    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    You have low D (I presume D3?). Slightly too high homocysteine, which is sort of "normal" for vegetarians. Insulin is very good, below the average I thinkk. Your doctor should have indicated the min and max range on your results form.
    CRP I don't remember the normal range, nor PSA.

    Given the importance of insulin as strong predictive marker I was happy about the results.Is it common for vegans to have such low insulin?...(vegans that follow the McDougall/Fuhrmnn model.)
