I see that the cholesterol issue is a hot topic so thought I would get your collective advice on my blood numbers:
HDL = 107
Triglycerides = 56
LDL = 148
Total Chol = 266
I have been following primal for 1 year and the HDL has been pretty constant over 100 and my tri levels have been dropping, with the LDL number increasing... I have finally lost the battle with my MD and he gave me a script for a statin drug... and I don't want to take it... any thoughts/advice??? From what I have read on the forums, it seems that my LDL is most probably the good fluffy type, but is there anything else I can do (short of taking the statin) to lower the LDL number to get the MD off my case??? thanks!
