Raising HDL cholesterol
Hubby had a physical last week and all his labs were squeeky clean, except his HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) which was too low. However, his triglycerides, LDL, and total cholesterol are all excellent (well within the ideal range). He takes no medications, briskly walks about 4 miles most days of the week, and is doing a pretty good job of eating healthy. He eats oat bran on his cereal almost every day. He is working on losing 10 pounds to reach his ideal weight. BP is slightly high (140/?) but he hates going to the doctor so he was nervous.
Does anyone know any tried and true dietary measures that are successful in raising HDL?
