Electroacupuncture therapy for weight loss reduces serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol levels in obese women



Electroacupuncture therapy for weight loss reduces serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol levels in obese women



American Journal of Chinese Medicine 33(4): 525-533



Our purpose in this study was to investigate the effect of acupuncture therapy on body weight and on levels of the serum total cholesterol, triglyceride, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol in obese women.

After I had a heart attack and two bypass operations, I was put on Lipitor to lower my cholesterol. My cholesterol was never high--about 170-180 mg/dL. But my HDL was always low and triglycerides were somewhat high. Now my total cholesterol is 124 and my HDL has gone up slightly. My triglycerides are way down. My LDL cholesterol has fallen from 110 to 68. Is there any downside to such a low cholesterol level, other than the need to check my liver function tests?. Harvard Heart Letter 9(5): 7-7, 1999
