    Dr. Carney thank you so much for your response. 

    After reading through your list here is where I can see I need to make improvement?...

    -I use about 1 T. of  Wonder Cocoa 4-5 times a week. (Fat free and 99.5% caffeine free) but maybe still too...

    Dr. Carney thank you so much for your response. 

    After reading through your list here is where I can see I need to make improvement?...

    -I use about 1 T. of  Wonder Cocoa 4-5 times a week. (Fat free and 99.5% caffeine free) but maybe still too much?

    -I use whole wheat pastry flour or pasta or bread 1-2 days a week

    -probably 2 cups of cloudy apple jucie a week total

    -maybe 1/4 -1/2 cup golden raisins a week

    -I eat calories after 6:00

    -I probably only drink 4 glasses of water a day

    -I probably have a tablespoon of brown sugar a day on my oatmeal

    -I'll have to check on my LDL level.  I don't think it is higher than 80 but I can't find the paper.  The last check I had done was a few weeks ago but it told total cholestol at 168 plus HDL at 68.  Do you just subtract the HDL and that gives you the LDL?  Or are there other numbers involved.  (And it was non fasting)

    -My blood pressure last time checked was 124/76...a couple months before that it was 111/70

    -Glucose...non-fasting was 116 (140 mg/dl) (Feb. 8, 2017)

    *As far as my husband is concerned, I will print out your suggestions on fasting bloodwork.  Mybe he will take it with him to a doctor apt.
