Hi Dr, My labs came back as 129 for total chol.. GOOD..
however, my LDL is very low. (19) low base is 39 ...
I was on a cycle and went off last 4 weeks... I eat a really well balanced diet.
lots of mac nut oil, natural Peanut butter, and fish and fish oil tabs.
my triglycerides are in check... I know that the steroids made it go down, and now that I am off how can I increase the level of HDL while off and then after I go back on?
cycle was :
500mg test cyp / wk
50 primo EOD
HGH 1-2 iu/ d
I used to have great HDL even while on test.. my ration used to be 8:1....
I do know that my LH and FSH levels are very low.. could this be most of the problem ?

Although your father had a fatty diet, there may also be familial factors leading to higher cholesterol levels with lower HDL levels.
Your HDL may just need more time to get back into normal range than the person without a family history of cardiovascular disease.
I would recheck the cholesterol and HDL cholesterol in 3 momths. If you're not back to baseline, talk with your health care provider.
