My lipids are high



Recommended Posts

My lipids are higher now than before surgery. Just got my results. How can I lower them? Any suggestions?

Your triglycerides will probably drop off quickly by being off carbs. Your HDL should increase significantly as you start exercising more. However, the total cholesterol may actually increase while you are in the weight loss stage. It has to do with the fat breaking down and how the liver is handling all that load. Don't worry about it. Once you are in maintenance for a while, it should normalize. Keep exercising to keep your HDL up, which is protective against heart disease.
