High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

...You may want to talk to your doctor about insulin resistance. It can cause the high triglycerides and boost the blood pressure up a bit. By eating foods that are low to medium on the glycemic index, I lowered my tri's from 350 to 97. It also lowered my blood pressure from 130/80 to 118/75. I had it checked yesterday and it was 110/80.
...the only thing that has lowered my cholesterol has been taking a fiber supplement. I was taking 30 grams per day, 10 in the morning, 10 at noon and 10 in the evening. This lowered my total cholesterol from 225 to 183 and my tri's dropped to 77.
...I lowered my fiber intake to 20grams per day but I haven't been retested since I made the change. I take the WalMart equivilant of Metamusil but there's more palatable varieties out there, Benefiber was probably the easiest to take but is one of the more expensive ones.
