Carey, need your advice.

Just did my health screening n a bit worried abt my LDL reading.

For a person strictly on the low carb n sugar + high fats diet, what kind of cholesterol profile should he be seeing? Not tat i'm on it, I cheat way too much

Triglycerides : should be low(which is good cos trigs are bad)

HDL : should be high (which is good as HDL is considered good cholesterol)

How abt LDL? Should a person on LCHF diet be seeing high or low LDL?

Mine is high, which is worrying as LDL is considered bad cholesterol. In fact, the high LDL combined with high HDL resulted in a high total cholesterol reading (although the 'Total/HDL ratio' is still normal).

Remembered you saying that the more impt reading is Triglycerides, but i'm not sure if a 'low Triglycerides with high LDL' profile is considered 'okay'.

My doc asking me to consider cholesterol meds ... Not keen. I'll rather go back to drinking veg soups n eating fishes n cutting back on buffets to reduce my LDL. When i did it in '09, my LDL only 63 nia, which is optimal, but its very sian lor.

Gum sia in advance!
Google for cholesterol con and also cholesterol myth...hahah

Cholesterol readings don't tell us anything - likelihood is as good as striking 4D or TOTO IMHO

Jokes aside, LDL is an estimated number - the size of the particle is more important (not measured in the standard test)

Trigs should be under 100 (mine is under 50) and HDL should be close to 100 but absolute numbers are meaningless...hahah

Go for ratios as a trend tracker bah

Lastly, our bodies need cholesterol to function - dietary cholesterol only make up a very small part - the bulk of the cholesterol is produced by our bodies...hahah

Wats your LDL figure?

My 'Total/HDL' ratios are as follows from '10 to '14.
2.5 ...... 2.2 ...... 2.9 ..... 2.1 ..... 2.7
Seems fairly consistent n within the normal range of < 4.5.

How you find the food there? I only find the roasted beef n durian paste not bad nia. Rest not nice. They have quite an varied array of teas too.


Toons, before you take any cholesterol meds; I encourage you to read http://www.amazon.com/The-Great-Chol.../dp/1592335217.
Thanks, tats y i dun wanna eat cholesterol meds. I'll rather eat like a beggar if the high LDL is really a killer.

LDL is not the killer...never was

Trigs are increasingly more important - need to get them to below 100

More useful ratio should be Trig/HDL and should ideally be <1
