Diet (Definition)

refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

My husband has high levels of LDL cholesterol, 146 ldl. Diet is great. Could it be genetic, if so is there a test?

My husband has high levels of LDL cholesterol, 146 ldl.  Diet is great.  Could it be genetic, if so is there a test?

High LDL Cholesterol: Diet is not the only cause of elevated cholesterol. Cholesterol is mobilized as a healing molecule, and is elevated if the body is having inflammation. If he inflammation is in the arteries this leads to vascular disease, stroke, and heart attack. Decreasing sugar and processed foods helps, exercise, and anti-inflammatory herbs. Statin drugs also lower inflammation. Berkley cholesterol panel. ...Read more

Need more: You need a more thorough evaluation as your lipids have more abnormalities that high triglycerides; LDL is too high and HDL is low, both bad. Please consult your doctor for advise about diet, exercise, and medication. ...Read more

High blood pressure 160 /100 my age 29 y.Test show hi level of  triglycerides , hi level (ldl)  low level( hdl) been a year on healthy diet lose 10 kg?

Keep going : The current weight is not provided, but if not at ideal body weight, further weight will likely help. Weight and diet are two pieces of the puzzle. Environmental factors and genetics predisposition are others. Blood pressure of 160/100 is hi for a 29 year old and most would start blood pressure medications at this point. Great job on the < 20 pounds weight loss. ...Read more

Last month my LDL was 227mg/dl now it is 105mg/dl through diet,exercise and statin for a month. Is my risk for CAD is still very high?

Getting better.: You've lowered your LDL rather dramatically and, thereby, have reduced your risk of CAD going forward, as long as it stays this way. Would be even better if the triglycerides are low and the HDL is high, but as an individual parameter this is a great improvement. ...Read more

Hyperlipidemia: Both. You must get to exercising to burn off these extremely high amounts of triglycerides. This will also raise your HDL levels. Then the statins will work on the total and LDL levels. ...Read more

My HDL and triglycerides are very normal, but i have very High LDL what could be the reason? diet is minimal and not fatty,,I'm thin and have crohn's

Probably genetic: We talk little about the genetic component to LDL problems but they're actually a bigger factor than diet and exercise -- we simply can't do anything about them. And much of the traditional "wisdom" about diet and cholesterol probably isn't even true. Stay fit and be ready to accept medication should your physician and perhaps a second opinion consider it right for you. ...Read more
