Default Test Results at 3 months post diagnosis - More improvements

I have a scheduled doctor's visit on Tuesday. I had to go for my tests before that, which I did today. Here are my test results.

I broke into (barely) the 5% club but honestly I was expecting a much lower HbA1C

The numbers in the bracket are what I got last month (at 2 months from DX)

1. HbA1c has dropped from 12.7(Dx) to 5.9 (6.8) but

2. Total Cholestrol dropped from 243(Dx) to 190 (195)

3. LDL dropped from 186(Dx) to 133 (123) but

4. HDL increased from 29(Dx) to 36 (34)

5. Triglicirides dropped from 232(Dx) to 121 (197)

6. Fasting today at the lab was 93

7. Ketones detected (+) in urine

8. The Urine Routine has not detected protein this time but waiting for MAU report

9. The MAU report is awaited. Will update the thread later tonight

10. Lost 40 Lbs so far. 45 more to go !


Observations / Concerns/ Your comments requested


1. LDL has dropped over a 3 month period but it has actually has gone up in the last one month.My LDL was 123 at a random test one month back (It's gone up by 10 points). I was expecting it to drop further.

2. Ketones in Urine. Is this normal because of the ketogenic diet ? should I be worried ?

3. How the heck is my HbA1C 5.9 ? That is a mean blood sugar level of 122. I've hardly had a reading over 120 for a long time. I have been averaging 103 for the last three months and I test 5-6 times a day. There is no way in the world my average BG can be 122 over the last 3 months. (can the 4th month make an impact ?)





I was expecting a HbA1c of 5.3, I would have been happy at 5.5, not this. Will try my luck again next time


Tony

It's still a great HbA1c reading

I know it can be frustrating when you dont reach a goal, but its not far off

(Correction : 3months)
Thanks JT. I wanted to do better on the LDL and HbA1c. But my body thought - lets leave it for next time

Mum's fasting is still high. Today morning we saw a 199. (we had increased her basal last night) but I couldnt get her to go for that walk. I will today.

She's just not ready to eat the peanut butter at night time too. I'll try to force her to eat an egg tonight before she sleeps. Parents are difficult sometimes. But I understand that I am trying to tell her that all she has learnt for 25 years is distorted. There's no easy way to communicate that ...

I believe that you can do it!! you are very focus from your previous postings..

Yes, parents can be hard to ask them to do the things we want them to do.. it's isn't easy at times, we understands.. Just more time of talking and patience.. Sometimes see what they really like and promise to do it to pursue them.. It takes alot of patience but end of day, its worth it.

You have the POWER in your hands!

That's wonderful! That's a GIGANTIC drop! I hope you are really proud of you as you obviously worked very hard to have such good results in all your tests. Congrats!

That's fantastic, Tony! You did a good thing, just had your goal a bit too high, but you've found what you can do when you are focused.

No one has answered your question about ketones I see, so I will do that...they are to be expected when you low carb and it's a good thing. I find I'm not nearly so hungry when I'm in a ketonic state, so keep it up.

I'm so proud of you!

Guys, I'm so relieved. I just got my MAU report

MICRO-ALBUMIN = 17 (should be < 20)
CREATININE, URINE = 68
RATIO = 25 (should be < 30)

So it means that there's no protein in the urine, which if you guys remember was the major panic point for me a month back. The ratio has dropped from 96 to 35 to 25. I am mighty pleased with this.

Now the new issue for me is the LDL increase. Whats with that ? What do i do for this ? Less saturated fat probably ?

Do I need to worry about the ketones in my urine ?

Lets see how my doctor responds on Tuesday

Overall I am very pleased with my performance in this exam, hoping to see more improvements in 3 months again

Tony

Thanks Patdart for your wishes and clarifying the question about the ketones

Tony, to take your A1c down from 12.7 and make it into the 5% club in 3 months is fantastic. Congratulations.
