I work on cruise ships as entertainer and I had to have a medical . The needed amount max is 5 points for cholesterol. And I registered 7.5 when I had my medical. Now I have bought cod liver oil tablets and fat metbalisers. And Have Changed my diet and start to go to gym and excercise. Could I drop it down to 5 in a month as I will start work on cruise ships on the 1st of may. ?
I need to loose 2.5 on my Cholesterol ... - Cholesterol Support
It depends on tons of factors, like what you weighed and what you were eating when you posted the 7.5. It's possible, but I suspect it would be a bit much if you have Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH).
I'm surprised they set a limit of 5.0 millimoles/litre.
I'd also check current thinking on cod liver oil and cholesterol - I'm sure I was warned off it like 30 years ago, but omega-3 is liked nowadays.
Eat no sugar whatsoever for the next month!
No sweets, puddings, fizzy drinks, fruit juice, chocolate etc etc.
If you stick to it your HDL will go up, LDL will be large buoyant and your triglycerides will go down.
