My last doctor visit in June showed I’m still low on Vitamin D and my cholesterol went up a bit. It’s not super high but enough for my doctor to want me on a low dose of statin. With that said, I don’t believe cholesterol numbers are all that, meaning, for me I’m focusing on my HDL and Triglycerides. From the research I’ve done I don’t believe the LDL and total numbers are the say all.
I haven’t been keeping to my healthy way of eating and I know that’s why my cholesterol has risen some. I have stayed low-carb BUT I’ve added in Ezekiel bread, Joseph’s Pita bread, low carb tortillas, and other frankin foods. I need to stop this frankin food eating insanity!
And I think I’ve been eating too many carb as well. So, I’m motivated to get back to the basics. Eating all God made food again. I am rereading my Atkins’ books and have added a few more to my library.
I have also gained 5lbs back. I ‘m determined to lose the 5lbs and lower my cholesterol as well (mosty for the doctor, I don’t plan on taking any medication).
