Has anyone had choleserol higher than 264 ?

I was shocked when my latest blood work came back w/my cholesterol at 264. The DR prescribed Vytorin. I am in my 40 s, don t drink or smoke. Don t eat red meat or anything fried. Very healthy lifestyle. My DR said it can very well be heredity. This is scaring me to death! Has anyone had choleserol higher than 264 ?

My total cholesterol was 279 and I freaked out! But you cannot go by the TOTAL cholesterol number alone. My HDL - the good choleseterol - was 97, which was high off the charts. A physician friend looked at my total cholesterol profile and said I have nothing to worry about since my HDL was so high, and my triglycerides were low. He also said to stay away from any prescription meds that lower cholesterol - there negative effects far outway any positives. My advice, get another professional opinion from a doctor who is not so dogmatic, and stuck in the conventional, sometimes lazy, way of thinking - times have changed greatly with advances done by alternative professionals. Good luck. Tina in Cleveland, Ohio
