    I want to pose this question to Drs. Naiman and Eenfeldt. Dr. Eenfeldt because of his sound judegement, and Dr. Naiman with whom I'm not familiar, but I see he has a "statin" related post on his site.

    I was injured by statins and have recovered about 60%. Certainly, not more and it affected my ability to work.

    My total cholesterol has gone up to 14 since Spring (about when I began low carb) my ldl to 11~, my triglycerides below 1 and hdl to over 2.

    I have over 20 yrs of measuring gone around between 9 and 14. I have no idea before that. I have no cardiovascular disease and am overweight but no anything systemic to worry about. Normal to low bp.

    My doctor is freaking out. Is there a way to lower it say by more fasting, or less sat fat while staying on low carb?

    Part of my comment is missing:

    By lower I mean possibly to 9, but certainly not possible to be lower. This doctor is new, as I have changed doctors three times in a decade always being treated badly when I won't take statins or cholesterol lowering. I have even heard, regarding other problems something like ~there's no point doing X investigation because you won't take what I say anyway. And they are right: I won't take untested highly marketed drugs, not Z or LMNOP. Or possibly anything. But they cannot envision there are options beyond drugs, even though that is what I need help with for physical problems.

    Thanks Peter. If a question affects several, including those reading who are on the fence about membership, it might be best to answer online. This question of high cholesterol and lowering is very topical here.

    I see part of my question has been answered by today's article.

    However.

    I've been 16/8 fasting since I started dedicated low-carb mid-July but have not lost weight for about a month. I see Dr. Noakes suggests some women *may have to lower fat intake* to be successful with low-carb. I'll try that. It may also lower my LDL which I'm not sure is anything to be concerned about. That is what I primarily wanted to know.
