    OK, not sure if I'm reading these right, but it seems you have a CRP not an hsCRP and that you have a TSH but no T3 or T4. So very hard to gauge thyroid function or inflammation. It appears HDL is high. And fasting glucose is high, too. Are you worried about diabetes/insulin issues?

    Thanks for responding again, Lauren.

    Yes, I am concerned about my blood glucose. Last quarter it had gone down into the low 90's, but as you can see, is back up. My diet is semi-epi-paleo, as compared to plain ole paleo. Labs were done about 10 days after returning from vacation, were my diet was tight, but I drank a lot of red wine over the week. Don't know if this could have caused the spike.

    Actually, HDL is low (36), but slowly rising over the last few months. Obviously need to get that up. The TSH is ricidulously low (.05), but don't have hyper symptoms...although my sleep has gotten worse during the last couple of months. The CRP is the highly sensitive type, according to my Doc. I asked about this specifically.

    Should have some new labs this week on my thyroid panel, which I requested upon seeing that TSH number...last labs had my T3 at the low end of normal. So we have TSH way on the hyper side, yet T3 is low...sumtin goin on here.

    Thanks, Patty...will ask for those on the Nov. labs. Don't know that I have been tested for those. Maybe long, long time ago.
