Big hello to all you groks out there.
After spending 6 months on statins, I decided to come off and give Primal a try. Got some lab results back yesterday - very frightening!
So - before statins (Feb '09): Total 277, HDL 53, LDL 193, Tri-G 107
After statins (6 months, Nov '09): Total 195, HDL 55, LDL 129, Tri-G 58
No statins, primal (3 months, Mar '10): Total 355, HDL 72, LDL 269, Tri-G 77
I'd say I was about 90-95% comliant. Certainly no wheat, very little sugar.
My weight is 180lbs, 6'2" tall.
I take 5000 U vit D + fish oil.
Has anybody got any ideas about what's going on or what I could do?
