Doug Rozar's Experience with
Paleo Diet for Cholesterol

8 years ago

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.

Total cholesterol doesn't mean that much in and off itself. What's really important is the triglycerides over HDL ratio. Did you get your HDL and triglycerides measured?

No, this was one of those company-sponsored wellness programs where they send someone over with a portable cholesterol machine and tested us with finger pricks.

Finger-prick machines may not be as accurate as lab tests where they actually draw from your arm. In any case, you should keep an eye on it, and definitely try to get your HDL and triglycerides checked if you can.
