I have just been to the doctor who gave me the results of recent blood tests.  Essentially, my chol is 3.2, trig is 1.0, hdl-c is 0.8, ldl-c is 1.9 and the ratio (?) is 4.0.  A1C is 5.7.  As is usual, you go in expecting the worst and hope for decent numbers.  The doctor wants me to lose another 40lb (don't all doctors?) and aside from the bp being 135/75, the results seem to be reasonable.  He said any doctor looking at my results would not know that I have diabetes. That might be a bit of a stretch, but was nice of him to say.
