Thanks for citing additional markers. I’m not familiar with all of these, but my latest CBC and CMPanels looked pretty good across the board (WBC, RBC, hemoglobin, hematocrit, all within range)
More relevant to potential inflammation: neutrophils, lymphs. monocytes, EOS, baso, all remain nicely within range: i.e., mid- to lower-end of the spectrum provided. Immature granulocytes = 0. When our internist looked at the bloodwork a few months ago she said it all looked great.
For about 18 months, I was taking regular KetoMojo readings for BHB and morning glucose. Even with dawn effect, I was typically sitting around 90 on glucose (with BHB settling in several months into keto at about +/-1.0). Never been diabetic and cutting out the carbs wasn’t particularly traumatic. Never even had the keto flu.
So either I’m incredibly healthy these days and am finally curing years of silent hidden soft plaque accumulation, or I’m missing something big here.
If it weren’t for those darn rising CAC scores, I’d be clickin’ my heels about how delightfully well everything is going.
The thing that gives me greatest comfort is that - if I had heart issues despite not having clinical symptoms - then the solution would be to cut out the carbs, eat TMAD, take K2/D3, sleep well, lower stress, etc. Yup, that’s been my lifestyle for 2 years
