I'm hearing a lot about the benefits of plant based diets. How effective is it for lowering BP and cholesterol? I don't like the idea of pills.

Effective for some: While difficult to maintain, a vegan whole-food diet has been shown effective in preventing heart disease in a number of epidemiologic studies. This idea has been pioneered by dr. Esselstyn in his book "prevent and reverse heart disease" and the movie "forks over knives."

Studies have shown that 5-10 g of daily fiber lowers cholesterol and is associated with lower blood glucose readings. This can be found in a bowl of oatmeal or cheerios be cautious about dietary supplements. ...Read more

For 8-10 years, I supplemented with a high dosage of soy lecithin for its cholesterol-lowering and anti-atherogenic benefits. Recently this is not popular. Is it likely I did any damage? No symptoms.

No harm done: Soy products are healthy, yet there is always some controversy about all good nutrients, off and on.
You should eat a healthy diet with ample amount of fruits, grains and veggies and avoid excess of animal fats. Top it up with more physical activity (walk daily) and you will not have to worry about taking any supplements!! . ...Read more

I'm 65 & have a cholesterol 164 cholesterol count & 3:1 hdl/ldl ration. How might I benefit having a high-sensitivity CRP test?

Overall CVD risk: Your hdl/ldl ratio 3:1? Not reverse? That is highly unusual especially if you are not already on medications like a statin. It would be helpful to know your actual LDL and hdl. In any case, if you are at increased cvd risk for any reason, checking hs-crp may help you in deciding whether starting or upping your lipid management. If more than 2.0, you may be at increased risk for cvd. ...Read more

I have been reading up on the benefits of Alfalfa supplements. I have high cholesterol and stage 3 Glomerulosclerosis and High BP. Should I use it?

It's placebo: Hi. Alfalfa is placebo, but probably harmless. Don't neglect to use real medicine for your hypertension and dyslipidemia. Placebos are fine for the "worried well" (of which there are many). However, you have REAL medical problems, and I suggest you stick with drugs shown to be effective and safe. Good luck. ...Read more

What is cholesterol?

What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol control: Holesterol comes from two sources: your body and food. Your liver and other cells in your body make about 75 percent of blood cholesterol. The other 25 percent comes from the foods you eat. Cholesterol is only found in animal products.

A cholesterol screening measures your level of HDL and ldl. Hdl is the "good" cholesterol which helps keep the LDL (bad) cholesterol from getting lodged into your artery walls. A healthy level of HDL may also protect against heart attack and stroke, while low levels of HDL (less than 40 mg/dl for men and less than 50 mg/dl for women) have been shown to increase the risk of heart disease.

If you need to increase your HDL to your reach your goals, studies show that regular physical activity can help your body produce more hdls. Reducing trans fats and eating a balanced, nutritious diet is another way to increase hdl. If these measures are not enough to increase your HDL to goal, your healthcare practitioner may prescribe a medication specifically to increase your hdls.

Ldl cholesterol is the "bad" cholesterol. When too much of it circulates in the blood, it can clog arteries, increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke.

Ldl cholesterol is produced naturally by the body, but many people inherit genes from their mother, father or even grandparents that cause them to make too much. Eating saturated fat, trans fats and dietary cholesterol also increases how much you have. If high blood cholesterol runs in your family, lifestyle modifications may not be enough to help lower your LDL blood cholesterol. Everyone is different, so work with your doctor to find a treatment plan that's best for you.
Most importantly, having a good doest and exercise will lead to having higher hdl's. ...Read more
