Since then, I've practiced an extremely healthy lifestyle. I've lost 6 kg, I'm never eating animal fat, just chicken and fat fish, no added sugar, lots of vegetables, no white bread, more oats, no trans fat, etc. My new results:
Honestly I don't think I'm able to practice a better lifestyle. I'm eating extremely healthy, doing exercise 3-4 times a week, I never smoke, I'm drinking 2-3 glasses of white wine pr week, I can't find a single mistake I'm doing.
Will those values improve after some more time do you think? Which values are better?
By the way my BP is 100/60, BMI 22,8 and resting heart rate 50.
Howdy, the first set are better in my mind, I think that an LDL of 130 which is the maximum for the current guideline along with an HDL of 35 is not as good as having a slightly higher LDL and a much higher HDL. Tri's are really not that telling and are the most affected by diet, even over the weeks preceding a test so I don't always consider them as dangerous unless very high so having a very low number does not off sett having a very low HDL. Really, it is most likely a tossup, but I would opt for a higher HDL even though the medical thinking is treat LDL first. If I were to change anything it would be more exercise. I did not see a significant increase in my HDL until I started the 7 days a week exercise routine I'm on now.
Having spoken before, I can't say I know of anything you're doing wrong either. I think I would retest in 30 days for grins and see which set seem to be the norm.
Your blood test results are good. However the HDL is a bit low to me. Whatever you are doing now , good diet, exercises, and no smoking, watch your weights I think it is great! however ask your dr. to see how can you improve your good HDL?
I've been using all natural remedies. Get from amazon reading the rating from one of the product from amazon at a glance. Tried myself for this product. 6 mos, the results were great. Off course I 've changed my diet, doing yoga, taichi exercises and not taking any candies at all as my doctor told me that sugar or candies can turn in triglycerides. Eliminate all of the goodies that I treated myself before, two eggs a week, no burger, french fried, no red meat, lobster. lots of fish and brown rice, twice a week.
The results are so incredible and I will keep doing this, taking the natural remedies, eating the right food, and regular exercises. We have only one life so make the best of it after all! I do not want to drop death before my time! period!
triglycerides from 229 down to 89
HDL from 58 to 72
LDL from 171 to 112
VLDL is 18

Nothing is wrong with all of us! just the bad lifestyle of habits that causes problems!
I've been asking several doctors how to increase HDL. They say exercise, alcohol on a daily basis (which I refuse), unsaturated fat and no trans fat (I eat lots of unsaturated fat and no trans fat). They also say quit smoking (I don't smoke) and weight loss (I'm not overweight). So it seems daily exercise is what's most beneficial.
Maybe those changes just takes time? I know it's fairly easy to reduce total cholesterol but it's possibly harder to change the lipoproteins carrying them?
Xgamang: Your cholesterol is great, congrats and thanks for your advice!
Jon: Thanks for the help, always great to hear from you too!
