    well rats, I thought the link was to his "previous post" which now is a broken link. take your HDL and divide it by your triglyceride and that ratio should ideally be close to 2.3 or above. (or 1 or better if the measure is mg/dl)

    and for me I think it will be more important to plan and weigh out my food for my ud's to prevent a tendency to keep adding cream/butter/coconut oil to everything!

    OK.. HDL is 64, triglicerides is 85.

    64 divided by 85= .75

    ??????

    I will be planning and weighing UP's in the future.

    ok, when I get home I will see if I don't have the real article I was trying to send you. Sorry, that just doesn't look right does it.

    Ok, using the calculator on the site you provided it says:
    total cholesterol HIGH RISK
    LDL VERY HIGH RISK
    HDL OPTIMAL
    TRIGLYCERIDES NORMAL

    Ratios
    Cholesterol/HDL ratio is 4:30 which they say is GOOD
    LDL/HDL ratio is 3.031 which they say is GOOD
    Triglycerides/HDL is 1.3828 is IDEAL

    So.. while the ratio's seem fine.. the total and LDL are not.

    So to make you feel better about the total and the LDL you need to read the studies that this guy posts...HEALTHY DIETS AND SCIENCE

    he generally just gives a summary of the study and a link if you want to read the whole thing. I would say you are in pretty good shape.

    yep, mine were pretty close to yours and the doc wanted me to start statins, but I declined. I will take my chances with my diet/genetics as opposed to those things!

    I am not planning on statins and next time I go to the Doc I will take some research. Although, my doctor is pretty open minded.

    UP yesterday was a bust. I WILL GET THE HANG OF THIS. I will also call it what it was, a pity feast. DD had an appt last night, we went and my dinner was awesome (and primal) UNTIL the free tiramisu cake that accompanies it. Who knew? I can honestly say when I got home and snacked it was not because I was hungry. DD's appt was tough last night and I was not feeling well. This morning while putting on my make-up (something I have not done in 2 days because I dont feel well) I noticed a bulge on the right side of my neck. So, glands are swollen.. yeah me. I started some Afrin. Whether it was 1. the rapid change in weather, or 2. lack of sleep catching up with me or 3. rapid change in altitudes on vacation or 4. swimming and residual water in the ear, I have no idea. I guess it does not matter.

    Today is a DD and my bone broth is done. Perfect for today and how I am feeling anyway.

    FBS 116 (not bad considering the crap from last night)
