High Cholesterol Board Index


eagleheart,

I agree that now that you have been diagnosed with CAD, you need to keep your LDL low...

I would continue the vitamin-c and vitamin-e however, since you also want to keep Oxidized LDL to a minimum. Look up 'CD-36' and 'SRA' cholesterol receptors. THey tend to latch on to 'oxidized' cholesterol far, far more than unoxidized cholesterol - and accumulate them into plaques... Keeping LDL from becoming oxidized is very important in preventing or reversing CAD...

Indicentally, your TC of 205 and LDL of 143 were barely considered 'borderline high' even by the revised ATP III guidelines. Makes me continue to wonder why so many with normal or low cholesterol levels develope CAD if high-cholesterol is such a major CAD factor... There is more to CAD than just bad cholesterol numbers - high Lp(a), high CRP, low HDL, high Homocysteine are also a big part of the picture.

But, studies have indicated that when LDL goes <= 70, atherosclerotic progression stops. So in your case, I'd try to keep the LDL as low as possible, but I would NOT give up the anti-oxidants...
