my initial blood test was to check my vitamin D level. It was v.low, but the rest of the readings (cholesterol etc) were within a "normal" range. I merely observed that my blood was clumpy in the vial ...clumps falling to the vial wall..I had never seen it like before.
My latter observations are based on the blood which I see when I do my daily copaxone injections. Initially, when i started these, there was generally no blood at the injection point. If I hit a vein, I'd get a little blood which would coagulate immediately.
Now I'm on a low saturated fat, high omega 3 diet, I have turned into a bleeder. I always get bleeding at my injection point (even if I avoid veins) - and the blood runs like water. It's not syrupy at all. I will get the fat levels in my blood checked in a month or two, and see if now they are below "normal". I suspect the normal range isn't one that's particularly health-ful to an MSer.
Anyway - there's a bunch of published evidence that a low sat fat, high omega 3, diet is good for MSers. I'm just following the recommendations that have been well and truly proven by various scientific teams (summarised in the Jelinek book). Nothing groundbreaking in this....just wish the neuro's would advise their patients of this approach.
