Dave results weren't the greatest, and due to the high risk of them being skewed due to minimal hydration etc a re test needs to be done in a couple of weeks. Also a liver test was conducted, in which he we will receive the results in 3-5 days.
- Ideally cholesterol levels should be between 3.5 and 5.5 - Dave's result 6.4
- Urea result was also high at 9.4 (normal range is between 3.0 and 8.0)
- Triglycerides were also high at 1.5 (this is usually associated with a high fat, high alcohol diet). Anything less than this amount it ideal
Apparently all these can be associated with a high protein diet, we really do have to find the right balance. It also goes to show that not all healthy eating plans work for everybody. We will continue to monitor and then amend if we need to.
It also goes to show how important it that we are doing this for the heart foundation, everyone can be affected by heart disease even if your on a healthy diet and exercise regular. Your heart health is always important.
