Question Shellfish & Cholesterol

I know that Shellfish such as Clams are low in fat but high in cholesterol. Does that automatically mean that if I eat them often my bad cholesterol will go up? I have had high cholesterol in the past and need to lower it but I love those clams.

thanks.

Yes, it does. You should stay away from shellfish.

Re: Shellfish & Cholesterol

eating cholesterol forces your body to do one thing....make less of it.

Re: Shellfish & Cholesterol

It depends. Some people's blood cholesterol is affected by dietary cholesterol, but other people's blood cholesterol is not significantly affected by dietary cholesterol.
