Paleo Diet for Cholesterol

rated 4.0 out of 5 , based on 2 reviews.

Success stories and experiences on how the Paleo Diet has helped with Cholesterol.

8 years ago

I've been on Paleo for about one year now. The differences that it has made for me:

* HDL went from 61 mg/dL (already pretty good) to 120 mg/dL (the best my doctor has ever seen)
(higher is better, ideal is >= 60 mg/dL)

* Triglycerides went from 44 mg/dL to 37 mg/dL
(lower is better, normal is < 150 mg/dL)

After my first lab work-up, my doctor told me: "your total cholesterol is a bit high, but your HDL is great, so don't worry about it."

I don't. :)

My total cholesterol has shot up to 313 now. Should I be concerned? I've been on Paleo for a few months now, and this is the first time I got my cholesterol checked since.
