    Blood Work Came Back


    Blood work came back.
    Test levels and IGF1 levels are normal again, so I'm clear to give it another run. Estrogen is a little low, but that's because I started my estrogen blockers too soon (being precautious). Doctor said to ease up on the blockers this time around.

    Check this out though.
    Doctor said my diet is too clean. I am low in one section of cholesterol (they break it down into 3 sections) and apparently you need to have oil in your food. I don't cook with oil, at all. Not even olive oil, grape seed, etc. but I guess you do need some in your diet.

    My insulin is low. She said I don't eat enough sugar. Which she's right. I don't eat sugar at all except for a couple dabs in my oats in the morning. Your body needs sugar.

    So, not like anyone cares about my blood work. Just saying, I guess too clean is a bad thing too so mix it up a bit. Super clean isn't good either. Time to add oil and sugar to my diet. Go figure...

    Sugar isn't needed but fats/oils definitely are.

    I'd be curious to know what your glucose and insulin levels actually were. Personally, I would tend to doubt that you need to consume more (table) sugar. Having a relatively low insulin level should be good -- less strain on the pancreas, lower risk of developing diabetes.

    As for the lipids (cholesterol) levels, what was the HDL? Generally, a high level of HDL, especially the HDL2 sub-fraction, is desirable, since this supports reverse cholesterol transport -- back to the liver -- and cleaner arteries.

    I'm no doctor, though, and this is simply my own musings.

    Glad you posted; this kind of thing brings up interesting points.

    Pretty sure clean doesn't = no fat. Essential Fatty Acids are called "Essential" for a reason.

    Absolutely. I think people hear the word fat and run the other way.
