Testosterone and Cholesterol Facts!
How to Reduce Your Heart Attack Risk!
I'm not a huge fan of the current theory that cholesterol causes heart disease.
It's not strictly about the total number. Many other factors come into play,
Consider this fact....
A recent national study showed that nearly 75 percent of patients hospitalized for a heart attack had cholesterol levels within the recommended guidelines.
So much for the guidelines!
We do know that low testosterone levels dramatically increase your risk of suffering a heart attack.
The following facts will give us a few clues why...
All of these changes are good for your heart.
Here are some things you should do now to reduce your risk of having a heart attack.
Increase HDL Cholesterol
To do this drink a glass or two of red wine per day, exercise, lose weight, avoid transfats, and excessive carb intake.
Beneficial fats also increase HDL levels. Get your fat from cold water fish, and grass fed beef.
Take your HDL and divide it by your Triglycerides, and you'll have a good indication of your heart attack risk.
This number is much more reliable at predicting heart attack than total cholesterol.
The higher the number, the higher the risk.
In other words, you want to have very high HDL, and very low triglycerides.
Reducing triglyceride levels is very simple.
Cut your carb intake to under 100 grams per day, and your triglycerides will fall down into the basement in about 48 hours.
Reduce fasting insulin
Insulin damages the lining of the blood vessels that lead to the heart. Chronically elevated insulin levels will send you to an early grave.
How do you reduce insulin?
By controlling your blood sugar. Once again the most effective way to do this is to reduce your carbohydrate consumption below 100 grams per day.
Exercise will also reduce your insulin and blood sugar levels.
