A few months ago I posted the question below and received some advice from Penel, Janie and Sassyl I went on a low carb diet hoping to reduce my weight and impaired glucose and cholesterol. I had the results of blood tests yesterday. last May my glucose was 6.4 - today it is 5.5. I am now in a normal range for blood sugar and so is my cholesterol.
I have not lost much weight on the low carb diet - approx 5lbs in a few months but since last July I have lost approx 16lbs total. This weight loss has probably contributed to the lower levels of cholesterol and glucose. I am so glad I did not take the medication and took advice from here! Thank you!
