... I'm going to have to make this quick, as I am leaving for work. My doctor is running a hypercholesterolemia test - plus the homocysteine and hr-CRP tests. The Lp(a), they are not set up to run yet. He didn't consider the testosterone test even worth worrying about. His opinion is that my elevated cholesterol level is probably genetic-based. He said that if the tests come back... (22 replies)

... I don't know what it does for your LDLs, but I do know that it is not good for your health. I was losing weight fast, and felt very weak and depressed. My weight dropped from 145lbs to around 139lbs. The object of the exercise was not to lose weight, which was not a problem to begin with. I don't agree with the "zero saturated fat" theory, as I felt the effects of zero fat on... (22 replies)

... Hi Steve, Sorry, I thought I read earlier in this thread that your doctor checked you homocysteine and CRP. Homocysteine, hs-CRP and Lp(a) are three risk factors that are believed to be the main cause of atherosclerosis. All three indicate inflammation. Homocysteine, when elevated, causes oxidized LDL. It's not elevated LDL, but oxidized LDL that is a risk factor... (22 replies)

... I never had either one checked by my doctor...and, as I am new to this, maybe you could expand upon that a little. My Lp(a) was not checked, either. I was just given the lipid panel test, and other tests which are not related to cholesterol. It's good to know about testosterone. I don't have a problem. I may, however, still discuss it with my doctor because of my age. ... (22 replies)

... Hi again Steve, Has your doctor checked your homocysteine, Lp(a) and hs-CRP? All of these are inflammatory markers. It's not just elevated LDL that causes coronary artery disease, it's oxidized LDL. Good medical article about Oxidized LDL and coronary artery disease. http://www.medpagetoday.com/Cardiology/AcuteCoronarySyndrome/tb/1318 Frankie (22 replies)

... I have to admit that I was not watching my diet too closely. I was basically eating whatever I felt like eating, not realising I had a problem. Buffet meals, McDonalds burgers and fries, ice cream and Hot Pockets - all of which are pretty high in fat. Now I am on chicken and subs, vegetables and fruit...and, as I stated earlier, I do feel better. I do feel that the numbers... (22 replies)

... I get plenty of exercise - both at work and at home. I cycle regularly, and my work is physically demanding. I am a little hyperactive, too. I have no weight problem - it is all internal. I had a father who died from heart trouble, and a paternal grandfather who died the same way. My father had high blood pressure. Both of them smoked. Maybe it is genetic. The smoking must...

... s, I think it could be either critical that you reduce your LDL a lot, or only desireable to get it down some. I think far too much weight is being placed on the cholesterol numbers these days when other concerns should be more important. Glad to hear your blood pressure is good. That's a definite plus. ...

... Well, it's a good thing you're finding this out now...at age 50. Although your HDL is pretty good, the LDL has to come down. I'm an advocate of LDL 100 or less. That means you would need a total of around 180, given your TRIGS and HDL. If you can accomplish that with diet..GREAT. If not....well...statins are the way to go. I was at LDL 160 a year ago and couldn't do a thing... (22 replies)
