CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

  • Cholesterol is a fatty acid
  • Your body will make it if you do not consume it
  • It is that important
  • If you start NSNG, certain numbers may rise (LDLs) but others will drop, and that's a good thing!
  • Driving down cholesterol for no reason is not a good thing
  • Some people find 
  • Nicole recommends these tests for people:
    • lipoprotein test (MNR) [cardioIQ at Quest]
      • tells you particle size and particle number
        • pattern A vs pattern B
          • pattern B = small dense
          • You want pattern A = large and fluffy
    • HSCRP test and LPPLA test
      • tells you if there is inflammation present in your vascular system
      • cholesterol is only bad if it is in the wrong place
        • to get in the wrong place, there needs to be inflammation 
    • Fasting insulin
      • if this is elevated, then you are insulin resistant
      • (doesn't have to do with cholesterol, but is important)
  • Often, doctors cannot correctly read particle panels so make sure your Doc knows what (s)he is talking about
    • Nicole can interpret them!
      • Nicole takes phone calls
    • Westman is a good doctor
