Great answers, I agree with most of them (except the smoking crack - I've never even tried pot). So you have high cholesterol? I managed to get mine down from 7.8 to 5.5 by diet alone - by cutting out most fat, eating oats for breakfast every morning, and teeny pieces of Green and Black's dark choc so I wouldn't feel deprived.

MsCellania said...

Nah, cholesterol is low. But split out my triglycerides and you have levels near 4000. Yes Four THOUSAND.

My total risk is still just above 3, which is amazing when you consider that the fat in my blood stream would stop a trotting horse in its tracks. My foe? Car Bo Hy Drates. And even corn-fed beef, chicken, etc is too much carbo-fed protein for my finicky system to take. I guess my ancestors ate wild game and grazed on berries on the wilde steppes of yore. Gypsies, the lot of them. (Irish and Finn)

I do not fear high cholesterol, as a total measure. But easy for me to say; mine is low.

And I love your Daily Green and Black's. A day without choc is - well, it's NOT a day!

PJ said...

Are you taking anything for it? My sister's was over 800 on medication then they switch her to vitoran (sp)and her triglycerides are down to 200.

MsCellania said...

I occasionally take Gemfibrozil a few weeks in a row. All this stuff is deadly for women.

Basically, your sister and I should be doing the Ron Rosedale diet - 3 weeks of ZERO carbs (and no meat that is corn fed either) and then gradually adding them back. We have to switch from sugar burners to fat burners. My dad just did it at 78, and his levels are N O R M A L. Blood sugar, TGs, everything. BP is now 100/60 (he was medicated), fasting sugar is below 90, TGs are under 135.

Amazing. He was on 3, soon to be 5 prescriptions. He said NO MORE! and he's normalized himself, with just diet, exercise and some supplements.
