Have My New Lifestyle Solutions Paid Off?

I have been curious to see if my Lifestyle changes have made a substantive difference in my lab results...a key medical measuring stick. Back in November of last year I had my annual physical. At that point I had a Lipid Panel done quantifying the level of my cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL and LDL. They were not so good. On November 3, 2010 my numbers were:

Cholesterol     265     Range should be   140-220    this meant mine was HIGH
Triglyceride    112     Range should be    35-135     this meant mine was OKAY
HDL                 61     Range should be    40-85       this meant mine was OKAY
LDL                182    Range should be    80-100     this meant mine was HIGH

Then at the end of July I had my Lipid Panel done again. I am happy to report my numbers had changed dramatically. On July 28, 2011 my numbers were:


Cholesterol     221     Range should be   140-220    this meant mine was HIGH (but now almost 
                                                                                 normal!)
Triglyceride    135     Range should be    35-135     this meant mine was OKAY
HDL                 52     Range should be    40-85       this meant mine was OKAY
LDL                142    Range should be    80-100     this meant mine was HIGH (but look how much it 
                                                                                 has dropped!)

All but my Triglyceride number dropped and by a number of points. The doctor is pleased and so am I! It does show that all this hard work is paying off in many quantitative ways. I am living healthier and I am healthier for it.
