It may surprise you to know that cholesterol itself isn’t bad.
In fact, cholesterol is just one of the many substances created and used by our bodies to keep us healthy. In this article we have steps to give you a healthy cholesterol profile that your heart and brain will love! You will learn why we do not rely on calculated cholesterol to access your cholesterol profile.
Cholesterol can be a confusing topic, especially when the testing shows numbers explained to the patient that they are at risk. You may or may not be at risk, so this is why the proper type of cholesterol testing is critical to determine a course of action!
There is more to cholesterol than a few values. In this video we go into more detail on cholesterol numbers, size, type and risk factors.
If your numbers are high, what can you do?
1. Exercise Daily
2. Niacin 500mg
3. Fish Oil
4. Hormone Replacement Therapy
5. Reduce Your Unhealthy Weight
Dangers of Statins
(HMG-CoA reductase Inhibitors) are widely used to treat high cholesterol, but did you know that there are over 900 studies on their adverse effects such as:
• Muscle problems
• Cognitive problems
• Peripheral neuropathy
• Elevated blood glucose
• Tendon problems
• Depletion of Q10 which leads to loss of cellular energy and increased free radicals which can damage mitochondrial DNA and as you age the risks go up and for those over 70 benefits have NOT been found to exceed their risks.
•Despite so called “normal” cholesterol levels 95% of individuals on statins continue to have heart attacks.
However, one low cost vitamin called Niacin reduces LDL cholesterol, increases HDL cholesterol and apo-lipoprotein A, decreases triglycerides, hs-CRP, lipoprotein A, and apo-lipoprotein B and combined with a low carbohydrate diet and regular exercise is the most powerful therapy to adjust an undesirable lipid profile!
Cholesterol and hormones
As part of our Comprehensive Lab, a full cholesterol profile is obtained to determine your levels of LDL and HDL, but most importantly we look at the particle size to determine your pattern. We do not rely on calculated cholesterol to access your cholesterol profile.
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for men and women is available at Renue Health.
