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.
I recently had blood work done and it seems like the ratios are alright, but the overall cholesterol is a little high and I noticed that the HDL is high as well. Does cardio exercise tend to increase HDL levels? Total: 209 Triglyceride: 89 HDL:... (more)

Wouldn't hurt to dial back the workouts a little bit, take vitamins, and make sure you don't have fat malabsorption. It very well could be the medication. make sure you consult your physician about your concern with that.

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)

Both glucose and fat rely on similar enzyme systems towards the end of ATP conversion, but the conversion of glucose starts with glycolysis, fat via beta-oxidation. Lactic acid is a by-product of glycolysis and is a preferred fuel source for... (more)
This is my first post even though I search this site all of the time. I've been doing Paleo religiously for the last 3 months due to a fairly poor blood test back in May (it's what triggered my search for a new diet). The amount of real sugar I... (more)
Don't monoglycerides get formed into triglycerides once again to be taken up by chylomicrons? I know monolaurin is antimicrobial but does it even get a chance to perform this action?
Monolaurin DESTRUCT the outer lipid skin of virus, patogenoeous microbacterial. Thats why MONOLAURIN as antimicrobial alternative for battle of immune bacteral to antibiotics.
I have been wondering how long it takes to drop the cholesteral levels and trigs down to what I'm seeing reported here by others. Mine are through the roof, I would love to go in for a check up and shock my doctors, who keep wanting to put me on... (more)

I have gotten into the habit of eating blueberries on the same plate as my meat and vegetables, rather than eating them separately as a dessert. What I want to know is, are there any benefits to raising blood-glucose before eating fats, while... (more)
First of all, I'm assuming the hypothesis that ApoE4 carriers (one or two alleles) face the problem of high LDL Cholesterol and TC, probably due to a diet high in saturated fat. If that holds true, and according to various blogs (Dr. Davis, Paul... (more)
