I’m considering getting a blood test done as I’m coming close to 1 year vegan. Some of the things I know to look for: - B12 levels. I have a supplement. I rarely take it. - A recent post has brought up arsenic in brown rice. I have looked and am fairly comfortable with Aussie brown rice, but it might be worth considering a test to see anyway. - Vitamin D levels. - Cholesterol levels - fasting blood glucose -triglycerides The last test I had done was a few years ago. I was concerned at that time about elevated liver enzymes due to a beer habit. This was before I became vegan, and I was told it was nowhere near serious and they were a little elevated but nothing that wouldn’t come down given a few weeks without. Since becoming Vegan, I have not given up the beer, only battled to slow my intake. I know it is within my power to stop, it is an issue I’m working on and seeking counseling on. I started hitting it pretty hard after my partner died some years ago. Astute readers of my posts will have probably picked up on this due to some of my comments. I know a fair bit about excessive alcohol intake and ramifications, and how to offset those by making sure my vitamin and mineral levels are top notch, as well as eating enough fat (which is from whole plant sources these days, and is actually necessary for someone who drinks regularly or semi regularly). I may seem pretty anal about whole foods and not eating refined garbage, but it’s not just because they’re aren’t good for health, it’s because I don’t want to do anything worse than I already am with alcohol. Anyway, this blood test will be my first as a vegan. Anything else worth looking for or at?
