It is pretty much what I have heard from my stroke
team and my PCP and what I have learned online...weight, age, diet
, beta blockers, etc. The problem remains that, according to my research, each of these affects HDL by only a few points...five to ten percent, not 54%...and except for the fact that I am six months older, none of the above factors has changed. The good news is that my HDL appears to be increasing on its own. Eleven days after my stroke it was back up to 35.
