Guest post: My mom’s biometric results

My mom posted on LCHF America’s Facebook page today.  I knew she was going in for her biometric screening, but I didn’t know the results before I saw her post.  It put a big smile on my face to read it.  She’s been a diabetic for years, and LCHF has really been helping with her daily glucose readings.  Her post really speaks for itself; with her permission, I’m reposting here.  Please feel free to pop on over to our Facebook page to her original post to comment!

I’m a 50-something, overweight, diabetic woman. While I don’t follow the LCHF regimen as tightly as my daughter does, I adhere to it pretty strongly. I had my labs done today, and I’m happy to share the results. Note that my LCHF or NSNG odyssey began in early June, 2013.

Per the Mayo Clinic
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/high-blood-cholesterol/in-depth/cholesterol-levels/art-20048245

Total cholesterol desirable < 200 – mine 161
LDL cholesterol ideal < 100 – mine 71
HDL cholesterol best > 60 – mine 63
Triglicerides desirable < 150 – mine 136

And the best news for me…as a diabetic (from http://www.diabetesforecast.org/2013/feb/meet-your-a1c.html )
“An A1C of below 5.7 percent is considered normal, while A1C levels of 6.5 percent and above call for a diagnosis of diabetes.”

My HbA1c today was 5.7! 

While I will always be a diabetic, the amount of medicine I take now has to be lowered. I’ve had some weight loss (quite needed), but it is not the focus of my way of eating. NSNG or LCHF is just a sensible (and delicious) diet for this woman.
