I guess this is a question for the doctors here, but I’m NOT asking for medical advice. Have there been any studies which measure how long it takes for dietary changes to affect cholesterol levels? I can’t seem to find the right search terms, or maybe there are no studies.
The question really is, how long until you reach a new steady state, I guess. I imagine it doesn’t take too long to make some change. For example, let’s say my total cholesterol is 257 and I make some changes to my diet. Hypothetically, the changes to the diet should lower my cholesterol by, say, 10%, to around 230. When will the levels settle there?
