People with high cholesterol generally live longer. If you must worry about your cholesterol jeep your Trig's low and your HDL high and forget the rest.

Thank you, very interesting article.
Any suggestions how to raise HDL?
There is an association between low HDL and cardiovascular disease because they have a common cause, not because one causes the other. That cause is a diet high in sugar and carbohydrate
Lowering carbohydrate intake very effectively raises HDL and lowers triglyceride.The reason more people do not do this is the erroneous fear of cholesterol. A low carbohydrate diet can increase the total cholesterol level.
That seems to ignore people like me who have low HDL even on low carb diets, probably for genetic reasons same as the high HDL.
I wish people would just say they don't know rather than posting irrelevancies or implied accusations that I eat a load of sugars.
Triglycerides is, in my opinion, out of all of the lipids tested in the basic standard "Cholesterol" profile, the most important.
I'd, therefore, be particularly wondering where, in the lab ref. range, is someone's Triglyceride result? Is their Triglycerides at the upper end of the lab ref. range or at the lower end of the lab ref. range? 🤔
Personally, I'm about two-thirds of the way up the Trig ref range and just off the bottom of the HDL ref range and those have almost never moved, through diet, exercise or medication changes. The few times they have moved, it's been by less than 0.1mmol/l and then returned to previous so I suspect it was measurement entropy.
I saw that in an older post you wrote that you'd tried Low Carb, but only for a short time.
These things take time, and maybe doing Low Carb for a few/several months would help lower your Triglycerides.
As far as I know, HDL requires good natural fats and animal fats in order to rise.
I suggest clicking on links that I provided and watching those talks and presentations.
