My blood tests have always shown CHO on the high side but doctors have always told me not to worry about it because I was young (mid-30s) and otherwise healthy (175 lbs, 6 ft) and quite active, and my good CHO # was very high as well. But 6 weeks ago my Dr. was shocked to find that my CHO was ~325. He had me come in the next morning to repeat the test in a fasted state to double-check and # was slightly lower (315) but still alarmingly high, which he seemed rather worried by and booked me an appt for later in Feb with an endocrinologist.
I switched immediately from my typical meat-heavy diet to a 100% whole-food plant-based vegan diet (quite a change!), and got a new lipid panel yesterday, which (amazingly) showed:
Needless to say, I'm very happy, though somewhat suspicious since what little I've read online suggests that a 47% reduction in < 6 weeks is...atypical bordering on impossible.
Haven't posted here before, but wondering if those with more experience than me think this is...feasible or should I have reason to be suspicious?
