Which Blood Tests Are Important?

We’re hearing a lot these days about cholesterol not being the baddy that we once thought it was.

The analogy I like the most is seeing cholesterol molecules around an inflamed damaged artery is like seeing firefighters at a fire scene.  They are the good guys trying to help out.

There’s still a lot of confusion about it even in the medical profession.

1.  Your Triglyceride levels.

2.  Your HBA1C

Both want to be low.
