Woo hoo!
 
I had to join to post about this. I had blood work last year that was lousy. I was not following LC at the time. Here are my numbers:
Total: 247
LDL:160
HDL:63
Tri:120

Dr put me on a statin which I did not tolerate. Had horrible leg pain and muscle weakness. We tried two others with same result so I gave up on chol. meds altogether.

Started low carb in Jan and have lost 18 lbs. Have been feeling great. BP is wonderful, but was waiting for the blood work. It came back today.

total: 226
LDL: 145
HDL:66
Tri: 77

Huge improvement! LDL is DOWN on LC. The only thing I do for my chol is take flaxseed oil in am.

So excited and best news is they are off my case about meds now!

:yahoo: on the weight loss!


are you doing strict low carb without many carbs?

Yup. I try to stay at about 20 per day. True carbs, not net.
