HDL is low and Dr suggested increasing exercise, i.e. riding distances to see if that will have a positive effect on HDL.
It's just diet and exercise that can raise this. He said most over 50 were in the 45 to 55 range when they had cholestrol under control. I favor non-statin approach, so the question is
How much to increase riding?
Currently only about 40 miles a week. Wondering if should set goal to 80 or 120, what. Anyone have any experience with riding distance and HDL level changes?
