    Red Rice Yeast Results

    These are my Red Rice Results:

    September on 1,500 Niacin

    TC 242
    LDL 162
    HDL 53
    VLDL 27

    Trig 136

    Ratio TC/HDL = 4.6

    I have high sugar so I ditched the niacin and replaced
    this with 1200 Red Rice Yeast

    TC 210
    LDL 150
    HDL 44
    VLDL 16
    Trig 79

    Ratio TC/HDL = 4.8

    It is sort of interesting in that my ratio is worse, but the doctor said it was good in looking at the lowered Total Cholesterol. I am not positive that they can perform the long division. The HDL at 44 is exactly correct because that is exactly where it stays without the niacin.

    Before any supplements, it was I think -

    TC = 260
    HDL = 43
    LDL = 180

    Trig = 185

    He is pushing statins. I think I am going to wait a while on these - 40 years or so.

    Niacin is one of the best medicine at rising the HDL, so it is not surprising to see the HDL lower after you stopped.

    Red yeast rice is a statin so you should still get your liver function checked regularly.
