That's awesome and something I really need to have checked out. Was it all meds or did the biking help out also? (obviously it did for the weight loss)

The meds are all jsut over the counter,they deffiantly helped with the HDL and LDL. But diet and excersise were deffiantly the best thing.

Wish my triclycerides were 100. I am currently on Tricor with tris of 434. Weigh in at 225lbs. Even when I was at the gym every day and at 187lbs, my cholesterol was bad. Damn genetics.

Congrats on the numbers!
