Mixed results

Bloodwork came back from the lab today, and the numbers are all over the place. My A1C (glucosylted hemoglobin, a sort of rolling average of my blood sugar) is 7.1, which is okay but not great; total cholesterol is 195 (marginal but not bad) and my LDL (the "bad" cholesterol) is 131, which isn't good. Doctor wants me to start taking something to lower the LDL, but I think a more sensible option would be to eat more veggies and fruit in place of the carbs and fats that make up so much of my current diet. The doctor also isn't happy about my liver function, but she's going to hold off for another eight weeks and do another blood test then. We'll see how that works out.

The cellulitis in the left leg might as well not be there any more - can't even tell where it used to be when I look at it. Keflex continues until it runs out, of course.
