I have been following LW and LCHF diet for the past 3 months. I take glyciphage 500 in the morning, and glyciphage 850 and Rosavas 5 mg for cholesterol in the night. My blood results on Aug 1st week was
serum chol -135
since oct 3rd week, due to very low PPBS ,around 88-90 after taking LW for breakfast, I stopped taking morning glyciphage. (on my own)
Lat week I repeated all the test again after following LW and LCHF .My intake of carb is small portions. Per Shooter George's post, one has to take LW in accordance to ones weight. But, for me though my wt was
60 kg in Aug, now it is reduced to 58, I cannot finish my plate if I take 60/58 gms of LW. so I reduce the qty, acc to my requirement.(maybe half my weight)
ser, chor -174
Morning I have herbal powder (from Senthil) mixed with water
1/2 hour walk in my backyard.
then, black coffee with VCO or sometimes ghee.
later for breakfast -1/2 cup of LW with moong dal and lots of coconut.
For lunch, chamba rice 1cup, with veg
For evening 1 cup black coffee with VCO/ghee
2 tsp of aval/pori (flattened rice) with lots of cocnut and 1tsp ghee.
dinner LW with veg curry with coconut.
No root veg,/meat/egg no fruits, no sugar, I follow vegan diet.
MY blood results looks good, but why has LDL gone up, since using lots of coconut oil/coconut/ghee in my diet. Earlier, before, HF diet, I used to restrict use of coconut oil, coconut etc thinking, it would affect my cholesterol.
Dr has changed my cholesterol medicine to storvas. 10 mg. stating, my results looks good, and he wants to maintain them as such. check up next after 3 months. Thanks all in this forum for guiding me to show progress in my blood results, but your further valuable comments about my diet and blood results too would be appreciated.
