I've never had a 24hr fasting test, only 12 hrs. I was told that the levels should be correct for measurement if you only have water for 12 hrs.?
Did you ever see this?
Maybe a replacement for statins eventually.
Interesting observation. I will fast for a longer period like you for my next tests and see what the numbers are.
Anandbharti, That is exactly what I intend to do. My thinking is that since my intestines are supper slow, it's in essence like I'm not fasting at all when getting the tests.
I do like the idea of the article you posted, Ed. Lets hope something comes of it.
do you not eat any fibre?
Plenty! First, I have an appointment with my cardiologist on Dec. 7 where I can talk to him about problems such as this. Also have to find out from him (and anyone) how I can get free medication or how to stop with the medication I have now. Same day with my PCP and same questions. (out of money by mid January).
I have a bowl of "Fiber One" cereal with 57(?)% of the daily fiber plus a couple apples, and ect.. However, because I'm inactive everything works very slow. I have thought that since my stomach is very heavy shortly after a meal (many times more than it used to be) that I could have other medical problems and/or medication side effects. Eith way, again, I'll find out after this test if that is indeed the cause.
I weigh my self roughly every other day, Before the attack I was 185-ish, Now I bounce between 205 and 215. I did ride bike nearly every day for a couple miles each, and now walk when ever the weather is nice the same paths. Beyond that I do nothing.
