Anyone TTC and Lower Cholesterol???

Postby ttcnbr2usmcbaby » Sat Sep 12, 2009 8:43 am

DH & I are ttc #2 but i found out i have high cholesterol and need to lower it. since i found out i've dropped 13lbs, hopefully i can get in touch with my doc and see what she wants me to do next. in the mean time, i'm working on lowering it and get into a decent shape.

are there any ladies out there doing the same or something similar situation? sorry just feels like i'm alone :cry:
XOXO,
Carolyn

Try adding oat bran to your food...like if you bake, add oat bran to the mix or if you eat oats, add it there too. My mom's cousin had high cholesterol and she refused meds until she could see if she could lower it herself...the doctor laughed at her and said she'd be back in a few weeks and there would be little or no change and he'd have the prescription waiting...it was fairly high to begin with (though I don't know the numbers) and after a few weeks of branning it up, she had dropped her numbers into normal levels! :D It may not be that quick for everyone, but soluble fiber really is a great solution to high cholesterol!

Also, swap regular oil for olive oil!

here's a few links that may help, too.

Hi There,

This will probably sound crazy but it worked for us.
My husband has high cholesterol, triglycerides etc. The doctor gave him the usual talk about lowering fats, it didnt make that much of a difference.
I researched online and found that sugar plays a big role in cholesterol :omg:
Strange huh- sugars and starchy foods play a big role. We bought a home cholesterol monitor and watched as his cholesterol dropped in a matter of weeks.
As long as he lays of the starches he's fine. Weird I know- but anyway thats our story.

If you want the name of the cholesterol monitor (I think it's about $150?+ tests strips) it also monitors glucose, triglycerides (separate strips), I'll get the link for you.
