HDL cholesterol level too low

I got a lipid blood test done because ive been dealing with illness, My LDL levels are low as they should be but my HDL level was also very low. How can this be? If I look up how to raise my level it says "exercise, stop smoking lose weight" and yet I'm 130lbs 5'10 who never smoked and walks daily and and fighting weight loss

>ideal HDL level >50
>my level 30
>ideal LDL level <100
>my level 71

    Blood tests are a snapshot in time, there are a lot of reasons for any number of measures on a blood test being mildly elevated or lower. Before making any serious changes, ask for a second test in a few weeks to a month. If it’s still off consider intervention. For you, it’s likely you’re missing good fats like olive oil, fish, etc. if you’re still overweight, fix that too. Some resistance training wouldn’t hurt to improve insulin response.

    If you lift and do cardio, you need to eat a fuckton of fatty meat.

    At my last physical, my good cholesterol was above the nornal range and my bad cholesterol was normal

    I eat 0.8g of protein (from meat only) for every pound of lean body mass, that number times 2 for my carbs and then I get the rest of my calories from fat.

    This is the ideal diet for high test and heart health
    At my peak BBing stats I was fucking enormous at 8% bf

    saturated fat raises HDL more than anything else. exercise and red wine also move the needle a bit but at the end of the day its just a single number and shouldnt be too concerning

          Nope that's literally what studies have been saying for years
          >Eating foods that are rich in unsaturated fatty acids (for example, vegetable oils and fatty fish) decreases the amount of LDL-C and triglycerides in the blood and also raises HDL-C.

            >polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) lowers the total∶high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (TC∶HDL-C) ratio, perhaps the best single lipid predictor of CHD risk

              correct
              >but also increases HDL-C
              yeah but increasing hdl along with ldl like saturated fat does = heart disease
              >polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) lowers the total∶high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (TC∶HDL-C) ratio
              they are talking about total cholesterol here, pufas do raise hdl and lower ldl see

                >These findings provide evidence that consuming PUFA in place of SFA reduces CHD events in RCTs. This suggests that rather than trying to lower PUFA consumption, a shift toward greater population PUFA consumption in place of SFA would significantly reduce rates of CHD.

                it doesnt and this conclusion is invalid. studies included failed the authors own exclusion criteria

    there's no such thing as a too low cholesterol, they're bad for you proven by the 90 years of research, anyone claiming that cholesterol is important is a coping ketoschizo. You're doing good OP, if you can get it lower then you'll live longer than the fat mentally ill ketoschizos
