I realise that this isn't a new topic, a forum search brought up 591 messages...

My reason for starting this thread is to ask whether a change in diet brought down a high cholesterol reading for you?

I've just been on the 'phone to my mum who says that a year of eating the 'right' foods made no difference at all to her to her results.

Mine is high (as you might have guessed) and was just interested.

Thanks,

Ed

It often makes a difference but often not enough.

I use both diet and statins. The diet means I need less statins.

Now in my early 50's i've finally given in and accepted my Dr's advice
and persuasion from my elderly mother
to go on statins.

Likewise, i grudgedly capitulated to taking blood pressure tablets
at the start of this year..

Dr seems to have a convincing argument that i'm geneticaly predisposed
to high cholesterol levels despite how hard I control my diet,
and that statins should show a significiantly higher drop in cholestorol levels
than any dietary control efforts alone.

In a months time i should get results on the effectiveness of this first 2 month
course of tablets;
and so far no sign of adverse side effects.

Anyway, I'm resigned to staying on these tablets for the rest of my life....

I was a Fat-Knacker until I was put on a low-fat (for that, read virtually no-fat diet due to gall bladder/pancreas problems and lost about 90 lbs in weight . Result - even though I've put 18 - 19 lbs back on (no tutting, doctor's orders!) my cholesterol was 2.2 at my last check-up.

A buddy of mine in good shape was told... so he made an appointment to have it checked again in 30 days. He ate NONE, except saltwater fish. Same level. Decided that was where it was supposed to be.

He told the doc his gran'mudder was 96 and ate things like a big greasy steak with fried onions, and baked spuds drenched in butter and deep fried baloney with fried eggs every day so he was worried she might not live much longer but he figured he had some more years left.

hi

Like you ( and millions of others) I have high cholesterol - like in double figures. When my doc found that I was high he put me on statins straight away. Over the years I have had both the doses and the type of statin changed and generally they have managed to keep my cholesterol in check.

My doc said that as my initial reading was so high he thought it might be a genetic thing so I told my sister who when she was tested was also very high. But her doctor - a woman - put her on a very strict diet for about a year.

She found that it had no effect whatso-ever on her cholesterol, in fact it rose slightly.

But I guess that diets do work for the majority of cases = that's why the medics try you out first on them.

I hope this helps.

cheers

I cut out butter, cheese, eggs and meat. Pretty soon I added occasional meat back I increased "good" fats like fish and the oils they say are good.   
First effect was that nearly 20 kg almost melted off (I hate to think how close to literally) in the first year and a half, and none of that weight has come back with the third year now beginningI fluctuate within limits that haven't moved since I started fluctuating instead of just losing).
From being high, my good cholesterol is almost down to where it needs to be, and from being low, my good cholesterol is I think OK, but I'm due for a check soon.

The way I keep from going nuts (can't be ridiculous, after all) is

1) participating in family events like Thanksgiving with moderation rather than avoidance;
2) If I'm really craving something, occasionally I'll make it through the week by promising myself something on the weekend; then if I still crave it I have it, but only one thing like a slice of toast with a little butter; and
3)When they draw blood for the tests, I eat almost whatever I want (like once a hot dog, and once a cheeseburger and *ooh* was it good) until the meeting with the doctor for the results. That way I have re-set my crave-ometer to 0 right when I'm getting a big feather in my cap for doing so well with diet alone, and am all ready to get back on it seriously. Think I'll have buffalo wings this time...

My cholesterol was up to 5.8 in April last year, so I was referred to the dietician. I'd been eating a fairly low cholesterol diet for years and didn't want to go on statins, so I tried Benecol/ Flora yogurt drinks. Back down to 4.7 in January 2010.

If you want to bring your cholesterol down, don't eat dairy or meat products (including fish).
Also, avoid processed foods. If you can, avoid cooked foods. And get plenty of exercise.
10 minutes of brisk walking per day would help.

Sure there are those who live a long time who abuse their bodies. But what about the quality of their life and health?

Those little drinks apparently have some effect. The Tesco own-brand ones are a hell of a lot cheaper than rip-offs like Benecol. I hear that avoiding cholesterol in food is not the point - it's your overall saturated fat intake that has far more bearing on cholesterol level. Also, it's the balance between the good and bad cholesterol that's more important than overall level. I shall continue with my carnivorous and cheese-eating habits but I shall always eat my greens and go for a long walk every day. And have a glass or three of vin rouge, of course. This has been scientifically proven to keep me happy.

The vin rouge cure is not necessarily scientific, Steve. There is a lot of debate about that.
The HDL and LDL ratio is important but it will not improve with dairy and meat.

It is really important to read up on insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome and to get your insulin levels checked. Excess carbohydrates can be more of a problem than the fats...there is a lot of misinformation out there, some really bad research and a whole lot of people repeating myths..so do some research. People who have looked for studies they assumed were there to prove all this cholesterol / heart stuff have not found the research. Maybe some exists now.

I agree with mg. There is much misinformation. There are also logical choices.
If you eat a high percentage of meat and dairy you are going to have high cholesterol and unbalanced HDL and LDL levels. If you don't exercise sensibly, you are going to have problems too.

That is just not true that you WILL have high cholesterol and unbalanced HDL and LDL. I have not been checked lately but my ratings were in the really good levels...although I do have insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome and can not shake excess weight..it is possible that by eating less, and I am eating only enough to get to work and back..I could lose weight, but I can guarantee you that I would not produce enough energy to work and ..anyway, lots of people can be in fine fettle eating lots of meat and dairy. It depends on who your ancestors are, what they adapted to, c0-evolved with. What is good for a Japanese person probably won't be good for a Swiss person. And we have so much mixed ancestry it is hard to usually say what our metabolism likely is so we have to go by trial and error.

Anyway, the major problems it seems are (1) refined and even nonrefined carbs..grinding is a problem. Starches especially bad for some people as ancestors did not evolve to eat many grains, especially ground up and refined. (2) Trans fats -- artificially altered oils and fats. The research gets really mixed up here because they combined really bad artificial fats with fats that are actually quite good for many people..like coconut oil. So some people do just fine with dairy, lard etc...if they evolved for it. I would not advocate introducing this to a healthy population that has lived on fish and fruit for example. (3) Corn syrup products seem to be quite bad.

So I would assume that it would be adviseable to never eat trans fats, to experiment with animal and dairy if your ancestors did fine with it, and to not eat white flour or any flour products for starters. This is not a theoretical process. You can measure your weight, your blood fat levels, your blood sugar and just how you feel and see if one way or another way of eating is right for your metabolism. Look at what your ancesters did well on..then get up at 5 in the morning and milk 40 cows like they did...mg

I have to agree with Sooz - it all depends on your genetic disposition. I eat a very low-fat diet and I avoid animal fats, dairy products etc. to a great degree. In my case my cholesterol is very low - overal level was 2.2 at my last check. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones who can control it by diet, however I have friends and family whose diets are very healthy and low-fat, but they are unable to lower their cholesterol to what is considered to be a satisfactory level.

I think the first step in cholesterol control has to be dietary, if that proves not to work (like in Sooz's case) then maybe Statins are the way to go. At the moment they're unnecessary for me.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/why-cholesterol-may-not-b_b_290687.html

Read up on metabolic typing..not blood typing..diets. Basically he says (and I think he is referring to people of Northern European extraction) there are four types of metabolisms: one does great with a vegetarian diet. One does great with what is consider a pretty balanced diet by nortamericano standards..a balance of fruits, protein, grains, vegetables, pretty low-fat. Those people get social reinforcement. Then there is another group that requires more fat and more protein and fewer carbs. They get scolded and admonished but not villified. Then there is a fourth group that requires stronger proteins -- beef instead of chicken. A fair amount of animal fats. Low grains or perhaps no grains for some or for other after body has been damaged by other food plans. Those people are not treated kindly by society. They are the ones who become diabetics often if they do not eat what nature wants them to eat. And diabetes is obviously a function of carbohydrate metabolism. Why are people told to eat a huge amount of carbs once diagnosed? It makes no sense. mg

And some poeple can eat a lot of full fat dairy and lose weight and be quite healthy. It is all dependent on the metabolism of the person, and has a lot to do with their ancestry. Can a person of full Swiss ancestry probably not do pretty well with dairy? Danish? Now if your ancestors thrived on fish and rice, don't eat dairy. And read up on palm oil..it has some health benefits which I am not sure of..very high in some vitamin. But coconut oil is very very good for people and has a bad rap.

Get your insulin levels checked everyone, especially if you are overweight. Do not believe anyone who says that type 2 diabetics don't make enough insulin. This is malpractice talking because it is a verifiable, testable measure. Many make way too much and we need to know whether we do or don't. Mine was 5 times as high as it should be. Insulin is a fat storing hormone. If you are overweight, you are probably in a process leading up to diabetes. Check it out. You can have very good blood sugar levels but very high insulin levels. Means your body is working very hard to control things and probably sooner or later it will not be able to. Hence measurable blood sugar problems. mg

They're not - that's to say they're not here in the UK.

They're told to eat a balanced diet which includes, but is not dominated by carbohydrate. A rough rule of thumb is to divide the plate into thirds - one-third carbohydrate, one fruit and vegetables, the remaining third divided equally into non-dairy protein, and milk and dairy foods, and with a very small proportion of high-fat/sugar-containing foods.
