    Oh wait... Nothing has ever impacted it. Not exercise nor diet or any other factors. Not even juicing my brains out ever really affected it much.

    Can't say the same for triglycerides though.

    I 100% agree that lipid profiles are 95% based on genetics. You can help triclycerides with exercise and fish oil. High triglycerides is not a good thing.

    That really sucks CPA!

    I moved my total cholesterol down just a little. Got my HDL up from 35 to 40 with some fish oil and Triglycerides down with cardio. That brought the ratios in a little better. I also use some Red Yeast Rice. In all, it may all be B.S.

    This I find real interesting. Total Cholesterol= HDL+LDL+20% of the total Triglycerides. If Triglycerides are a key factor as DYS mentioned, why is it only accounted for at a 5:1 rate? To me, I bet it was a comprise between two "Experts" on a late Friday afternoon and dinner was getting cold.

    I think I will pick a brand of red yeast rice to try next and just go back to eating my macro targets. I'm over listening to diet advice from professionals that just doesn't work!

    85 percent of people who have heart attacks have "healthy cholesterol levels". Does that make any sense?

    Quick update, doctor 2 told me to take niacin. I've been an established patient of his for years and he agreed that my crap hdl is genetics related and said my TRT protocol isn't doing me any favors. Granted, he also agreed that my hdl/LDL has remained constant despite diet and exercise, so I guess the TRT comment was just a dig at the other doc.

    Educate the 2 doctors who seem to know very little about the dangers of Niacin especially in those who are healthy.....
