    cholesterol numbers?

    Primal Fuel
    I recently had a body checkup, and doc told me I had high cholesterol. These are the numbers:

    Total Cholesterol: 247.5
    HDL: 108.3
    LDL: 127.6
    Triglycerides: 35.4

    Should I be concerned? I read somewhere that TC shouldn't be that that high even if HDL is high.

    I'm still breastfeeding my 10 month old daughter. I eat a lot of organ meats and fatty parts of meat. Hardly any processed food. I'm staying with my mom temporarily, and she always cooks with canola oil so that's still in my diet.

    Thanks for reading!

    With an HDL above 100 you're never going to have a TC under 200. I think your numbers look amazing. Your ratios are great!

    Crap those are amazing numbers, but they don't really mean very much.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Your doctor is suffering from low intelligence
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Those are pretty similar to my numbers- but yours are even better ratio-wise! Nice! With such low tris and such high HDL, I'm willing to bet the vast majority of those LDLs are fluffy and happy.
    Here are mine:
    Total: 231
    HDL: 80
    Trig: 49
    LDL: 141 mg/dl
    non-HDL: 151
    TC/HDL Ratio: 2.9
    10 year risk of CHD: <1%
    Have you read this/seen these clips? I have high cholesterol, and I don’t care
    They might make you feel a little better.
