I have very low HDL levels which seems to be pretty common for those of us with an APOE 4 allele. My last HDL reading was 43 which was actually a high point for me which I am attributing to running for 30 mins a couple times a week and regular consumption of olive oil due to the Dr. Gundry protocol. My Trigs are also a bit on the high side at 150. I am doing time restricted eating (20 hour fast/ 4 hour feeding window) and have really cut back on carbs to see if I can get the trigs below 100.
My question is whether anyone has used fibrates and if so can you give a general idea of what impact they had on HDL and Trigs? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
