Hurray, they are in the normal range and even went down ever so slightly.
Kappa light chains at 18.9 mg/L
Lambda at 13.6mg/L
the ratio is actually what is important. So I’m still doing great there.
One weird number I’ve never even looked at (liver function ALT) went up out of normal by a few points. I’m guessing since I started the Keto diet that I’m eating a lot of full-fat food. I’ve felt great on this keto but I haven’t really lost the weight that people rave about. Maybe I’ve lost 3 pounds but nothing remarkable. I do know my body does like homeostasis and my weight doesn’t just drop away. Still, after this amount of time, I’ll just back off some.
I’m not sure if I’m in full ketosis and that might be the reason. Anyway, I’ll probably back off the full-fat stuff for a while but keep on low carb and proteins which I’ve enjoyed. I’ve given it a good trial period but think it’s time to just eat my ‘normal’ stuff.
I definitely haven’t missed sugar at all but then again I’m not so much as a ‘sweet’ person but rather ‘savory’. Not having beans and rice has been easy too. I just substitute lettuce stuff. Well, I’ll see how that ALT number is on my next labs. Obviously, something was going on as it’s always been in the low 20’s range. Even when I looked back over the last year so the Keto must have had an impact.
Today is a gym day for me.
B has his pulmonary test scheduled and my daughter will take him to Roseville.
Yesterdays BMB went exceptionally well. The NP did the procedure and I could tell she was going to do a good job. Of course, no matter what they still hurt like hell.
The book giveaway is still happening with the brand new book “lightly” by Francine Jay. she is one of the pioneers of the minimalist movement in the last 10 years or so.
