... "Levels below 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 for 3 or more months are a sign of chronic kidney disease. A GFR result below 15 mL/min/1.73 m2 is a sign of kidney failure and requires immediate medical attention." I'd be wanting a retest at the 90 day point. Avoid excessive protein intake (that's the hardest for kidneys to metabolize, many people consume 3 to 5 times as much protein as... (6 replies)
LDL below 60
Aug 18, 2011
... Nevertheless, a high protein, low carb diet can certainly be the answer for many people, even though they might find it very hard to adhere to. I'll bet your triglycerides are very low as well, right? ... (1 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. It seems to me that, rather than just one or two drugs from this class, the whole statin family of drugs has... (3 replies)

Lower Numbers??
Dec 9, 2006
... Good grief. You're numbers are about as perfect as any human can get. The only guidelines I know about that require an LDL below 70 (not 60) are for people with established heart disease, like me. Do you already have heart disease??? I doubt there is any human who can naturally sustain an LDL below 60 (I can't do it even with lots of meds, and lots of people with heart... (24 replies)
... It really depends on how much fat, and how much I overeat. I can take mine as low as 55 mg/dL, and as long as I exercise, and maintain my weight, I am capped at 84 mg/dL. The difference was that my HDL that corresponded with the 55 LDL was 44 mg/dL or less, while my HDL that comes with the 84 mg/dL LDL is generally > 60 mg/dL. All of this is unmedicated (now). I am not... (8 replies)

... I guess I was lucky and did not suffer adverse effects from the Tricor (it is a fibrate rather than a statin). At this stage, weight loss and diet change keep my triglycerides down below 60 mg/dL. They once were well in excess of 400. As for the fish oil, I do use that religiously. I take 3 2-g capsules daily. I think the minimum therapeutic dose is 3g/day. I am not... (16 replies)

... You are right, as there has been no damage to your heart, nor is blood flow being impeded. Cardiovascular disease might be a more appropriate term here. Statins can reduce your chances of having a heart attack, and can reduce the speed at which plaque builds up. If you took a high enough dose of a statin to lower your cholesterol super low (LDL below 70), I think there are... (7 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)
