... Actually, The higher HDL is my most recent result. Not sure why that increased about 25%. I've been eating more fish and started drinking 1 beer a night....which must have raised my trigs and total cholesterol. My ratios are better, but I don't like the LDL number so I will start Red Yeast Rice with CoQ10 start of the year. (6 replies)
... Some doctors' hey? Your ratios are good and Statin therapy should not have been offered. Your Total Cholesterol of 168 is DESIRABLE Your LDL of 113 is NEAR OPTIMAL Your HDL of 40 is HIGH RISK Your Triglyceride level of 79 is NORMAL The figures above and more important, the ratios below do not support the Doc's statement of a cardiac risk even for ten years in...

... Correct Machaon. Large bouyant LDL even if figure is elevated presents no problems in the arteries as the HDL 'mops' them up and returns them to the Liver with ease. With large bouyant HDL particle size in addition, the owner should be walking around containing newly plumbed kitchen pipes. lol Well done. Yack. (2 replies)

Lowering LDL a bit
Nov 30, 2017
... Hello again everyone. I recently had my annual physical and everything looked good but my LDL cholesterol, which wasn't all that bad I guess. I wanted to ask as the person did below me a few posts about trying policosanol this time instead of RYR and CoQ10. The cost of using RYR and the CoQ10 is quite a bit more than I would like to spend per month and the policosanol looks... (1 replies)
