Got my first round of labs back



Recommended Posts

I'm almost 3 months post op and just did my first round of blood tests. According to the results I have low HDL and low alkaline phosphatase. When I google what both of these mean, they both talk about malnutrition. Anyone have similar lab results their first round? Should I be worried?

That's interesting. Did you eat the recommended Protein and take the Vitamins?

Are you active? You can increase your HDL through exercise.

There are foods you can add into your diet to increase your HDL and it also may increase as you lose weight. I would check with your doctor to determine if there's any cause for concern.

Yeah, I was looking at the list of foods that increase HDL but do not see much on there that I would able to tolerate.
I meet with the doc on Jan 3rd to go over my results

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
