Dear Doc, I just got a regular blood test done with lipid profiling. While all looks normal and okay, I was alarmed to see my LDL Cholestrol level to be at 113.8 whereas normal range was a maximum of 100. I am not a big butter, cheese, ghee or fried foods eater. I do have a healthy share of fibre also in my food. And I try to exercise 3 times a week with a full time bank job. Please let me know if this is a high level or is it ok and can be managed with a little more care. I am 30 and female.. havent had kids and have regular periods. There is no heart condition in my family. My grandparents were diabetes patients.
dont worry.its near optimal level.In order to decrease LDL, diet should include lots of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and fish. continue ur excercise. avoid stress. yoga and breathing excercises are also helpful. take care
