How can this be?
Oct 24, 2015
... Hello Everyone, I had my cholesterol levels checked a few days ago and I just received the results of the test and I was shocked to find out that my triglyceride levels have actually went up by 64 points compared to the last test I had back in February of this year and I am struggling to figure out how they could have gone up by so much in such a short span of time and why...

... Kerry, Admirable that you are trying so hard. But there is a lot you can eat: fish, chicken, lean meats, low glycemic veggies and fruits (banana and apples are actually high, all berries would be better). Cheese and some other dairy products are fine. I think the paleo diet good but starting any low carb program your numbers might rise a bit at first, then they start to... (7 replies)

... Just posting back. I know this isn't a diet site but diet does affect my goal of lowering LDL/tcc. So I have eliminated carbs since I last posted. Much more difficult than I thought. I feel like I'm starving. I've had eggs, peanut butter, tilapia, lots of different unsalted nuts (pistachios, peanuts) limited fruits (apple, banana, handful of grapes). Avoided any refined...

... There's not really much I can do to improve my diet as is. The only source of sugar I eat is fruit. Banana in the morning and usually an apple and peanut butter at night for 'dessert'. I don't eat any cookies, junk food etc. ... (6 replies)
... Diet can do it. Maybe not for everyone, but if you are willing to improve your diet and exercise some, you can dramatically reduce your cholesterol. I went from a very bad diet high in saturated fats, cholesterol and processed foods to a diet very low in saturated fates and cholesterol and much more natural. I went from never working out to working out 5 times a week... (9 replies)
... My normal breakfast would be a bowl of cherrios with a banana(or something similar)-lunch would be crackers, cheese and a piece of fruit-dinner would be a big salad or chicken, rice with a vegetable. I don't eat many fatty things at all, which is why I am so confused. (9 replies)
... I like the idea of the banana in it also. ... (11 replies)

Niaspan ?
Nov 19, 2010
... I've been on Niaspan for nearly a year now and had really good luck with it. Sure, I have to be careful about what I eat around bed time when I take the Niaspan pill (1000mg for me), but I find that as long as I don't eat anything fatty and take the pill right after eating a banana, then head for sleep within 30 minutes of doing so I don't ever notice the flushing. My HDL... (4 replies)
Cholesterol is 229
Jul 21, 2010
... I'm starting to do that now. I switched from regular yogurt to non-fat, gone to 2% cheese and milk(the dietician said to start with the 2% milk than go to the others slowly so I can get used to them). The cakes I used to have for breakfast are gone and now I'm going to eat Cheerios with the 2% milk for breakfast and have a banana. I switched to the lowest saturated fat lunch... (5 replies)
... Ok, so good input from everyone. I don't eat as much fish as I should, so I am supplementing with fish oil (though probably not of high quality?) in the form of Kyolic EPA Aged Garlic Extract, which contains 10IU Vitamin E, 2000mg Omega-3's including 600mg EPA & 400mg DHA, and 240mg aged garlic extract powder. I take one dose of this with each of my 3 daily meals for a... (20 replies)
... Note that preflavored yogurts are high in added sugar. Plain yogurt to which you add your own whole fresh or frozen fruit is a better choice. Your breakfast seems to be high in fast digesting carbohydrates (toast, banana is a relatively fast digesting fruit; if the yogurt is preflavored, it is high in added sugar), which may not be good for your triglyceride levels. You... (20 replies)
... Thanks for the replies, everyone. I've completely cut out alcohol, I am down to 2 slices of whole-wheat bread daily and the fruits I consume consist of mainly banana's and apples with the occasional mixture of blackberries, raspberries and blueberries every night in place of ice cream (yes, I gave that up a couple of evenings ago and I don't realy miss it with the fruit in...

... Thanks so much for the positive comments! Ann...I remember reading and responding to your thread from a few days ago about your new numbers. I am the one who asked how many walnuts you had each day. :) About the only thing I do that you didn't mention is consume wine. After reading about the mounting evidence that wine helps cholesterol, I increased my intake from ... (12 replies)
... I just gave blood about 2 weeks ago and they now give a total cholesteral test when you give blood. I just checked the result and YIPEE my total was 168. I had upped my RYR to 1 in the am and 2 before bed. This is because in order to give blood I have to eat tons of liver and steak in order to pass the iron test. So all I can say is the RYR really works. I know a person... (4 replies)

... I saw a naturopath to help me lower my cholesterol and she told me the same thing about fruits. They are great but the sugar content was not helping my tri's. She is right about bananas and oranges but don't forget the grapes and strawberries. All other fruits were a go if I remember well. Learning to eat right is a lot of work but it will get easier with time and become... (9 replies)
