The Skinny on Cholesterol… and How to Fix It – Part 3 (Cholesterol’s shady past)

Cholesterol’s Shady Past

Up until 2013, Medical Doctors were trained to keep an eye on risk of heart disease by monitoring cholesterol levels. The instruction was straightforward: keep total cholesterol below a certain number to be safe. At first, it was below 6.2mmol/L, then 5.2mmol/L. Doctors would use lifestyle or pharmaceutical interventions and thought it was all the same to the body.

The Skinny on Cholesterol…and How to Fix It – part 2

This is part 2 of a 3-part series on cholesterol: how to understand your levels, and more importantly, how to fix them if they’re troublesome. Part 1 introduced some lifestyle and diet modifications that are helpful for managing high levels. Part 3 sheds some light on cholesterol’s shady past. 

But some people feel that changing your diet can be tough.

Target Your Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a necessary form of fat found in the blood. They’re required as an energy storage and transport molecule, but can lead to cardiovascular problems if they are in excess. This means anything over the normal range of 0-1.70 mmol/L can be damaging your heart and blood vessels, leading to increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
