Blood tests after switching to healthy eating
11 months ago I started to care about healthy food because my cholesterol levels were high. You can see in the picture attached. Until then, I ate sweets, refined foods and very little fruits. I was so scared that I took Crestor (cholesterol medicine) for 3 months (16 December 2017 - 22 March 2018). It brought my cholesterol almost to normal levels. Then I say: "Ok, now let's see if I can keep them normal only by eathing healthy". I made the following changes: I completely removed the sweets and refined sugar, bread and oil. I started to eat more vegetables, I added fruits, nuts and seeds, I introduced whole wheat bread and fish (sardines, herring, salmon). I started doing sports. I never drink Coke, eat chips or animal saturated fat, neither now nor before, only lean pork and chicken.
As you cand see, now, after 7 months I made my blood test again and my Total Cholesterol is just a little over the normal limit but bad cholesterol (LDL) is still high. Also, HDL dropped a little (and I was eating more Omega 3 foods that I eat before).
Before I ask you what can I do about this cholesterol I want to ask you something that I'm more afraid of: blood sugar (glycemia) ! This not make sense. When I was eating added sugar and cakes, my blood sugar was 84 ! After 3 months of healty eating it increased to 92, and now, after 11 months it is 98 (very close to the limit) ! Every time I make my blood test, it was rising. Now it's in normal limit but if this rising is maintained, the next time I will have diabetes ! What the heck I've done !? Why is this happening ? Is processed cakes with added sugar better than raw fruits ?? And I eat a lot of fibre also. Do you think should I worry about this ? When I last done my blood tests, in the evening before, at 22 o'clock, I ate some fruits (not much) and a slice of whole bread as carbs. And then I made my tests after 12 hours, at 10 o'clock in the morning. Do that matter so much ? If so, what should I do next time, so that my blood test be accurate ?
P.S: I am 38 years old, 75kg and 1.81 m.
