First time post; guess I'm just nervous, I'm 41, have a 7 week old first baby...got My numbers back
78 - hdl
This was after a month of eating nothing but tuna and humus per dr. Orders. Lost 8 lbs but my number still high (was 277 a month ago)
I'm bummed, on day 2 of newly prescribed pill, but wondering if I'm a walking heart attack? Have so much to live for now, this caught me off guard, thank you
That is higher than they would like. And I am concerned that all you've eaten is tuna and hummus! Really? If so, one issue is no fiber. You really need some whole wheat and fiber in that diet along with some green vegetables.
Your ratios are fine....stop worrying and enjoy your newborn. Continue to eat healthy, exercise and live your life. Stress is worse for you than anything. Some doctors aren't as knowledgable as they should be about cholesterol. If you're taking statins, you might want to reconsider and go the diet and exercise route first, IMHO. Take care
