Hey guys,
I got my bloodwork done recently and my doc did not call me back as he did not consider anything serious enough but a couple items freaked me out. I know that diet can fix it too so I need your help!
Firstly, my LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) is up in the higher range. I have been eating keto/carnivore mostly so this makes a lot of sense. That said, I’m willing to break this diet if it means lowering that cholesterol.
Secondly, I can’t remember the name of the specific test, but I’m high risk of blood clots. It is unfortunately genetic. I already knew this.
Anyway! I need your help to build a diet (1200-1400 cals) to lower my cholesterol and manage my blood clots. :D

LDL cholesterol itself isn't bad, even though it's called the "bad guy". There are two types of LDL, pattern A and pattern B. Pattern A is the good LDL cholesterol that helps with transporting lipids in the bloodstream, as is the job of LDL, and doesn't harm you. Pattern B is the distorted LDL cholesterol after it comes into contact with excess glucose in the blood, and then sticks to the arterial wall. Doing keto will give you "high LDL" but I can almost guarantee it's pattern A if keto is done correctly.
Unfortunately, no one wants to talk about how blood tests never separate the types of LDL so when it's high people assume you're about to have a heart attack.
I wouldn't worry about it, but if you want to learn more as to why cholesterol has gotten such a bad rep but it's not the issue, Dr. Paul Mason on YouTube is wonderful and breaks it all down.
