I want below 150
Jun 13, 2005
... Alaska, As an ex body builder myself I would say to try and lose some weight first and foremost. Even though a playing weight of 240 might have been OK in college, years later it might be to much. Meat can be problematic but if it is lean cut, fat removed, it should be fine. It sounds like you are getting fish, but is it fried? Is any of your meat fried? The best... (12 replies)

... Alaska, Why did you chose the 150 and 70 numbers as targets to strive for (just curious)? Your numbers seem very good to me. Going even lower is not necessarily a good thing, and I think the only way you will realistically get to these lower numbers is to go to 20mg of Lipitor. You should be careful about combining drugs - I would NOT recommend Policosanol in... (12 replies)

... What kind of diet? In my opinion (and many others agree), no one type of diet is right for everyone. If one type of diet doesn't get the desired results, it might be worth exploring an alternative diet that focuses on different nutrient ratios. In general, low fat diets aren't very effective for improving blood lipids in anyone. By improving lipids I mean raising... (30 replies)

... Hi Sara, I think SOMEBODY screwed up those results somewhere. Readings of LDL=235 and LDL=187 show too much of a swing for one month without some kind of DRASTIC intervention between the two. In either case, though, the results are terrible, and coupled with a high Lp(a) and a high C-Reactive protein, intervention of some kind is MANDATORY; your risks are just too high... (7 replies)

... Just looking for some help, as I really know nothing about these numbers and what they mean, except for what my dr. told me. I went for my annual OB/GYN appt. in January and my cholesterol came back at 313. LDL was 235 and HDL was 56. Triglycerides were normal; blood sugar normal. Went for a follow-up appt. last week at a different dr. and my numbers came back: Total:... (7 replies)

... Hi, :) Thanks for that information. I have not been told what level to aim for. What complicates my situation is a chronic kidney disease. It perpetuates the inflammatory processes and also effects the cardiac function. I still have a lot of reading to do.
