Elevated VLDL - lovebird
My 10 year old peach faced lovebird hen's blood values came back with an elevated VLDL at 92. She's already on a low fat, low protein diet to help manage her hormones and it's not high in cholesterol as well. She's always been a steady 57(ish) grams. Her doctor told me to give her red palm oil to help bring it down. I'm also giving her oatmeal every morning now. Can you please tell me what else I might do to lower her VLDL level? Is there some kind of medication we could be looking at? She's getting a series of Lupron now.
Her typical diet consists of Roudybush Low Fat Maintenance crumbles as the staple with a pinch of flax seeds and wild blueberry extract powder sprinkled on top. Cooked oatmeal with a sweet veggie or fruit for breakfast. A medley of veggies for dinner, sometimes with cooked grains and sometimes with fruit. Red palm oil before bed. Then other seeds and nuts only for training, foraging, and an occasional treat.
