I posted this on the doctor's forum in response to one member's question about trying to raise his HDL...as some of you know I was VERY concerned about trying to get my numbers right after a November blood panel and I tried a pretty aggressive regiment...here were my results. BTW...I am a 31 year old man...no "family history" of CAD
I was able to change my lipids as follows and it has been a real blessing of good news for me...
I did a progressive Niacin regimen twice a day for 14 weeks beginning with 250 mg and now taking 1500 mg daily...I also take CoQ10, and Pro-Vex CV. The other major thing I did was Agatston's diet and I have lost 30 lbs. (205-175) since December...
So these two strategies really have worked for me thus far.
BTW- I take the NON-slow release Niacin right out of the bottle...not Niaspan...but from what I understand they are the same thing.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments...hopefully this regimen will keep my lipids in good shape...
