Is there an ultimate diet for some one with high cholesterol?

Is there an ultimate diet for some one with high cholesterol?

VeryLowCarb, Hi Fat: Cholesterol, a fat sterol molecule made by every single animal cell, is not the primary or correct issue for artery disease. The correct issue is the fat carrying particles called HDL & ldl; look up "nmr particle test" on google. I have answered these & similar questions many times previously on healthtap, please look. Ancel keys promoted the myths about cholesterol & saturated fat foods. ...Read more

I have high cholesterol 230, diet does not help, what should I do?

It depends: Cholesterol is made up of LDL (bad), HDL (good), and triglycerides (bad). You need a fasting cholesterol check to see what your ldl, HDL and trigs are. Your LDL goal is based on your individual risk factors, so talk it over with your healthcare provider - you may or may not need a medicine. A good resource for further cholesterol or other prevention information if my health checklist 2012. ...Read more

What should i watch in my diet if i have high cholesterol? And which foods to cut?

High cholesterol: Hi. High cholesterol generally shows a rather poor response to dietary intervention. It helps to know your overall profile. If "high" is due to HDL, no problem. If "high" is due to LDL, it helps to cut saturated fat out of diet (cutting cholesterol has little effect). Healthy diet & ideal body weight also help the LDL be the large, buoyant LDL (less dangerous than the small, dense LDL). Good lucK! ...Read more

High fiber foods include beans, whole grain products, fresh vegetables and fresh fruit. Processed foods, meat chicken and fish and dairy have no fiber and should be a lesser part of your diet. ...Read more

How can I believe my diagnosis of high cholesterol? I eat a healthier diet than anybody I know!

Genes: Much of pop and government claims about diet in general and its effects on cholesterol are at best overstatements. A great number of factors contribute both to overall atherosclerosis risk and to cholesterol level, and the one that you can do nothing about is your genes. I trust you're already a fitness guy as well; it's perhaps time to repeat the labs and/or talk about medication. Good luck. ...Read more

High Cholesterol (Definition)

Cholesterol, a fat made by all our cells, has never been the correct issue but was promoted because (as a fat within all lipoprotein particles) it was cheaper to measure & if very high (esp. Fasting) tended to correlate with high LDL particle concentrations. In the later 1970's lipoprotein measurements cost $5, 000/sample. The NMR particle test, <$100, brought the LDL costs way ...Read more
