Minimally, if at all: Remember most of the cholesterol in your body is made by your liver. Only about 1/4 of it comes in through your diet, and if you are adequately fasting (at least 8 hours), most of the dietary cholesterol should be out of your system. Also, the total and HDL (good) cholesterols are not affected much by diet, and can be checked without fasting. ...Read more

Sleeping can additionally affect the autonomic responses. I suspect this is normal physiology for you and represents your body's response to these factors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

They'll help you sort out what might actually have merit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have a high LDL of 188 and a high tsh.. Otherwise a healthy lifestyle.. Can LDL be high due to abnormal thyroid?.. Do i need any drugs to lower my ldl
Thyroid and lipids: A persistently high TSH would indicate long-term hypothyroidism that can lead to high cholesterol. Most clinicians would treat with thyroid hormone if TSH repeatedly > 10; restoring normal thyroid levels usually lowers LDL by modest amount. There is a direct correlation between higher TSH and higher ldl. If the LDL is then still too high, you may need other rxs based upon overall cardiac risks. ...Read more

This vital protective molecule can naturally be elevated with regular cardiovascular exercise and low carb diets. ...Read more
