High Cholesterol Message Board


High Cholesterol Board Index


Wow, I typed 'high cholesterol' into Google and I am so glad that I came upon this messageboard. (Isn't Google the best thing ever?) Anyway, I thought I would post my results.

A little background...I am a 31 year-old male. I had my cholesterol tested in 9/04 and it came back TOT-237/LDL-169/HDL-53/Tri-70. This was after years and years of being lazy, eating lots of frozen pizzas, McDonald's, etc. I read "The 8 week cholesterol cure", which really made sense to me and I dedicated myself to running 3 miles several days per week, eating lots of veggies, using olive oil, eating oatmeal and taking fish oil pills. In Jan 2005, I had my blood rechecked and the results were TOT-207/LDL-145/HDL-52/Tri-50. My wife and I had our first baby in April 2005, and I stopped going to the gym and went back to my poor diet. I realized how far I had slipped, and went in for another set of blood tests last week. The results were TOT-206/LDL-142/HDL-43/Tri-105. Now we have purchased a treadmill and I started walking 4.2 mph for 30 minutes every day. I am back to my good diet. No more trans-fats and I will limit saturated fats. Additionally, I started taking 750 mg ENDUR-ACIN, and plan to ramp that up to 1500 mg/day. I'm going to have my blood drawn again in six weeks and will report the results.

Does anyone have any other helpful tips? My family has a history of heart attack/stroke and I want to make sure I do everything I can to live a long life! Again, I'm really glad I found this board!

Welcome to the site, and CONGRATS. on the new baby. Your numbers aren't too bad, and like U said, U kinda slipped off your routine due to the baby. I'm sure when U get back to the exercising and the normal diet those Trigs. will fall again. Just keep away from those fast food joints, prepacked foods, sugary stuff, white bread, rice and walk off those calories. U can also try 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon each morning, I use the stuff from my spice rack, even though they sell them in capsule form. Just make sure it is fresh, and U can get it in any store, plus it is cheap!!!

Best wishes, and enjoy the new baby....... :wave:
