High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

High LDL...
Nov 5, 2008
I just had my annual physical done. My cholesterol test was as follows:

Total Cholesterol: 267
Triglycerides: 110
HDL: 62
[B]LDL-C: 183[/B]
[B]Non HDL: 205[/B]
Chol/HDL: 4.3
VLDL: 22
TG/HDL: 1.79

I can't figure out why this has escalated like this. I avoid fast food like the plague, and live on salads throughout the day. I now, exclusively drink Diet Rite. I eat buffet meals occasionally, but I pick the healthier fayre. I never eat stuff like ice cream and obviously high fat foods. I did start eating Atkins bars though - which contain saturated fat. I guess it is back to oats, Cheerios, Healthy Heart OJ, and fish oils. What EPA/DHA levels should I be looking at to reduce this?

Any feedback gratefully accepted,
