I don't yet have all my test results back, but I do have some.
I was "negative" on the celiac panel (I plan to ask for copies of my actual numbers.)
"Low" on Vitamin D - Apparently the doctor wants to put me on 50,000 'unit' Vitamin D pills. To be taken once per week.
The thing that really bothers me is my cholesterol results. I had slightly high before and was able to lower it with cutting back on carbs. But this time it is worse than ever. :/
LDL = 150 HDL = 52 Cholesterol = 235
This is very upsetting. I know I haven't been watching my carbs as closely, but still, this is very bad. I need to be at a total of less than 200. All the sheet says is to "decrease fat, increase fiber." Not helpful at all...
Anyone else have high cholesterol issues? It runs in my family, my father had to have triple bypass some years back and is still on statins for cholesterol. Statins are awful! I do NOT want to end up on them!
I'm going to get back into really watching my carbs. That did help me once before with my cholesterol levels. I have read that LDL can be released if there is damage in the body. Is this true? Maybe I need to heal my intestines? I'm just worried and feel a little lost. :/
Thanks for reading.
PS - My Thyroid is apparently 'normal'. TSH = 2.418
