The best and natural way to increase HDL is exercise like long distance walking. The other way is take medication like statins. You can ask your doctor and he will evaluate if you need them or not.

I have a friend with slightly low HDL who would like to increase it. He s an avid exerciser (so adding more is likely not going to do it) and also a VERY picky eater (mostly chicken and french fries)... any advice for food to incorporate into a picky eater s diet to increase HDL? We ve assessed that he could try to eat some raw onions on a salad (but won t swtich from iceberg to spinach) and he can tolerate broccoli. I also suggested eating whole grain pasta more often... any other helpful tricks? Thanks! More details: Male, 33, 220 lbs, 6 4 (ish)

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 62-year old healthy female who takes Pravastatin. My cholesterol level was 249 before being put on that drug, and I have no other health issues--not overweight, no hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, etc. Get plenty of exercise, have a good diet of protein and not many carbs or surgar. Triglycerides, etc. are fine, and my total cholesterol has dropped to 150 while on the drug. Recently a routine blood test revealed that my blood glucose level had risen to 104 after being 94 a year ago. Could this be due to the Pravastatin, and is there anything I should do?
