||0.8 mmol/l||< 2.0|
|Total/HDL ratio||2.9||< 4.5|
