First of all I just found this site--Ive been looking for a forum on chlestrol and just happened to find this one this morning. I started having issues with my #s in June of 2009 I started out with total 270 triglercyrides 199 HDL 60 and LDL 170--Iwas bound anddetermined not to hae to go on meds also my blood pressure was so out of whack that dr said he didnt have any other choice so I had to go on meds for this--blood sugar as also off--but I managed to stay off meds for that also by losing 50 lbs and watching what I ate--Im craky and miserable but I managed to stay off meds-
so between june 2009 and july 2010 I steady got the #S down to total 213 tri 151 HDL 65 LDL 119
but then in Nov 2010 they started going back up again to a high of total 276 tri 119 HDL 78 LDL 176
so dr sent me for a NMR test which showed my chlestrol is the large fluffy kind and Im in the low risk area for everything they measure--since I freak out at the #S dr told me that when you figure in the ratio the HDL into the rest Im usually in the normal range--I should also mention that last april I was DXed with cancer and needed a total hystercomy--I dont know if that has anything to do with my yoyo #S however when I had them done the last time in July they were total 241 tri 193 HDL 61 and LDL 141--we had to change dr and this new one seems to be wantint to put me on meds yet unless I would be no longer in the normal range with ratios I dont agree--any advice or thoughts
nothing has changed in regards to my eating or excerise since june of 2009
Im just wondering what causes chlestrol to do up and down
