I was wondering what I can do to lower cholesterol? even though I don t understand how it got so high. in February 2013 my cholesterol was in the 100 s and now in October 2014 is in the 200 s. I don t know how it got up there that fast, I am thinking it could be from what I ate the night before, I was not told they would take blood from me and to fast the night before, I did eat over 12 hours before. my name is Angela I am 36 years I m 5 5 I weigh 206

Hi. I just had my cholesterol checked. Total: 246 Tri: 79 HDL: 83 LDL: 147 51 years old, single, white female great health, work out almost daily, thin, muscular, tall and this is the first time my levels have ever been elevated. I recently started adding coconut oil to my diet and that is the only thing that I see that could have changed it besides becoming menopausal in last year. Is there a reason for concern? What can I do besides taking drugs to lower LDL. Many thanks!

Are there any cholesterol lowering drugs that are not dangerous? I tried Lipitor, but had incredible aches and pains almost immediately. I really don t want to take medication, but the doctor I went to said it was urgent that I take it. I have high cholesterol and am overweight by about 75 pounds. My HDL is 50, LDL 188, Triglycerides 382. I also have a family history of heart disease. I am otherwise perfectly healthy, except for migraines (which have decreased over the years). I want to try to reduce my cholesterol by diet and exercise if possible, but the doctor that I went to said she would not allow that. I told her I wanted to do some research before I got on a medication that could cause me to be in pain every day. She said that she does not deal with diet issues - and she declined me as a patient after that conversation. She didn t expect me to take a liver test, and I thought that was a requirement before you take Lipitor. Is that true? I really want to find a doctor in the Little Rock area that focuses on healthy eating and exercise - which I am determined to do! I quit smoking two months ago and when I realized how wonderful I felt after quitting, I determined then and there to lose weight and start a healthier life. I found out just last week that I have high cholesterol when I did a wellness exam for my employment. What do I do?
