I recently had my cholesterol rechecked and overall my doc was very happy. He just didn't explain why my total went up. By changing my diet over 3 mos. the following labs changed:
Total chol. went from 205 to 219
HDL went from 30 to 63
LDL went from 138 to 137
Tri's went from 183 to 46
Ratio went from 6.8 to 3.5
Also, A1C went from 6.0 to 5.0
When everything else went in the right direction, why did my total go up? And should I not be too excited about it since the others are better?
