Is 'LCHF' more useful than 'STATIN' to lower LDL????

Plz correct me if I am wrong.....

It is said that 'STATIN' is wonder drug and is helpful for lowering LDL.

However, Total Cholesterol = HDL +LDL+ ( Triglycerides/5)

Now it is also known fact that by cutting carbs your Triglycerides falls like rock.......also by eating healthy fats and by correcting your omega3 ratio your HDL raises.

Now with this dietary modification your lipid profile will change drastically in lowering LDL.

like Total Cholesterol = ↑ HDL + ↓ LDL+ ↓  ( Triglycerides/5)

This will also save from deadly side effects of Statin.

Plz comment

  • One more secret:

    ===================

    When triglyceride is <100 mg/dL, calculated LDL (Friedewald (1972) Formula) is significantly overestimated. 

    There are far better markers for cardiac issues.

    Plain TC numbers andHDL, LDL are useless. 50% of 100,000+ cardiac deaths had normal LDL. So all this LIPIDS Vs CVD/CHD is a scam to sell Statins. Don't trust computed LDL on low TG values. get direct LDL

    :)

  • well it works out almost same.....don't know about TC less than 100 or more than 400.

    But if within limits formula works out almost perfect.

    So guess LCHF more useful to lower LDL.

  • Depends. Mine lowered to 90 and has been there since last few years.

    Plain numbers are useless. Look for ratios and other cardiac markers.

  • Side effects of statins:

    Diabetes 

    Dementia 

    Myalgia 

    Greater risk of various diseases due to cholesterol reduction which is necessary for various hormone production 

  • brother i reduce my  LDL/HDL ratio to 60 % without any statins , the doctors prescribed me , but i refused to take d medicines , the ratio above said was 7.852 at d time of diagnose, now is 3.42 ...with diet only ..u just improve ur diets and include slight exercise in ue regime . gud luck
