    I need a cholesterol expert! Please help!

    Primal Fuel
    Hi Guys,
    I have been eating paleo now for almost a year, I feel better than ever, I am 37 years old, male, 5'8, 160lbs at 7.5% BF. 29-30 Waist size.
    I had my Cholesterol checked today and here are my numbers, could someone please help me make sense of this??? Are these numbers anything to worry about??

    Total=270
    HDL=79
    LDL=174
    Trigs=26

    Thank you for your time;-)

    If you didn't get a VAP and your LDL was calculated then it is wrong. Get a VAP and HS-CRP and that will tell you the whole story. Those numbers do look fine though.

    Zero risk of damaging your arteries with those numbers
    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

    Get the Wheat Belly book by Dr. Davis from the library and read the chapter on cholesterol. Great primer, and wayyyy more than most know or will know. You will feel better about being better informed, and less fearful, too. He doesn't mention Primal diet, but is incredibly Primal aligned - I am through the book. My hubby has chosen to take statins and I will ask him to read this. (Hubby is also badly behaved in taking care of himself...) Hope it is useful to you.

    The straight dope on cholesterol
    This raises the question: if indeed LDL-P is always as good and in most cases better than LDL-C at predicting cardiovascular risk, why do we continue to measure (or calculate) LDL-C at all?

    Wow. My head is spinning. I am trying to understand what you need to know before taking statins. My doc has been after me for years to take statins based on a normal lipid panel. I refuse, but this article seems to indicate high LDL is bad whether it is type p or type c. Bottom line, what tests do I need and how bad do the numbers have to be to start taking statins? Thanks.

    There are no circumstances where it is advantageous to take statins.

    How Statins Really Work Explains Why They Don't Really Work.
