Group Name Lab Explanation
Entry Label HDL+Insulin
Entry Text These labs are mostly normal! Your thyroid is normal. You have not yet developed diabetes or liver disease as a result of your weight. You do have two number that were not normal and both of these are common abnormalities that we see. First your HDL cholesterol or "good cholesterol" was a little low (you want it to be high). The rest of your cholesterol numbers are normal. Also your insulin level is a little high (you want it to be low). This does not mean that you have diabetes but does mean that you are at risk for getting diabetes. Both of these abnormalities reinforce that you need to increase your activity which should help improve both of these numbers.
