Can a 210 cholesterol level be lethal ?

I have had a 210 level for about 4 years now and wonder if my arteries could be seriously clogged. Can it be possible at my age of 32 and that level of 210? Should I worry? any info or experiences would be nice.

NO a cholesterol of 210 is almost ideal. The ideal cholesterol level is 200 or lower if you have had heart problems they don't want it above 150 but that is hard to maintain. With your cholesterol level I would not worry at all. If you want to reduce it a little more eat a few walnuts every day (count them as part of your calorie intake) and I guarantee you your cholesterol will drop. Look it up on the net if you don't believe me. It is a proven fact.

I am 23 years old male. 4 months back i got tested for cholesterol and my levels were: TGL: 210, LDL: 82 and HDL: 47, during that time i was having a poor lifestyle. My weight was 82Kgs (height 174 cm) with no exercise and poor diet with lots of junk and occasional chicken intake (about once in 10days). Although we have a tendency of borderline cholesterol in our family, it only occurs after the age of 60. Now 4 months later, my levels are TGL: 106, LDL: 89 and HDL: 49 with my weight: 69Kgs. I have not made any drastic changes in my lifestyle or food, just added 40mins exercise (running/jogging). I have not tried any weight loss programs, just substituted 1 meal each day by salads and giving up non-veg food completely. Now I am concerned if this could just be a temporary thing or is it now so that i have a tendency and my levels can shoot up anytime? Is this anything to do with the family tendency, or can this be explained by lifestyle issues? Can this happen without a family tendency as well? I am worried because my insurance company and doctor got me alarmed.
