Lipids Test at 4 months
 
Nearly 4 months of LCHF has changed my Cholesterol levels as follows:

November '13

Total Chol 157
Trigly 131
HDL 41
VLDL Cal 26
LDL Cal 90

April '14

Total C 200
Trigly 83
HDL 45
VLDL Cal 17
LDL Cal 138

I have coronary artery disease and take 80 mg of Simvastatin, the max dose and have since '03. I have had high Cholesterol levels since the '80's and had a stent placed in '03 due to a blockage in an artery.

I have not shared these results with my cardiologist and may not until I get a LDL particle size test. What I have noticed since eating LCHF is better heart health, no symptoms of my heart not getting enough blood. I would frequently upon starting a hike up hill get chest, arm and jaw pain. These are warning signs of not getting enough blood to the heart and a precursor to a heart attack. These are gone. No bloating which would put pressure on my diaphragm and chest. Easier to breath deep and hard under exertion. My weight has stabilized for now about 174-175 lbs. I eat a lot, am very active and burn a lot of calories.

HDL up, triglycerides down. Excellent. The weight loss could have skewed it a bit, but no matter - good numbers.

Let us know your particle size, altho' there's no doubt in my mind that it's converting to pattern A.

Trig/HDL ratio down from 3.2 (rounded) to 1.84 in that desirable less-than-2 target range. Way to go! :yo:

Great results. I am living with heart problems for nearly 25 years . Have been on the LCHF WOE now for over one year. Like you, I have a greatly improved lipid profile since changing my eating ways.

I am sure your results will even improve further as time goes by. So many doctors should now seriously consider ETOH.

They can't do that! Too much carbohydrate in a hat! :eyebrows:

Very witty and had a good laugh.

However being a man of compassion [well,sometimes] I had taken into account the high carbohydrate issue. Not wishing upon anybody a glucose "peak" it would be specified that the carbohydrate would be one of natures fibres in accordance with the modern trends ie cotton which is of course a high polymer composed of repeating glucose molecules.

So as the LCHF WOE is based on science, so is the proposed "eating of the hat"suggestion.

The punishment lies in the mastication of the said hat.
