High Cholesterol Board Index

[QUOTE=lam41565;3746264]My husband got his reading back and it was 600. His bp was also a little high 130/90. Dr put him on Tricor. He has been on this for about 6 weeks. He went back for more blood work and chol was 450 still ...bp same. Dr said he is at high risk for heart attack. He is only 42 years old. She told him to start taking fish oil also and to come back in a couple of months.

He eats fairly well and exercises. He has lost about 25 lbs within the last 6 months so I am a little confused as to why now it would go up.

Any suggestions or comments welcome![/QUOTE]

...When I went on a diet based on the Glycemic index, along with the drop in Triglycerides from 350 to 97, I also saw a drop in my blood pressure from 135/80 to 118/75. He may have metabolic syndrome (which is what I have) which is the pancreas releasing too much insulin when these high GI carbs are eaten. Or high GI meals. High GI carbs can be eaten if their eaten with the lower ones to balance them out.

...You may want to find a reputable diet plan based on the Glycemic index for him to follow for a while and see if it helps. I got mine in the diet section of the book store.
