Last December, Ivan’s triglyceride reading was more than 400, and his bad cholesterol numbers were 250, putting him at high risk for heart disease and stroke.
Ivan made the decision to lead a healthier lifestyle. He started exercising at least three times per week, and changed his diet to eliminate added sugar and extra carbohydrates. Ivan’s hard work resulted in his tri-glyceride reading dropping to 100, and his LDL cholesterol reading dropping to 190. He no longer takes medication for his cholesterol.
