Is coconut oil good for cholesterol ?
I have read much about coconut being good for fighting heart disease but doesn t mention cholesterol specifically. Can they be beneficial or worsen cholesterol problem?
My recent HDL reading was over 200, but my LDL number and triglycerides were in the normal range with a total of 302. should I be concerned?
Hello and welcome to HCM,
Total cholesterol of 302 mg/dl is a high value.
HDL value of 200 mg/dl is quite abnormal in the presence of LDL and trigylcerides within normal range.
You need to get HDL repeated. HDL is good cholesterol.
Value above 35 mg/dl is good. Its upper limit is 60 mg/dl.
Values above this range cannot be explained.
It may be due to some error.
Get repeat test for HDL.
What's a good breakfast for a person who has high cholesterol ?
A low fat diet with no cholesterol and preferably trans-fats--a breakfast with an oatmeal, low fat milk and some fruit would be ideal. Alternatively, brown bread, soya milk and some dry fruits would also do. Apricots are a good dry fruit choice as there is very little fat. The essential aim should be to improve the good cholesterol. Hope you find this information useful. Take care.
