Okay, I am not freaking out over this at all, its more a matter of curiosity.
When I ate very poorly, super high carb, very little fat or meat except junk food, my LDL was overly high, and my HDL "normal".
Now ive been on paleo whole foods, low carb, higher fat (fatty cuts, butter, hard cheese, coconut oil, more meat) for a few months and my LDL is coming back pretty low, and well below so called "risk range" and my HDL has dropped into "risk range". According to the standard line, which I know is questionable, if my HDL was higher, id be "very healthy" lipid wise my doctor said. (She suggested fish oil). 6 months back my doctors were starting to tentitively mention statins cos of my LDL (no I would never, lol)
Now I was under the impression that sat fats raised both of those, not lowered them both. Is this genetic or why would both my LDL and HDL go down on LC paleo?
