Hi I went for a nhs health check and the blood results came back as my cholesterol bing 6.9 The nurse weighed me done my height and measured my stomache and apparently i am as i should be on the chart that she looked at. BP was also normal She asked if anyone in family had suffered with angina and i said yes my granfather did She just gave me the sheets for eating more healthy and do more exercise. I asked if i need to see my doctor and she said no Once i got home i read through the sheets My mother also has high cholesterol and she has had several mini strokes before the age of 65 Should i now think about going to see my doctor after all

Hello.. thanks for writing us
one important thing that you missed in history is your age and any symptoms you have or not

nevertheless your , bmi, bp are within normal range and if you are asymptomatic dont be stressed
start daily brisk walking or aerobic exercise at least 30 min per day on almost 5 days a week
cut your salt and fat in food, increase portion of fruits and vegetables.
Avoid smoking if you are doing

Recheck your cholesterol after 6 month
I think you got your query solved
good luck
