Well, I finally got through to my test results. My computer has been squirrelly for quite a while now. And.... my A1c as of Sept 29 is now 5.9% down from 6.6 in June. Whooo-hoooo.

So for the rest of it I need a biochemist: My HDL has remained at 80 but my total, LDL and VLDL have gone up. So have my triglycerides which I really expected would go down.

The morning I had the blood drawn I swiped the cream cheese off the knife and popped it in my mouth when I was making the kids' breakfast. Then I remembered I was supposed to be fasting. So does anyone know if about 1 1/2 tsp of cream cheese at 7:30ish would skew my blood lipids at 11ish? Or do I need to cut back on the bacon fat and sub in more EVOO? Or follow Shuttlebop into a lower fat experiment. Watch'all think?

Are you losing weight? If so you will have to wait until you are stable to believe the lipid numbers.

Good luck,

One lab refused to do lipids when I'd only had a spoonful of food. Food intake and weight loss will both screw up our lipids panels.

My weight loss has just about stopped between this and the last test. I have lost about 15% of my body weight since mid March but most of it was in the beginning. I didn't tell the lab I'd had a spoonful of cream cheese because I forgot by the time I got there. All kinds of stuff falls out of the holes in my head.

Firstly, congratulations on the membership to the 5% A1c club. 1-1/2 spoons of cream cheese 3.5 hrs before a test will definitely interfere with your cholesterol numbers. A high score of 80 on the HDL numbers is pretty impressive too. The TG & LDL are impacted by the last meal, so don't think much about them till your next test. Remember, High Blood Sugar will affect health badly, high cholesterol might.

Also with exercise, even if you are not be losing weight, you may be losing inches. Adding muscle, while losing fat may explain the scales and would be the reason you still get taller numbers on lipids.

In my own personal experience I have to watch saturated fat and eat mostly mono like olive oil, avocado and nuts. Fish and white poultry. But that is just me. Congrats on your HDL and A1C

Thank you all. Actually My HDLs have always been good. This WoE has not changed that. It's been in the 80s or higher for more than a decade. Drs. used to tell me my total was high because my HDL was high. Probably because whatever fat I ate before I started LCHF was usually EVOO or organic canola (Don't want the GMOs or the herbicides that go with them in my food thank you) I used to eat what the powers that be would consider a "healthy diet" but I still got fat, got diabetes, got high blood pressure, got high cholesterol. I am so glad I found BloodSugar101 and this forum.

LCHF will change the composition of LDL to the large particles.

My LDL is high-ish but I insisted on a particle size test, which showed they were the large, fluffy kind, which is not a concern - although I had to tell my doctor about it and she still wasn't all that sure about the results. It is an expensive test and only certain labs can run it (which my dr. didn't know) and it may or may not be covered by insurance.

I wouldn't have it run until you've been on LCHF for a year or so.
