LDL's and CPn

Well well. There I am working along and I come across this http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=16466690&itool=iconabstr&query_hl=5&itool=pubmed_docsum

This new paper is talking about how the low density lipoprotien is used by the body to protect itself essentially from endotoxin. This is interesting. I have high cholesterol, if you count 254 as high in your book. Don't know my Ldl's off my head or my triglycerides, but another angle to the heart materials

 One of the first things which changed for me on the abx was that my total cholesterol, especially LDL which had been creeping up over the last couple of years, dropped significantly. My ratio dropped from above average (a concern with family history of heart disease) to low. We have some earlier studies on LDL and endotoxin, but this one refers to it in lower level, chronic conditions. Great find!

On Wheldon/Stratton protocol for Cpn in CFS/FMS since December 2004.


CAP for Cpn 11/04. Dx: 25+yrs CFS & FMS. Currently: 250 aithromycin mwf, doxycycline 100mg BID, restarted Tini pulses; Vit D2000 units, T4 & T3, 6mg Iodoral

     Same here. I checked my lipids several months ago and they were normal. My starting point was 274 at the time of the diagnosis, over 3 years ago.

Cured of multiple sclerosis, stopped the Wheldon's protocol in Nov,2008. Use only LDN.
