What was your sister's HDL level when she began? And what was yours when you began?

My sister's HDL was low but I won't say the exact numbers w/o first asking her if it is ok.

My HDL at it's lowest was mid 30's. I started taking 1 gram of niacin per day and doubled it to 70.

Read the Perfect Health Diet blog about raising HDL http://perfecthealthdiet.com/2011/04/how-to-raise-hdl/

I stopped niacin supplementation and started taking the virgin expeller pressed unrefined coconut oil. I have tried several brands and usually take the one available at whole foods. Dr. Bronner's is the brand IIRC.

I use the cheap louana coconut oil as skin lotion after showering.

I will report my results at my next bloodwork.
