The result for my full blood test just came back and I am so relieved that everything is alright. The last time I did a full screening was before married, that was like 3 years ago. I'm not really a health concious person, but I think yearly check-up is necessary. Furthermore my lifestyle is not even close to the ideal lifestyle - I eat almost everything especially when it comes to seafood and sweet things a.k.a sinful sugar and not to forget that I don't exercise. The only exercise I do now is breastfeeding as it says can burn calories up to 500kcal per session but it doesn't include any muscle activities.
The screening is quite comprehensive but the highlights will always be the cholesterol and sugar level.
Glucose at 4.0 (reference range: 3.9-6.1). Seems like I still can stuff all the fancy donuts! :D
Cholesterol is at 4.4 falls under desirable range *ehem*. However my LDL is a bit on high side (ideally will be below 2.58). I always mixed up between good and bad cholesterol but MrComot gives me a good way to remember - L is for lousy. So LDL is bad :P
Apart from the test, the lab also give me a nice folder complete with human anatomy and 'common symptom that you might be at risk for disease' chart, also common dietary reference and it comes to my surprise that lamb has lower cholesterol content than beef and salmon! I always thought lamb has very high cholesterol due to the "kambing panas!".
Oh ya, stay away from those tiny quail's egg. Kecil kecil cili padi, kolesterol paling tinggi!
Ps: Don't forget to check yours, prevention is better than cure ;)
