Cholesterol results
Feb 19, 2008
I just gave blood about 2 weeks ago and they now give a total cholesteral test when you give blood. I just checked the result and YIPEE my total was 168. I had upped my RYR to 1 in the am and 2 before bed. This is because in order to give blood I have to eat tons of liver and steak in order to pass the iron test. So all I can say is the RYR really works. I know a person is supposed to eat a good meal before giving blood but this time I only had a banana. So it was almost a fasting test. Floating on cloud nine here.....

No, sorry they don't give the individual readings, just total cholesteral. I don't think they even test for HDL, LDL, just total. They started doing this about 6 months ago. Now while I do think it is helpful, at times I do wonder. After all I have to "pump iron" to pass the iron test and also eat a "good" meal before giving blood. So that in itself will skew the results for me. But this time the results were good.
