LOWER YOUR LDL AND CHOLESTEROL
After reviewing many journals and articles I observe the following ways to lower cholesterol
a) Reduction of LDL to 60 mg/dl (Bad Fats)
An LDL level of less than 100 mg/dL is optimal for CAD prevention,
and a level of 70 mg/dL or less is now recommended for persons with existing heart disease
> 50 mg/dL (≈ 1.3 mmol/L) man or >60 mg/dL (≈ 1.6 mmol/L) in a woman a reduced risk of atherosclerosis.
>75 mg/dL (≈ 2 mmol/L) man or woman is associated with a very low risk of atherosclerosis.
Less than 40 mg/dL (≈ 0.8 mmol/L) in a man <50 mg/dL (≈ 1 mmol/L) in a woman increases the risk.
Even a small elevation of blood pressure in diseased arteries can cause increased mortality.
Diseased arteries are fragile and plaque rupture can occur easily.
THINGS TO DO
Is associated with a 200% increase in the rate of atherosclerosis
Hypertension – Olmesartan medoxomil (angiotensin II receptor antagonist these are preferred)
High Cholesterol or LDL ie Take a Statin – medication to lower LDL and cholesterol preferred is Crestor (Rosuvastatin) take at night time (as cholesterol is synthesized by the body at night-time)
