Default Health Fair = Cheap Lab Work

Our local hospital is hosting a health fair with a very low cost package of lab work available including lipid profile, A1C, and several other tests. I've been back on induction level low carb for about three weeks following a year of being way off the wagon. I had my lipid profile done a couple of months ago and am very interested to see what impact low carb has had in such a short time. I should know by next week.

BTW, I'm down 18 lbs as of this AM

Test results are back (comparing Oct 2017 to Oct 2016)
Total Cholesterol: down to 208 from 261
LDL: down to 147 from 172
HDL: unfortunately also down from 46 to 37
Triglycerides: down to 120 from 217
A1C: down to 5.1 from 5.2
Fasting BG: 100

Not bad for just three weeks back on the program. I need to work on the HDL but I can see how it happened as I was back in school over the past year (full time school and full time job) and my exercise, diet and weight all went to hell. I'm confident I can raise this over the next few months. Total cholesterol and LDL should continue to improve on this LC program. I probably need to clean up some of my protein sources as I've been doing too much cheese and cured meats (bacon, sausage, etc.). This was a calculated LDL, not an actual measured, so the huge drop in triglycerides results in an upward bump. I'll probably wait until the first of the year and then get a complete measured lipid profile.
