Blood test on keto

December 13, 2014

I try to have a blood test every single year, in order to be sure everything is good with my body. After all, it’s the only one I’m gonna get. Last year though, I couldn’t necessary draw a line after these tests, since my keto adventure had only been started. This year, I must admit, I delayed them a lot, partly because I felt fine, and partly because, oh well, I was a bit scared of all the “I told you so” that I could hear around me.

It wasn’t the case, obviously. Actually, my cholesterol, both total and divided, looks incredibly. Like a baby’s. :)

Total Cholesterol: 171 mg/dL    Optimum level: <200 mg/dl
Attention level: 200-240 mg/dl
High risk level: >240 mg/dl
HDL- Cholesterol: 48 mg/dL   Low risk : > 60 mg/dL
Moderate risk : 40 -59 mg/dL
High risk : < 40 mg/dL;
LDL-Cholesterol: 105 mg/dL   Optimum level: <100 mg/dL
Low risk: 100 – 129 mg/dL
Moderate risk: 130 – 159 mg/dL
High risk: 160 – 189 mg/dL
Very high risk: >=190 mg/dL
VLDL – Cholesterol: 18 mg/dl    < 50 mg/dl


I am not doing this to brag about it (actually, maybe, a little bit), but to make you realise that low carb diets are not only safe, but the solution to a vast array of modern diseases. Needless to say, my sugar blood is low too, but this thing comes with the keto lifestyle, of course. Has any of you made a blood test on keto? If so, where the results as good as these?
