I finally got my fasting blood test results back. My total cholesterol dropped by 12 points (yay!), must be all that steel cut oatmeal I've been eating. However, my HDL is a bit low and my LDL is a bit high. Darn. My fasting blood sugar is still just a hair above normal, so the doc wants me to go talk to the diabetic counselors. Not sure I want to go, but I might. Maybe they'll have some new and different info for me, but I doubt it. sigh. MY QUESTION IS: I read somewhere that fibro-folks have a tendency to have Syndrome X, which includes decreased glucose sensitivity and high blood sugars. Does anyone here know more about this? And what to do about it? I'm not having any luck with researching it. Frankly, I find it just plain annoying that these silly numbers aren't falling into line the way they are supposed to! Thank you in advance for any advice you may have. Peace and Happy New Year, Beth.
