GPs explanation on bad cholesterol.

"For while my blood pressure was a tiny bit lower, at 130/80, my cholesterol had gone up to 4.3, and this increase was down to a rise in so-called 'bad' LDL cholesterol.

My GP explained that extreme diets essentially shock the body; and in its confused state subtle changes can happen - not all helpful - which might explain why my LDL was slightly up.

She said people's exact reactions will vary, and added that if I keep the weight off, she would expect an improvement in my readings."
