Follow LCHF diet

Consume oats porridge with milk. The established property of their cholesterol-lowering effects has led to acceptance of oats as a health food.

Take Fish liver oil capsules. High doses of omega-3s can reduce levels of triglycerides.


I adore porridge for breakfast. Before going to work. No spikes with bg & keeps me full for hours.

Hello Narayan. By taking supplements alone will not help you much. Overall diet have to be good to achieve good results. Avoid oily food like samosa kachori Puri pakode etc. Avoid maida. Avoid sugary food like sweets. Start walking in morning or evening or both time according to your schedule. Try to eat light in dinner. And have walk after 30/ 40 Min of dinner. You will see the difference. Good luck.

If you want good results, buy arjun bark from any ayurvedic store. Every day night take approx small piece of 2" x1" wash it and immerse in half glass water. In morning add some more water and boil for 5 minutes ( do not remove arjun bark ). Strain the water and take the strained water. You will see very good result in 30 days. Continue for 3 months. Then repeat after gap of every 3 months.

Pl tell us how does it work. Any documentary evidence?

take tablet rosuvastatine 20mg at night time daily for 3 months and then check.

You have started some remedies - try for 30 days and check again

BEST REMEDY -- I have used myself successfully.

make one cup juice of - Garlic, Lemon, Ginger and add all together - add one cup apple cider vinegar and water - Total 5 cups-- boil at medium heat in a large pot- until liquid becomes 4 cups -- add one cup honey- mix thoroughly- let it cool down - fill in bottle and refrigerate. Then every morning- on empty stomach - take one spoon -- nothing to eat

or drink for 30 minutes - complete the liquid and test again-- Re[eat every six months -- make sure to have tested -- do NOT go too low.

TOTAL Cholesterol alone is not bad--up to 400

IT is LDL is bad -- should be below 100 and below 70 for diabetics


Have you talked to the doctor about the issue? When was your last appointment? Did you get a list of foods you can and can’t eat?

If you are hypothyroid you will have high cholesterol, it is not a big deal. Look it up, the conditions are linked. You need cholesterol anyhow, the science is changing. Don’t panic. My husband has low chol and still has artery plaques. The doctors have no answers.

Start having Virgin coconut oil, two spoons everyday one in the morning and one in the evening. This has hugely helped me reduce my cholesterol levels, specially HDL has increased from 45 to 60 and triglycerides have become normal. Take it for a month see the results and then continue. Also there is no way you will be able to have healthy lipid profile if you keep taking carbs.
