Friends, My doc has suggested me to take fish oil capsules for increasing my HDL. WIll this have any side effects? Is there any veg supplement (equally beneficial) for this? As i read in google that it might have a fishy after taste/effect. As im a vegetarian im concerned about this. I shall be taking nuts and other stuff. Just curious to know if anyone could raise their HDL levels naturally, if so, please share your tips. What veggies can i include in my daily routine. Losing weight would increase HDL but im not overweight and i exercise regularly. So this option is not for me. I also have a concern if eating oats will help me in increasing HDL. Any other tips welcome.
