Default Test results -- made it into the 4% Club!!!

I am astonished. Got the results from last week's test - 4.9%
I really was expecting a higher A1c than last year simply because I've been having to ingest an antacid that has some sugar in it. I'm doing a happy dance!

Cholesterol was fine. HDL up to 54 (and this is without exercise, so I'm very happy indeed about this level); Trigs 99 (down from 143 last year). LDL 215 (got the call from office that I need to be on a statin -- NOT!)

From experience, I know that my LDL is the Type A (large, fluffy) particles and not a problem. For those of you new to LCHF, it is typical that this way of eating will slowly but surely change the LDL from the small, dense, dangerous particles to Type A. There is a test for particle size that I did have done a couple years ago, so I know.

It is interesting that on the lab report, the item called "Risk Factor" is listed at 5.0 (range 3.6-7.6). Even with the high LDL. Maybe the doctor didn't read that line!
