High Cholesterol Board Index

Hi there,
First off, Cholesterol is not the big's an indicator that your body is under oxidative stress. It's the reason diabetics have such high numbers, they are among the most oxidatively stressed people there are.
Oxidative stress implies that one is loaded with highly reactive free radicals that damage cell membranes, RNA, DNA, and almost anything there is. Cholesterol is used by the body in the brain, in cell membranes, in myolin sheaths around the nerves, and most important here, as the body's own endogenous antioxidant.
The killers are LDL's and VLDL's and triglycerides. With the presence of free radicals, and high free iron and copper in the serum, they are oxidized and peroxidized. These are the damage makers.

___How about coming back with your total lipid panel and we can work from there....
_________Until then, God bless,
