And, of course, it's your LDL that's high giving a ratio of TC/HDL in the 5's rather than below 4.0. I'd cut the saturated fat from the diet as much as posssible.

... at my ratio is worse, but the doctor said it was good in looking at the lowered Total Cholesterol. I am not positive that they can perform the long division. The HDL at 44 is exactly correct because that is exactly where it stays without the niacin. ... (1 replies)

... Thanks for the info!! I didn't know the statins didn't really help those with high HDL (at least in the elderly). Very interesting. I'm afraid to take medication, anyway. If I have to, I will, but I so want to go the natural route so that I don't have to worry about side affects or how it may affect my liver or kidneys. Thanks for responding!! (16 replies)
