Good News!

So, you girls know I recently had a bout of Pancreatitis and ended up in the hospital for a few days (about a month ago) ... I just got my lab results back from a blood test I had this morning. All of the enzymes that get elevated during an attack are back to the normal range. Hopefully, that's the end of that! lol

Overall, my total Cholesterol went up (I need to work on raising HDL's and lowering the LDL's), BUT, my Triglycerides have gone way down:

April 2013 Triglycerides = 717

June 2014 Triglycerides = 191


I am really happy because this means I won't have to go on medication to lower it. I'll get another blood test in 3-6 months and hopefully by then I will have dropped a few pounds and the rest of the Cholesterol numbers will be good!

You've been eating pretty healthy so I'm surprised your cholesterol went up.

Ya, I don't know what's up with that. I'm hoping a little weight loss once I get back to the gym will take care of that. I've also got a list of foods to get when I go shopping later this week. But, I certainly am relieved. I was really hoping all this healthy eating wasn't in vain!

Yeah, going to the gym might help with all the healthy eating.  I have been doing some light weights at home every few days.  
Lol all my healthy eating is all in vain, lol!

I'm doing some weights at home, too. They're only 6 lbs. What I really need to be doing is working on my tushy!  lol

I have 5lbs and then I have to go up to 10s.  I don't have anything in between.

Omg right!  My butt cheeks are like two pancakes, lol.  I hate butt exercises though.

Yay!! Good job! You must be so relieved. So the bad cholesterol is down, but overall the number is higher? Maybe your good is just way up? Did they say?

Thank you; I am very relieved!

The nurse said my overall number went up a bit higher than recommended (by 40 points, I think) and the lousy number was higher.  It's OK, though. I'm confident I can get them all straightened out with a few months of eating right and exercise!
