What's a supplement that lowers cholesterol?
- 01-30-2012, 06:02 AM
I am only trying to take preventative measures in a mild way to try and lower my LDL levels before the next time my cholesterol is checked. Nothing drastic or no serious reason to suddenly fix everything.
I'm just - as you said - trying to take better care of myself.

My doctor said to take an aspirin with niacin to reduce flushing. It feels like an allergic reaction to me, so I have taken a Benadryl with it and had good luck preventing flushing.

Good stuff Judo
To add to that, low carb diets seems to help all facets of problematic lipid level issues.

Those levels may alter based on the last thing you ate. Obviously a fasted blood draw is going to be a bit more accurate. That LDL isnt so bad considering your HDL is good. Individual numbers are one way to look at it but comprehensively lipid panels are ratios. Another example is thyroid panels; T3 Uptake doesnt mean much without TSH and TT4.
In your case:
Cholesterol = HDL+LDL+VLDL = 71+169+39 = 279 = Very high cholesterol
CHOL/HDL = 279/71 = 3.93 <---<4.5 is acceptable, shoot for 2-3 range
LDL/HDL = 169/71 = 2.38 <--- Thats pretty good, but not perfect
My initial though it something about diet. Im sure age is starting to play a role and I dont know how your work/family life are. Sometimes its genetic. These results arent alarming but adjustments could be made.
By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

I don't know if it would make a difference, but the night before, I had an "all you can eat" fried fish dinner with a few beers.
Had an appointment with my Doc the following morning for some poison ivy, and while I was there, he decided to go ahead and do a blood draw because it had been a while since my last one.
Hadn't planned on it, and surely wouldn't have eaten in the manner I did the night before!
