Do you or anyone in your family have a history of high cholesterol? From my understanding, dietary cholesterol usually doesn't have a big impact on HDL and LDL. I could be wrong though, I'm not doctor.

yeah i have it in my family. just wondering if anyone had cholesterol problemos

That LDL is quite high..ideally you want to be below 100. Unfortunatly, genetics play a large role but a clean diet always helps. If it keeps going up, talk to a doctor about taking a cholesterol medication like Lipitor.

I have absolutely nothing valauble to contribute to this thread.

I see you are attempting to compete with Tryska and her remarkable post count.

Your cholesterol level is very high. Have you consulted your doctor? Drug therapy may be an option.

Keto diets can have a significant affect on cholesterol. After you're off for a couple of months check it again and you'll have more reliable results.

my doctor said to give it 3 months, he said the cholesterol jump is common and could take a few months to actually go down. he suggested red yeast rice and fish oil, which i started already. my triglycerides are very good, however.
