Thanks for u r guidance over cholesterol.... my main question is how can I improve my HDL ..... its very low...... 26. I'm 42 years old rakesh thakar

Thanks for such a good article . I would like to add Flaxseeds[Alasi in hindi] to the above mention list of food to reduce cholesterol. Not many people know about flax seeds. Flax seeds(Alasi in hindi) are also good source of Omega 3 acid and helps to reduce cholesterol . Flax seeds are a rich source of the valuable omega-3 unsaturated fatty acid, alpha linolenic acid. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential in your diet. Like vitamins, they can't be made in your body and must come from foods or supplements. By increasing your omega-3 fatty-acid intake, you will produce a healthier ratio of these prostaglandins (hormone-like substances) in your body. Flax seeds have become more and more popular in recent years, due to their health-protective properties. Most notably, reducing the risk of heart disease, as well as the prevention of some cancers. Flax seeds are a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid. This is the plant-derived type of omega-3 fats, which has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol, as well as triglycerides levels. Flax seeds also contain both insoluble and soluble fiber. Soluble fiber is thought to aid in lowering cholesterol, by preventing the absorption of cholesterol within the body. Flax seeds are a valuable addition to your diet, to help decrease your risk of heart disease. Probably the most important and widely studied benefit of the omega-3 fatty acids is for the cardiovascular system. Lipid profiles, electrical conduction in the heart, platelet function, even blood pressure are optimized by omega-3 fatty acid intake. We should consume it daily . It is number one nutrition food item .Search online for more health benefit details of flax seed. You can buy it from nearby store or online and it is quite cheap as compare to other healthy items like almonds(more healthy and tasty mamra badam(almonds) is more expensive than California badam) and roasted flax seeds better in test than other natural food items which reduce cholesterol like Garlic, Oat,onions etc. Finally , it is up to you decide best suitable combination for your health.


Recent research on Coronary Artery disease [heart disease] indicated the overall cholesterol to be within normal range in close to 60% of the cases. So high cholesterol by itself does not predispose to CAD. Other factors like life style diet and activity level are equally important.

My LDL is 144 and HDL is 30 mg/dl. what are the consequences especially heart Further my SGOT is 169 and SGPT is 106 iu/l and am a sugar patient Kindly provide me the consultancy on the consequences omyhealth
