Talking Happy! all figures are almost perfect GP is impressed

88 Days sober and the following results
WOOOHOOOO ALL figures are normal !! (well almost)
- Liver: GGT was 342 (must be less than 13) is NOW 79!
Something else in Liver: ALT: was 54 (must be less than 31) NOW 24!

- cholesterol is almost perfect
(I am on tablets for it it was absurd high 9.8 where 5.5 is the norm, NOW 4.7)
- Bad Cholesterol is 2.9 (2.5 is norm, it was 5.2)
- Good Cholesterol is 1.3 (1.1 is norm, it was 2.0)

- Iron levels perfect,
(I was anemic, now taking Iron tabs - I am vegetarian but a bad one lol)

- Bloodpressure perfect (125 / 85) (Used to be 145-90 when I was drinking)

- Weight in the healthy range, BMI nearly perfect!
I was in obese range size 16 Womens AUS (US=12 NOW 8 US and 12 AUS)
93kg= 205lb, NOW 79kg= 174lb.
BMI gone from 31.1 to 26.4 woohoo)

party time!!

Gp is impressed, she said I look greet and come across happier liver still enlarged but she said it's nothing to worry about she said

I would say let's celebrate it with a drink but let's not do that hey
Want to keep it all like this.
Soon I will get OFF the cholesterol tabs and no more iron tabs, I am weening off the Tegretol too and then weening off the Chlorpromozine) Don't need them

Feeling on top of the world!
As you can imagine
See hard work will get rewarded, Walking 2 miles every day (30 mins or more) and eating healthy, not drinking are paying off.

It feels AMAZING!
Reading some stories here makes me sad sometimes, thought some happy news might be inspiring for the newly starters.... to show them that your health does dramatically improve, hang in there guys you CAN do it, it is DAMN! HARD work, I agree but the feeling you get getting news like this from your GP (Doc) is the best feeling ever!
Great side effect of not drinking anymore.

Pink,

I'm glad you shared too. I'm new to sobriety and it's comforting and inspiring to know that health can improve. Just have to keep going and be kind to ourselves!
