Last week I had a blood test which showed my cholestral levels had risen since January.
My total cholestral was 185 (up 35)
LDL 110 (up 30)
HDL 42 (down 2)
I workout 6 to 7 days a week and eat about the same foods every day - including 12 egg whites oats 4 fruits 2 cups of vegetables. What could have caused the levels to rise? My HDL has always been low and my doctor said it was just genetic (an excuse that covers everything).
Also my fasting blood sugar rose from 85 to 99. Could the fruit have caused this?
At the moment I am doing the HCT-12 4 days a week and HIIT running/swimming for 30 mins on the other days, my levels should be in order.
Sometimes I think cholestral levels are an instrument to keep patients aware of their health and spending money and dont really have any valid use. Maybe bllood pressure alone is a good enough test to determine whether the blood vessels are getting blocked up.
Suggestions and comments welcomed. Thank you.
