To My Health!

This afternoon between work and the gym I received a call from my doctor with some results from my 3 month bloodwork. Here's the great news....!

Total Cholesterol - down from 448 in December to 225 currently.

Total Triglycerides - down from 2230 in December to 499 currently.

and the big one for diabetics...

A1C - the three month reflection of average blood sugar, down from 10.7 to 7.1! The American Diabetes Association currently recommends a level below 7.0 so you can see what the past three months of my new meds, taken appropriately, coupled with better diet and exercise had produced!

I am thankful every day for my health.

Congratulations! So proud of you! Now, if I could get my brother in law to do this well! He is a terrible diabetic and his kidneys are failing. Now docs think he is having heart problems that are related to the diabetes. Keep up the great work! You don't want things to get out of hand!
