How My Body is Falling Apart – Complete With Stats

My blood test results came today. My applause goes to the mail deliver dude/dudess that made it through the freshly fallen snow. So here are dah numbers:

Length of Fast:            12 hours.
Cholesterol:               203 mg/dL (should be below 200)
Triglyceride Fats:         245 mg/dL (should be below 150, over 200 is high risk)
Chol/HDL ratio:            5.0
HDL Cholesterol:           41 mg/dL (should be greater than 40)
LDL Cholesterol:           113 mg/dL (should be below 100)
Vitamin D:                 64 ng/ML (between 30-80 is optimal)
TSH:                       7.62 uIU/mL (0.20-4.5 is optimal)
Free Thyroxin:             1.4 ng/dL (0.8-1.8 is optimal)

I need to work on my Triglyceride level. So I guess I will try and lose another 10 pounds and see if that does the trick.

Already upped my dosage of levothyroxine to bring that TSH down.

Vitamin D level is good. That daily 5000 IU dosage I am taking seems to be the right amount.

06:43 No more favrd – favrd.textism.com – It was a way of finding clever twitter folk. I’ll miss it. #fb

10:44 I wonder if the “web-cock algorithm” used by favrd will be open sourced.

11:15 @weathertom Very apt name – bit.ly/7z7lYf – urban-dictionary definition. Twitter needs a webcock filter.

12:16 All these posts about favrd, but still not a trending topic on Twitter. Safe to say that favrd had a cult following.

13:26 I shall ironically follow @APlusK in honor of favrd being down.

20:42 Plants! I own plants. How are they not dead. Been at least a month since they’ve been last watered. Maybe 2. #fb
