    Probably nothing that being younger wouldn't cure. Sorry I'm not helping much am I?

    (trigs/HDL is stellar)

    Hi Chris,
    With Conn's difficulties with leaking potassium so I overdid the blueberries and strawberries and increased the ggt. I hear that in low carb some saturated is not so good as others so I should perhaps up the coconut fat.

    Hi Derek
    Many thanks for sharing your results here ...
    As you say 'some good some not so good.'

    I'm no expert, and I'm not diabetic, so it wouldn't be right for me to comment … but at a risk of repeating myself Smile thanks for sharing.

    All the best Jan
