As an update I was diagnosed w/ type 2 diabetes in early June, see my blood work progress below:

June Results (Changed Diet and exercise before august appt)
A1C 11.6
Tri 248
HDL 28
Total Cho 262

August Results (Diet, Exercise and 500 MG of Metformin ER to lower my A1C before December blood work)
A1C 6.8
Tri 92
HDL 41
Total Cho 149

December Results (Maintain same for February test)

Overall have lost over 25 pounds, I am 6'0" and now weight in at a whopping 162, Doc says lets not lose to much more.

That is awesome. Hard work does pay off. Bet you feel so much better? I know i do and that's what keeps me motivated. :-)

Those are fantastic results. You have a lot to be joyful about this holiday. One thing that helps HDL is exercise and I believe for me, drinking home made almond milk helped a lot. Or maybe just eating a handful of almonds every day. give it a try.
