What is the best way to lower LDL cholesterol, and will this in effect lower the LP-IR score?
Deans Asked: What is the best way to lower LDL cholesterol, and will this in effect lower the LP-IR score?
I had a physical for the first time since childhood.I am an overweight, but not sedentary 35 year old.All of my test results from the physical were really good except my cholesterol.My LDL-C was 118 and my LP-IR score was 64.My HDL-C was a good 52. Total cholesterol being 200. I want to reduce the LDL-C and LP-IR.I recognize that both diet and exercise will play a role in this, but which of the two is most effective?Like I said, I am not sedentary, but have not had much aerobic activity in some time.
Exercise plays a larger role, then diet. Research is pointing more and more to the genetic links in high cholesterol then any other cause.
