What Is Your Cholesterol?

Yep it did, well it included me watching what I ate as well, just need to discipline yourself as well as to what you do or don't eat and I found out that the two now work really well! I know others who are on 20-30 a day so im happy enough with my results so far!

Just keep an eye on it as they recommend anything from 5 and below is a safe area to be in.

I'd say mine is about 20.

I never found the cholesterol tent at the ploughing championship.

I've no issue with weight Frodo, far from it. I've been snacking on crisps during the day in college and that's probably what did it.
I can lower it gradually by not snacking but I wanted a faster return.

I've never had a cholesterol test. Will I die soon? (I know I'll die eventually).

Cheers Horatio.
I use seven seas 1000mg omega 3 capsules but wanted to get plant sterols without having to spend a fortune on those drinks and margarine's etc..

So according to this study the type of cholesterol which is responsible for aortic valve disease is genetic and people's levels aren't generally tested. My Granny was basically right when she said cholesterol was invented to sell Lipitor and margarine!! What a con.

Genetic Study Identifies Strong Links To Aortic Valve Disease


A genetic component is believed to play an important role in valvular heart disease, but the specific genes involved have not been identified. Now an interntional group of researchers has identified genetic variations that increase the risk for valvular calcification.

In a paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine, members of the Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genome Epidemiology (CHARGE) consortium report on their search for genes associated with aortic valve calcification and mitral annular calcification in several of study cohorts. They found one SNP, in a gene previously shown to be associated with lipoprotein(a) levels and the risk of coronary artery disease, to be significantly associated with a doubling of the risk for aortic-valve calcification. This finding was replicated in additional cohorts.

Previous studies that linked Lp(a) with aortic valve disease were unable to sort out whether Lp(a) “was a cause or simply a marker of disease,” the authors write. The new findings, they claim, “provide evidence for a causal relationship between Lp(a) and calcific aortic-valve disease and strongly implicate genetic variation at the LPA locus in the pathogenesis of the disease.”

Although the researchers focused on aortic calcification as a marker for clinical aortic disease, they found that variations in the LPA genotype were associated with aortic stenosis and aortic-valve replacement. “Our results suggest that lifelong elevations in Lp(a) levels lead to a markedly increased prevalence of aortic-valve calcification in adulthood and implicate Lp(a) in the development of aortic-valve disease.”

The group also identified two SNPs associated with mitral annular calcification, but this finding could not be consistently replicated.

The researchers noted that additional studies will be required “to evaluate whether lowering Lp(a) levels will reduce the incidence or progression of aortic-valve disease.”

“No medications tested to date have shown an ability to prevent or even slow progression of aortic stenosis, and treatments are limited beyond the major step of replacing the aortic valve,” said study co-author Christopher O’Donnell, senior director for genome research at the NHLBI, in a press release from the NHLBI. “By identifying for the first time a common genetic link to aortic stenosis, we might be able to open up new therapeutic options.”

I should probably get my cholesterol checked at some stage. I never worried about it before cos most of my adult life I was a vegan or vegetarian.
