Re: Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) - The Anti-Fat Vitamin?

I am sorry, very poor choice of words on my part. I meant that the quality of my numbers has increased, not necessarily the numerical value. Sorry, sorry. I don't worry about LDL but it has not gone up, it has lowered a little bit. Triglycerides have dropped 30% on last check. HDL has risen by 10% o...

Re: Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) - The Anti-Fat Vitamin?

I began a low carb diet Feb 2017 after my heart attack.. At the time, I started "South Beach" at the advice of my Dr. This is characterized by "leaner" meats and more "processed" type foods. The more research I did on diet, I realized that I more "whole foods"...

Re: Heart Attack and 3 Stents Update

Per First question, was the following a typo? Did you mean a blood sugar type drug? Why are you concerned that vitamin B5 may have an interaction with blood thinning? (This is usually an erroneous concern with both vitamin C and vitamin E) That is not a typo. I really didn't/don't know. When I had m...

Re: Heart Attack and 3 Stents Update

My heart condition is directly related to Vitamin C deficiency and that is in fact partially caused by diet. I used to have a problem losing weight - I have dieted for >20 years with no luck until now. I want anyone else interested to know how: I agree, some people can restrict their calories and lo...

Re: Just had heart attack and 3 stents

I believe he is trying the best he can with what he knows but this site is just from a totally different angle. Thank you very much to you a...

Re: Just had heart attack and 3 stents

Why are you scared of red meat? Because I have heard/been told for years "eat cholesterol, get cholesterol blockages." My Dr is still telling me that. I am new to all of this and am trying learn. It is very confusing because there are conflicts between who you ask. You do realize that ing...
