I am 38 years old.weight 67 kgs.
My present condition.

My total cholesterol keeps changing between 240 and 300. My hdl level between 41 and upto 70. ldl bwteen 230 and 270. Triglycerides between
90 and 110.
I am pure vegetarian. I have never consumed meat. Non smoker - non drinker.

First time i checked my cholesterol level was when i was 31. I am not under any medication now. INitially i had lipitor and statins which i have stopped way back.

I do excercise daily. losing around 500 cal by cycling.
I am taknig flax capsules, fish oil capsules. I take raw garlic ginger.

Recently i have noticed i have a severe problem of gas formation. I have increased appetite. When i get i feel bloated. and when i dont eat i feel week in arms and legs. specifically left arm. I do experiecne pain betwene chest at times but it subsides when i eat a hevay meal.

Recently I have gone thru stress test 3 times in one month and tread mill test twice. Thre are no blockages which is confirmed by docs. My heart seems ot be totally normal. My blood pressure is 110/80 to 120/85.
I have x rayed my chest. esophagus both came normal.

Doc have not advised me any medication for chloesterol. Since i feel that cholesterol can be controlled by normal/healthy diet.

I sometimes find blood in my stool though not much. it sometimes is mixed with mucus in stool.

I wish to know why this is happening / can anybody help me.

  • What is your main source of protein? That is, which protein supplying food do you eat the most of. Soy could be the culprit, or perhaps wheat. In any case I would look first at a food allergies as a cause.
