Re: "High" Cholesterol at 23

While I am not sure about the above citing being someone I would consider and expert, there is some good information. Your response to saturated fat and what is going on inside you is unique to you. I think you will find it hard to get your doctor to run a bunch of high end tests to appease your desire for knowledge. Unless you have all the information you need, you will be gambling as to what is happening in your arteries. My final suggestion is to lower your saturated fat intake significantly for 2-3 months and retest. Be honest about your intake and the results. This is about the only way you will likely find out how you respond to dietary intake changes. Foremost, don't trust the interwebz and its experts with your health. Do your own research, talk to qualified professionals and think critically about choices.

Re: "High" Cholesterol at 23

Ask and spring for a vap profile..

This will look at your LDL and see if you truly have bad cholesterol.
Buoyant - floating and fluffy. Which tends to skew tradional testing towards high
Or you have dense, which the truly bad cholesterol.

Re: "High" Cholesterol at 23

A little over a year ago I discovered I had high cholesterol.

Your best best if you want to avoid statins is probably going to be enduracin (wax matrix niacin) supplementation.

I wrote an article about my journey here:

By the way, you should dissolve your creatine completely in warm water.

Re: "High" Cholesterol at 23

Spoke to a cardiologist today, and he made a comment that high LDL in a fit young person maybe just the simple variable of increased general muscle damage.....

I guess a pending question to answer. How many days did you rest up before your bloodwork was taken ?
