I've been supplementing with 2 krill oil, 10,000 D & Vit K in the AM with fat and natural calm w/ liquid kelp in the PM.

Here are my results and I am looking for feedback :)

Stacey, unfortunately, we're not going to be able to provide adequate feedback without a full consultation. Interpreting lab work is a tricky process, and requires a whole lot of context - your diet, training, recovery, stress, health history, etc. all would factor into any analysis we'd perform. And all of that requires a whole lotta time on our end.

I can say a few things:

1. Your triglyceride:HDL ratio, a strong predictor of risk for a number of lifestyle-related diseases and conditions, is 1.07. A value below 2.0 is considered very good - and very low risk.

2. A fasting blood glucose of <100 is generally considered "normal," although normal varies based on your context.

And those are literally the only generalities I could possibly make. I'd recommend seeking out a good naturopath or functional medicine doc (or your doc, if they're savvy to Paleo lifestyle concepts) to interpret these for you, for the most accurate reading.
