LDL Cholesterol: “The Bad Cholesterol”

月头花了SGD380 (可以 claim 公司,haha) 到 Singapore Changi Hospital 做 Health Screening,今天下午回去拿报告。拿体检报告,肯定是抱着些许害怕的心情去的。报告结果是,everything looks ok, just that your LDL Cholesterol (so called Bad Cholesterol) is a bit higher (4.0 @_@)
Optimal : <2 .6=".6" p="p">Near Optimal: 2.6 - 3.3
Borderline high: 3.4 - 4.0 (corresponding to even higher rates for developing symptomatic cardiovascular disease events)
High: 4.1 - 4.8
Very High Risk: > 4.9

医生说,高 LDL 是可能因为吃了以下的食物 :
- Red Meat (But red meat is considered to be a member of one of these animal groups. Beef, pork, lamb, or venison. Poultry and fish are not considered red meat.)
- seafood (prawn, squid, crab, etc). Is ok to take fish.
- fried food (fried kuey teow, fried carrot cake)
- fast food
- saturated fat (These fats are derived from animal products such as meat, dairy and eggs. But they are also found in some plant-based sources such as coconut, palm and palm kernel oils. These fats are solid at room temperature. Saturated fats directly raise total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. )
- too much egg yolks (advisable to take only 2 egg yolks/week, is ok to take egg white)

除了鸡蛋(应该有平均5~7粒 鸡蛋/week),我都很少吃 以上医生所列举能造成高 LDL 的食物。惨了,吃太多鸡蛋(蛋黄)了。

医生建议可以在半年或一年后到普通诊所再做 cholesterol 的检查。(前提当然是要减少 egg yolk 的 intake)
