My cholesterol level 7 and blood sugar 5. I am 70 years old

Any medics or nutritionists out there? My health check yesterday, (I m 70), showed everything fine except cholseterol. BP 120/70. BMI 22.5. Blood sugar 5. I m fit, exercise regularly. Given those figures, should I actually be concerned about a cholesterol level of 7.0? nejesan, I know what you mean but I have no intention of popping my clogs for at least another 30 years. Calcinatio, Yes, I m sure you re right. It s just that the guy who did the tests got all excited about it and sent the results off to my GP. Meditation eh? To this Zen Buddhist, Bluebootz - I love you to bits!

It is all a case of relative risk. Your cholesterol should not be viewed in isolation and is not, by good doctors, managed that way. Also you did not mention the result of the rest of your lipid profiling which may be relevant. Try inserting your data into a cardiac risk calculator and I think you will be reassured. ( be careful of the units!)
