I said I'd post this a while back, but I have been quite down in the main, plus dealing with life stuff.. . Anyway, feeling a bit better so I've got my results here and dont understand them. I need to go back to GP with a bit of knowledge really. I've listed them in my profile too, plus my symptoms are in profile too.

My diet is a healthy vegan one. Lots of organic veg, varied & with nuts & pulses & grains. I dont go in for the 'clean eating' thing. I bake my own low sugar gorgeous cakes, but I do not gorge on them. Re clean eating "If cake is dirty, then I must be filthy"
No smoking or illegals.
