Glucosamine Chondroitin - Cholesterol Link?

Dear Dr. Stoll:

I have been thoroughly researching the above possible medical link on the 'net, but still can't find much, even
two years after the most recent posts on your website. Does the medical community know anything more about this possible link, since two years have since lapsed? Like Jeff Bush,
I keep physically active, take Arthro-7 (containing chicken
collagen II), don't eat much red meat, but I do drink 2% reduced-fat milk. Any information on this disturbing link would be greatly appreciated. I recently recieved my routine annual physical exam bloodwork results back and my
total cholesterol is 223, HDL cholesterol is 53, and LDL is about 135. Thanks!!

Cholesterol levels are unrelated to the amount of cholesterol you eat. How much sugar and carbohydrates, especially refined, do you eat?

Kevin, I agree with Deb, but I may add you may try to cut the milk down or out, eat more red meat and take the herb gugulipid with inositol. You can find these 2 products together at some health food stores. Good luck

You might want to qualify your statement:
"Cholesterol levels are unrelated to the amount of cholesterol you eat."

I agree that is true with a person of good health. The healthy body produces just enough cholesterol to keep an optimum amount in the blood stream. When more is ingested, the body produces less. An amazing thing (like all of life). In fact, I hate it when people repeat the mantra, "eggs are bad for you".

On the other hand, there are people for whom the dietary intake of cholesterol scheme does NOT hold, and maybe the guy who posted is one of them. At least this is what I have been led to believe.

Your HDL/Cholesterol ratio is not too low, although, not particularly high, either. What about your Triglyceride/HDL ratio? Read www.mercola.com/1998/may/18/cholesterol_irrelevant_to_heart_disease_risk.htm for proper values (well, according to Dr. Mercola).
Also read www.mercola.com/1998/may/18/blood_risk_factors.htm for more risk factors.

You said you drink 2% reduced-fat milk. Pardon my French, but this milk is f...ed up:

- http://www.realmilk.com/realmilk.html

And you apparently believe that dietary cholesterol and saturated fat are bad for you. Here's food for thought:
