Letthemusicplay6 Posted December 17, 2013 Share Posted December 17, 2013 Hey everyone! I'm not sure if this topic/questions should even be under the success story forum. Since well...I'm not really sure if it belongs here (Which I would really appreciatate that being cleared up if possible) A little bit about me: I'm a 32 year old male that weighs about 145 or so and is 5'6". I go for 5 mile jogs about 5-6 times a week. High Cholesterol in genral runs in my family. Back in Jan of this year is where I first started having problems HDL: 45 LDL: 148 Triglycerides: 151 In May it got worse: HDL: 40 LDL: 173 Triglycerides: 187 Doct put me on statin drug after that and in a couple months it changed a lot: HDL: 46 LDL: 103 Triglycerides: 111 Well, I started having mustle weakness side effects of mustle weakness around then and stopped any medication completely. Fast forward to the end of July, when I discovered the Whole30. Since the end of July I have been doing the Whole30, and am very greatful I found out about it! I haven't had my Cholesterol taken since I stopped taking medication (until last week) and I got my results yesterday and am pretty curious. (I stopped the medication since the begining of July by the way, so its been about 5 months or so) HDL 57 LDL: 231 (???) Triglycerides: 102 The "It starts with food book" it says you "generaly" are ok/have low risk of heart disease if your Triglyceride to HDL-C raito is 2 or less. Which well, it is about 1.8. Which is actually better then when I was on the medication. Also says LDL particle size matters, which I asked what that was, and they didn't know what I was talking about. Also that C-reactive Protein is a factor which I inquired about today. But looks like I haven't been tested for that since 2010. So I know there is no definite answer. So I'll ask in this sort of way: Are these numbers "generaly" ok or am I in trouble? Is this a success story? Or is my LDL way too high that the 2 or less Triglyceride to HDL ratio doesn't even matter? (Generally speaking) Any input/opinions are appreciated!
