Comparing Blood Levels Pre- and Post-Raw

I found my SAD blood tests from August, 2005!

I obtained the blood test results today. I have posted only the results
that I felt were most relevant to the nutritional issue I'm dealing
with- my concern about hair
loss. The results show that everything is normal. I was happy to find a
test I had taken last August that I can use for comparison between my
non-raw days and my current diet. Now, the 2005 test was taken during
an emergency room visit for an ovarian cyst, so I had not fasted
beforehand, as I did for the latest test, and the nature of the
emergency might have played a role in some of the numbers. Still, the
results for many of the tests are very similar. If any of you are
nurses or doctors or in some field that requires you to understand the
implications of these numbers, feel free to share your knowledge. It's
amazing how much people know that doctors won't/can't take the time to
truly explain to you.

The highlighted items are the ones that stood out to me the most. Oh- I didn't include my cholesterol, but it's 177- very good, and much improved from the
mid-200's I've had in the recent past. My HDL (the good stuff) is 54
(if it were above 60, it would be awesome!) But 40 to 60 is good. LDL
(the bad stuff) needs to be below 130 for someone of my
characteristics, so this is at a healthy level as well. The raw diet
has truly helped me obtain that result.

It's late, so I will have to reserve my comments about what all
these tests mean until another post. I did a lot of research, though!
In summary, I'm thinking I could stand to raise the protein levels, but
I've read that you can't do that by eating protein, you just have to
have an overall balanced diet. I also believe my calcium level could
stand to be raised. Looking at all of the blood counts (some of which I
haven't posted) I've also deduced that my iron level is on the
low-normal side. I can't tell if its gone up or down since last year
but I believe it has gone up because after the first week of eating
raw, the severe tongue pain that my doctor had said was iron-related
totally disappeared.

NEXT UP: The Dietician, and perhaps some pH strips so I can test my acid/alkalinity levels (thanks for the idea, bkrisp).

Happy Independence Day!
