I was at my 6 month visit (w/the Doc) & everything was fine except 2 things came up: I gained 8# since Aug. & my LDL went from 72 to 82. Now I thought anything under 100 was good, but he told me since I was diabetic the goal was to be <70. Now he's known I've been T2 since Oct.'11 WTH?

Howdy Oneshot!

It might be that your Dr had a different set of numbers he looked for or since you were going the wrong way with your numbers that he'd try to stop your slide toward the bad, or worse numbers.
