I started this 5:2 on 25.11.13.
I have given my blood results in April 2014. I have high blood pressure so have just gone to Drs for new script and more blood tests. Here are the results taken on 13/9/14 for those interested:
Urea, Creatinine and Electolytes - NORMAL (renal function)
Glucose from 6.6 (09/13) to 6.5
Cholesterol (09/13) 6.1 to now still the same
Liver function 119 in Feb2012 to 51 WOW (and Drs and specialists couldn't do anything for me!)
Haemoglobin Alc 6.5 (10/13) to 6.3
Haemoglobin Alc-IFCC 47 (10/13) to 46
sometines I am not sure what the medical jargon really means, need to consult dictionary.
I am over the moon!!! :
Yesterday I read via a newsarticle Michael Mosley's research on short fast exercise. I shall now incorporate that into my 5:2. So I will be fasting and exercising on these two days and see if this helps with lowering any prediabeties/genetics in this area. Decided to dance to music for this.
As a friend said to me, I reinvent the house, household items, clothing, and now you are reinventing yourself.
So everyone, I can truly say with 100% confidence, this is definitely a lfestyle improvement for all.
Also noticed that on the other side of menopause, I am not forgetting what I talk about, that moment of forgetfulness has gone. My glasses aren't used as much to read, starting to see more of the print now without the glasses. The clotted appearance of my legs, looking like varicouse veins is starting to clear up. The varicouse vein has been removed many years ago. Clothing is hugging me and looking good. Been busy sewing and op shoppoing and reinventing some of my finds. Hubby is still in love with me.
What more can I ask. I know I shall ask for all of you to have as much and more success on 5:2.
