I'm thinking that my readings could be better.

Cholesterol: 4.2mmol/L

LDL Cholesterol 2.6mmol/L

HDL Cholesterol 1.2mmol/L

Chol/HDL (Risk Ratio)3.5

Triglycerides 1.0mmol/L[/B]
I am so frustrated I could cry. I just got my blood work done again today and my numbers have gotten worse. How I don't know? I exercise, I ahve not eaten one ounce of sugar, no hydrogenated fats, no processed foods at all! I have only eaten low carb veggies and meat, not even processed meat (well except a few times I have eaten bacon).

Here are my readings this time: And the last ones are from three months ago. Scary that the readings are getting worse instead of better.
Cholesterol: 5.0
LDL 3.2
HDL 1.3
Cho/HDL 3.8
Trig 1.0

I'm at a loss of what to do..............

I have been losing a lot of weight. Could that spike my cholesterol?
