9.5 mmol/litre is pretty high but you can't take statin drugs while pregnant. Do as everyone is saying, eat vegetables, whole grains, use virgin olive oil . Stay away from the trans fats, and anything with a high cholesterol content. Stay healthy and good luck with your pregnancy.

Hi im a 34 year old male. I am 5 8 at 312 lbs. I dont have an active job and dont exercise. I recently got a mens exam and got some alarming news. My cholesterol is 160. Low hdl and high ldl . My eating habits are horrible to say the least. Everything came back fine on my blood work except the cholesterol and my liver enzimes. My ast was 44 and my alt is 95. I was a super heavy smoker for about 2 years but quit about 3 weeks before my check up. I was told it could be fatty liver but I read it could be cancer. I lose sleep every night and worry myself sick. Im scared its liver cancer. Im scheduled for a liver ultrasound tomorrow. My question is do you think it will be liver cancer and are ultrasounds accurate or could they miss something. Thank you for your time and expertise.

I am a 52 year old white female. My total cholesterol is 213. My HDL is 102, triglycerides 78, and LDL 95. While I am glad that my HDL is high...it means that my overall cholesterol is high which prevents my insurance company from giving an annual discount on cost. What are your thoughts? Is my cholesterol really high?

My husband has been on Lipitor and Avalide to control his cholesterol and blood pressure. We have been trying to conceive for three years. His sperm analysis last year was pretty bad, with low counts and poor morphology. I keep hearing that it could be his medications that are causing the problem, but I can't find any information online. His physician refuses to consider the possibility. Can the problem lie with his blood pressure and/or cholesterol medicine? If so, are they any safe medicine that he can take while we are trying to conceive?
