Hi, I am Beginner in CRON Diet. Did I Do Something  Wrong?

Hello everyone, I am on the Cron diet for nearly 1 year. I am also eating healthy for nearly 5 years and sometimes do cron but not regularly, I try a vegan diet before (18 months) but I gave up. I am 25 now. Peoples think I am 18-19 years old. My height is 5.4(162cm) and my weight is 108Ibs(49kg). My general nutrition came from the liver, sardines, broccoli, fruits, and vegetables. I'm not so much strict about them. I can't count my calories but watch my weight. I'm avoiding dairy, sugar, and trans fats. My blood pressure is 100/60. Today I take a blood test. But my total cholesterol is 234. LDL is 144 and HDL is 78. Trigiliseride 58. Vitamin B12 is 886. Nearly all others are in the normal range. Insulin in blood serum is 3. Glucose is 66. Calcium 10.1. HbA1c% 5.2. How can I lower my cholesterol levels? What do you suggest I do ? Sorry, I can't find a way to translate my results into English.

Hi Deniz, 

Welcome to the CR Forums. Your blood work looks quite good except for cholesterol. Barring something unhealthy about your diet or lifestyle that you haven't shared, I'd speculate your high cholesterol may be due to genetics. That appears to be the case for my wife, who is thin, eats healthy (nearly vegan), and exercises daily but still has LDL cholesterol around 130 mg/dL. She has one Apoe4 allele according to 23andMe, making her prone to elevated cholesterol. Does high cholesterol run in your family? 

Amla supplements gave her a modest benefit (see here) so that might be worth a try. Going back to a healthy vegan diet might help too. Otherwise you are probably left with stains or living with high cholesterol as your only two options. 

Good luck!

Thank you so much, Dean,

Yes, my all family members have high cholesterol. It can be genetic. My doctor tells me, try to be more active. I also try to drop a few lbs, eat a more vegan-heavy diet, and make more exercise. If they are don't work I try taking supplements.

My question is do you have any close family members who had heart disease. Grandparents, uncles, aunts first cousins and of course parents and siblings.

What I’m getting at is your ldl concern. If there is no history of Coronary artery disease in your older and deceased relatives I wouldn’t be very concerned. Tachycardia is associated with multiple lifestyle and or cardio issues. So that alone doesn’t tell you much if anythingwrt LDL levels.

The doctor in the hospital which I do a blood test, says your LDL is high. You must drop it. After that, I ask other doctors(profs) which I'm familiar they say nothing to worry about.
