High triglycerides or low HDL cholesterol?

The University of Leeds are conducting a 4 week diet trial aimed at reducing high triglycerides or raising low 'good' HDL cholesterol.

If you have been diagnosed with either of these, and not taking medication to treat it, please contact us.

You will need to be able to travel to the University of Leeds 3 times over the next 6 weeks for morning appointments.
