Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Ideal levels of LDL are below 80 mg.So considering that your LDL levels of 170 mg is very high.High levels of cholesterol
causes increased atherosclerosis
and definitely a risk factor for future STROKE
OR MI.Continue your exercises,change your supplement,reduce your intake of animal products and check the cholesterol level again after 3 months.If still high,then take anti cholesterol medicine in consultation with your doctor.Also get your BP,sugar,thyroid
etc checked up.Thanks and good luck.
