Yet another check up

    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

    Acutal Target
    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
