DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE:High trigs, low HDL, 3-4 bottles of wine a week? Fatty liver disease. See a doctor, PRONTO. You may be on the path to liver cirrhosis.
When I got an insurance screen about two months ago and I had LDL of 299, but a still normal CHOL/LDL ratio. I eat a generally healthy diet with lots of protein and fruit/veggies and a very little dairy/processed foods. I do, however, eat... (more)
I am helping coordinate a health testing event at which we're doing free cholesterol measurements for visitors. The problem is, those cholesterol test strips are *expensive*. We can probably afford to measure HDL, LDL, *or* total cholesterol,... (more)
Back in March of 2011, I got a lipid panel run after eating a diet loaded with butter and cream and at or less than 100g of carbs per day for 6 months or so. Pretty standard "paleo/primal" or "perfect health" diet, right? My lipids were as... (more)

For the last ten years, I've had HDL ranging between 15 and 40 mg/dl, but usually averaging around 30-32 mg/dl. The Paleo diet has done nothing to increase it including low carb and regular carb options. Doctors have told me it's likely genetic.... (more)
Up until last June, I was severely obese - 73 inches, 295 pounds, BMI of 39. In May, I read Gary Taubes' books. I gave myself a glucose-tolerance test, and peaked at 177 an hour after eating 70 grams of bread, easily high enough to indicate... (more)

When are High HDL and low triglycerides indicative of problems on a Paleo/WAPF style diet? I recently asked my doctor for a lipid profile. I started a more WAPF way of eating just around the time of my last lipid profile (life insurance... (more)

Alcohol, green tea, niacin, dark chocolate and several other substances increase HDL. Google "How to Triple Your HDL" by Jonathan Carey and feel free to contact him. This was one of the more interesting poster presentations at AHS'11.
