I am a 54 year old male, and I do not smoke or drink. I am prediabetic and overweight from the past five years. I have started LCHF (low carb high fat) and IF (intermediate fasting) diet for seven weeks. This has given very good results, I was 100 kg, and now I weigh 90 kg. And my blood pressure is also back to normal. I feel highly energetic. Today, on getting myself tested for blood glucose and lipid profile, I got very strange results. My fasting glucose is 86 mg/dL, postprandial glucose is 152 mg/dL, total cholesterol is 210, triglycerides is 112, HDL is 34, LDL is 175, VLDL is 22.4, total cholesterol/HDL ratio is 6.2. Though these readings look very strange and abnormal, I am feeling very fit and energetic after changing over to LCHF diet and intermediate fasting. How to get the glucose and lipid readings in the normal range while continuing the new diet? I was feeling lazy from the last four years, which was rectified with the new diet and fasting.
