Re: how long do i need to reduce my cholesterol?

It took me around a year, or so, of dieting to get my Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels to healthy levels, without having to use medication. I also went from 180 pounds to 130 pounds.

My Cholesterol levels, in 2003, were:
  • Total: 249
  • LDL: 145
  • HDL: 46
  • Triglyclerides: 286

My latest Cholesterol levels are:
  • Total: 156
  • LDL: 86
  • HDL: 58
  • Triglyclerides: 60
Defeated CHF, A-Fib, HBP, Diabetes, Asthma

⇒ Avoid chemicals;triggers;irritants;toxins
⇒ Taken blood pressure ~31k
⇒ egg, cereal, veggie diet 50% fat;25% carb
⇒ Power walk,Weights,Bike,Steps
