I’m writing to request your feedback about a case related to LDL levels. I’m a 33 years old male who is generally in a fairly good health record. I’ve done a blood test last Saturday and the score of my LDL was 150 which I was told is considered borderline high. I’ve read a bit about what causes the LDL levels to increase and found out that the main ones are obesity, having food with saturated fat and lack of exercising, so since I monitor carefully the type of food have, exercise 4-5 times a week, and my weight is 67KG only (height is 171) I was a little bit surprised with the results and decided to have the test again as during the day before the one I had my first test I had couple of drinks, donuts and burgers so thought that would have also contributed to the high LDL score I got.
I had the test again today and the score was 170! So my question is, is it normal for LDL to increase by this much within 4 days? Are there any precautions that i should consider? What other factors can contribute to the increase of LDL?
I would appreciate your feedback and advices since im traveling tomorrow to attend a friend wedding and not expecting to have a healthy lifestyle during the next 10 days.
Many thanks in advance.
