I got good grades this time!!! Back in December there were some questions on my liver functions (surprise) and my cholesterol stuff. So on my re-visit a week or so ago we had ANOTHER blood test. This time I did not drink the night before (last time was by accident)... we also checked other things to make sure... so here it goes for all you old shits like me:
Liver, Kidney, Electrolytes: Acceptable - Liver mildly elevated, will monitor (duh!)
Fasting Blood Sugar: 93 (goal 80-100)
Total Cholesterol: 194 (remember, not too long ago it was 274)
HDL (good stuff): 71- goal is greater than 40
LDL (bad stuff): 112- goal is less than 100 (kinda close)
Triglycerides: 55-goal is less than 150
Hepatitis Panel was also done (liver related I am sure)... it was good.
"Labs are stable. Mildly elevated liver tests. We will continue to monitor." (I have had fatty liver way before days of drinking and so has my dad)". "Eat healthy, decrease weight and increase exercise. See me in 8 weeks for monitoring of phentermine"
According to the scales there I had lost a 3 or 4 pounds (note to self, wear even lighter clothes next time and do not drink so much water)
YAY ME!! I know I still have some things to work on, but this is much better result than I anticipated. So, I will focus more on the shit and get it done.
