Blood Test feedback

Took my first blood test that I can remember just to see where I'm at.

I'm a 30 year old male, no specific diet though I try to eat well, and I run 1-2 times a week and try and do crossfit at least 4 times a week. I am by no means an elite athlete. I have yet to talk to my doctor about the results but will be scheduled to do so promptly. If there is something on here I forgot to post just let me know. I didn't do a vitamin test but I'll make sure to ask for that next time


Glucose 100 mg/dl

Creatine 0.9 mg/dl

Cholesterol 131 mg/dl

Triglyceride 86 mg/dl

HDL 43 mg/dl

LDL 71 mg/dl


RDW 11.3 (I put this on here because it showed up as low)

Testos Free 123.6 pg/mL

Testos Total 453 ng/dl


Like I said the the blood test is quite long so if there's is an important value I'm missing let me know. I'm planning on further cleaning up my diet and retesting pre-holidays

Re: Blood Test feedback

HDL could be higher and Triglyceride could be lower but it isn't something I would freak out about at all. Overall your numbers are better than most Americans. Good work.

Re: Blood Test feedback

Sugar is getting on the high side, probably a reason your TG is just a little high as well. This is not to say that they are directly related, but too high of sugar intake will raise your TG's and have an obvious impact on blood sugar. Ultimately, I wouldn't fret about it too much. You could have just had a little too much simple carbs before you started the fast.

Re: Blood Test feedback

Any comments on the test level. Its within acceptable range, but I'm not sure if being in the 400s is normal for someone who just turned 30 or if its a bit low. Does it even matter?

Re: Blood Test feedback

Test is okay, could be better but you can't make a descision on based on one.
Hormone levels bounce around a lot. Or influenced by excessive aggressive conditioning, lack of sleep, diet changes.
The only thing I am surprised that wasnt tested was tsh ft3 ft4. Thyroid stuff.

Otherwise. Your doing fine...

Re: Blood Test feedback

What do I have to ask for to get my thyroid stuff tested for as far as type of test. I also need to make sure they do the vitamins next time.

Simply ask your md that if he will order your thyroid panel. Most likely he will ask you what symptoms your having. Both hypo and hyper thyroid symptoms as sutle but hyper has more extreme ones.

Vitamins? Mmmmm I think most mainstream md will shy away from ordering vitamin levels. Unless there something that is a medically necessary. Otherwise your insurance carrier is not going to pay for it.

If your inclined to haveit done, you can order these yourself online, but be warned , it's pricey.
