I'm within range on my HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I first started my doctor was concerned I was going to have a heart attack at any time. My HDL was a 31 and my dad had his last heart attack in his mid 20 lvl HDL and my brother had his at a 27. After the first 40 lbs lost mine went up to a 36 and my doctor wasn't happy about it. Then I lost this last 55 lbs and now it's a 47. A 47 DO YOU HEAR ME A 47!!!!! In range is higher than 46. 47 is higher than 46!!!! I feel like screaming it out the world right now!
I watched my dad have multiple heart attacks. It wasn't fair to have to see that. Now I know my kids will never have that memory!
Extra note: I def know to watch my diet and that heart attacks come because of multiple reasons. But genetically heart disease is the biggest killer in my family do to low HDL levels. It started with my great grandfather who died at 29 (age) and my grandfather who died of a massive heart attack at 40(age). Even as a skinny soccer player my brother has had a hard time keeping his up and still ended up having a heart attack. Me being able to get mine this high even with it being low starting at the age of 16 is a huge sigh of relief for me. Sorry if this post made me sound a little ignorant to how other heart attacks happen.
