    Can vegetarians have lower HDL levels?

    I am 62 years, male, vegetarian. I am taking s small dose of BP medicine since March

    (my BP was about 140/88 before, now 110/76). My Cholesterol is LDL 125/ HDL 36. My doctor wanted to put me on statins and I found that exaggerated. 

    I eat organic, vegetarian fat free diet, hardly any dairy or eggs. Walk moderately.
