    Default Low carb lowering my cholesterol!!

    July 11, 2012 Blood Test results received today. At my worst my cholesterol was 380, with bad ratios. Doc put me on Lipitor for a few years. Here are my current results, with no Lipitor for 4 years, living a low carb lifestyle. I was in ketosis at the time of this test. I am very pleased with this result!

    Total Cholesterol: 231

    HDL (good cholesterol): 89

    LDL (bad cholesterol): 121

    Cholesterol/HDL ration 2.6 (a ratio of <5 is associated with decreased risk of heart disease)

    LDL/HDL ratio: 1.36 norm is 1.0 to 3.7, the lower the better

    Triglycerides: 104
