26 yr old Female with LDL (Cholestrol) of 137. Help ?

I had my blood taken last week and the results came out that I have high LDL cholestrol of 137. I didn t fast prior to my blood test and I asked my doc about that, and he says that he wants to know what my levels are when im living a normal life.... (which isn t fasting.) Anyways, I am 5 6, 144lbs, and fairly active but am worried I have this at such a young age. What should I do to lower it?

Don't worry. For a young person who's otherwise healthy, it's fine. Eat a "heart healthy" diet and exercise regularly. Don't pay much attention to "Lisa L". This is a guy who gets his medical "knowledge" from someone trained in fitness, not medicine.
