Went to the Doctor this morning. Got my latest blood test results.
Cholesterol 157 total
Blood pressure 124/80
HDL 50
LDL 100
Triglycerides 33
Latest A1C is 6.3. Not as low as I would like, but well within range on diet control only. Will work on getting this down before the next visit in 6 months.
As you can see my numbers are great on the low carb (6-12-12) program I follow.
I know I get a lot of people going with the fact that I eat a lot of fat,eggs, and meat in my diet, but look at my cholesterol levels and the numbers speak for themselves.

Wow!! Congratulation! My cholesterol is going down but I would love to get it where yours is. What is this 6-12-12 program and how did you find it? My blood pressure is an issue but I have severe anxiety w/doc's and it goes up when I go in. I am not surprised after 37 years of being terrorized and used for un-necessary tests by some docs.

Can't argue with the results! Congrats, especially on the triglicerydes. That's what I have trouble with
