How To Increase Ldl Particle Size
Lower blood sugar : High cholesterol is linked to high Insulin levels and hormonal changes as a result of it. I suggest not mixing animal protein with starch but veggies. Also cardio and yoga and fish oil or flax seed oil to raise your good cholesterol (hdl). Also get a particle size to see if your dense LDL is high or the larger size. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
HF/LC ↓BodyFat &Meds: Low fat theory by ancel keys; long promoted; opposite evidence. ? & efficient body fat is healthy. Ldl & HDL are complex particles, 80-100 proteins/particle: transport all fat molecules in h20 outside cells. Each LDL particle carries thousands of cholesterol, triglyceride, phospholipid & other fat molecules. Cholesterol often misleading, get NMR particle test. Statins?ldl niacin?hdl, carbs?ldl?hdl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Foods Meds Exercise: Hdl & LDL are complex protein particles which transport all fat molecules in the water outside cells. Get NMR particle test for accurate data. Carbs(sugar) & obesity raise LDL & especially ? large HDL levels. Thus go hf/lc foods. Statins & chol absorption inhibitors tend to ? LDL particle concentrations. Cutting carbs, Niacin & intense exercise usually ? hdl, esp large-hdl particle concentrations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Diet, exercise and weight loss are often helpful. The optimal level of LDL depends on the presence of coronary artery disease or the existence of other risk factors such as diabetes, hypertension, cigarette smoking, family history of premature coronary disease and obesity. Patients with these risk factors need drug therapy with statins or other medications to attain very low ldl. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Exercise: While HDL levels are determined by heredity, one can increase HDL by engaging in consistent, vigorous, exercise on a regular basis. Some medications help in raising HDL but do not have positive effects on health through drugs. Alcohol also increases HDL but is not recommended. See this site for more information. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/tutorials/managingcholesterol/htm/index.htm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Find and Fix Causes: The first step is to determine if the LDL is elevated due to an acquired medical condition. If treatable conditions are identified i would manage those and start diet, exercise and lifestyle modifications. Soluble fiber and plant stanols can be used to lower ldl. If medications are needed options include statins, agents to decrease gut cholesterol absorption (ezetimibe, colesevelam), and niacin. ...Read more
Not easily: The LDL and HDL ratio is not routinely advised. A better calculation is perhaps cholesterol minus hdl-c or non-hdl-c. In many instances this number should not exceed 30 beyond your ldl-c goal which is based on your own risk. If your ldl-c goal is 70 then non-hdl goal is 100 or less. The triglyceride/hdl ratio may be predictive of risk as well as diabetes. Some believe it should be less than 3. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Live with it.: Sorry, but you cannot make your penis grow. What you see - is what you get - nothing more - nothing less. In spite of all the ads you see on the internet, you have to live with what you have. There are some surgical procedures to release the penile suspensory ligament, giving you more "useable" length to what you already have, but this can also effect other issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Eventually, perhaps: Generally, the initial approach for most cholesterol problems involves lifestyle changes--healthy eating habits & regular cardiovascular exercise. If this is not enough, we consider medical therapy.

Diet & exercise: Moderate exercise (about 30 minutes five times a week) reduces LDL cholesterol and raises HDL cholesterol. Smoking can lower HDL levels, so stop smoking if you do. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein. Include monounsaturated fats in your diet- olive oil/canola oil. Moderate consumption of alcohol may also positively impact HDL levels. 1 glass of wine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
LDL and HDL: In general high LDL cholesterol is associated w/ higher risk of heart & artery disease, while high HDL is generally protective. Genetics is a major determinant of what your levels will be; diet has some influence. Treatments include diet, exercise, & drugs including statins, fibrates, binding resins, & recently some fancy biologic drugs. Medical guidelines on who/how to treat are now very detailed ...Read more
Can regress artery: plaque. HDL is not cholesterol but complex protein particles, 1, 2 or 3 ApoA-1 organizing proteins plus ~100 other proteins. HDL are fat/lipid scavenger particles: cells having excess lipids can bind HDL-particles to remove lipids, then excrete the HDL-particles into the extracellular water around the cell & the HDL-particles will carry the fats elsewhere; potentially to the liver for excretion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
VeryLowCarb, Hi Fat: Cholesterol wrong focus; see many questions I have answered covering this topic. While "theory" that hi sat. Fat foods (started: 1953 by ancel keys) was the problem, evidence from research & actual clinical trials is opposite to this.
