Hi guys, I am super confused.
I started keto a month ago, with a weight of 61.5 kg. I lost 3 kg so far and I am finding easier to eat less in the evening (a yogurt or 2 slices of cheese) and eat in the morning after 12-14 hrs of fasting.
So far so good, but I am concerned about cholesterol.
On my previous blood test (Dic 2017) the values were total cholesterol: 245, LDL:154, HDL: 76, triglycerides: 69.
Now I had another one (Oct 2018) with the following values: total cholesterol: 270, LDL:171, HDL: 87, triglycerides: 59.
Should I worry? The values went up, but I am not sure if it was due to keto, since I just started and the previous test was on Dec last year.
My doc called me today saying that she wanted to put me on statins. I said no.
Please send me you input. Thanks!
