I have been told i am borderline diabetic based on my first two weekly tests though my last two tests have shown everything to be on lower range.

I eat 30-50 grams fried (micro) peanuts as snacks with green tea.

11 weeks back:
HDL/Total Cholestrol -- ~24% -- i need to take this a bit higher to 26%.
Triglycerides/HDL -- 3.5 -- I need to get this down to around 2.00

No STATIN Drugs please.

I am on a FLAXSEED Powder (made at home -- Organic Flaxseed comes at Rs 300/Kg and 1 Kg would last about a month) now to a level of 2TBSP/Day. Will add Cold pressed Flaxseed Oil 1TBSP/Day to salads and will have a lipid profile test again after maybe 8 weeks to see how far i improved. Flaxseed powder has reduced my BP from 160/90 to 120/80 in less than 6 weeks and pulse rates are all normal (resting/normal/workout)

All Saffolas/Canolas are thrown out of house. Only Olive Oil, Coconut Oil. Alkalizing body through diet and water and restricting acid ash leaving diet to 20% or less.
