High Cholesterol Board Index


All my lipid levels were great with the exception that my HDL was at 36...4 below the minimum. I'm 29 years old, healthy with no history of heart problems in the family.

**edit** I should also add I don't smoke and have normal BP but I'm a bit of a hypochondriac so things like this make me really nervous and panic...
***

Total Chol: 166
LDL: 116
Triglicerydes: 53
HDL: 36

I've been loosing weight and still loosing more. I'm 20 pounds from the weight goal now (which is 195). I thought that if I really focus on my diet and exersise, I'll be able to raise my HDL naturally. But the doctor just threw 500mg Niaspan at me and I'm a bit nervous now. I've been told by others that I'm fine.... I don't want to start on some maintence drug for the rest of my life if I don't have to. I've planned to work on it naturally for a year and get rechecked in a year to see if I've raised my HDL 4 points...
Suggestions?
