Blood lipids have no correlation with heart disease. They can be a sign that something is happening but people with low levels have just as many heart attacks as those with high levels. As you get older, high levels are indicative to better health and long life. There is a very good correlation between high calcium and heart attack. Does this mean you should lower your calcium? Of course not, any more than lowering your so called cholesterol will prevent a heart attack. Feel free to email me for more sources. You will find that those on this site with opposing points of view, do not have the courage to allow email

High cholesterol is not good for your health.it causes narrowing the blood vessels in your body and in some vital organs like heart,kidney,brain etc.you need to lower it.avoid high fat content foods,take regular meals,avoid smoking and take only moderate alcohol if you are talking,.regular exercise is must and continuously is also must.keep a watch on it,get checked periodically and live health life.

I am in my 20 s, slightly underweight. I eat a balanced diet (high in fish and veggies, low in red meats), but have very high cholesterol. I don t know if there is history of heart disease in my family and have no way to find out. Anyone have experience with this or know what could cause this? Everything has checked out okay at the doc, except the high chol. count. I have always been on this same diet, only with even less meat when I was younger. (mother was vegetarian). Thank you for all of your insight! : )

I have a protruding upper abdomen which has been that way for awhile. I m finding it very difficult to do crunches and sit ups and if I even eat the smallest meal, I notice it sticks out even more as if I ve eaten a meal for two. It always hurt and never seems to go down even if I drink a magnesium citrate. My lower stomach will go down, but not upper. What could it be? I do suffer from iron deficient anemia, serious acid reflux and serious amounts of protein in my urine. Also diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

I have a question about heart rates and health in general. When I work out my heart rate seems all over the place. Today it went down to 55 and then jumped to 145 and then back down to 55 depending on how I was breathing. Is this dangerous? I feel completely fine. I thought that there might be something wrong with the machine I was using, but I tried the same thing on another machine and had similar results. One time, my heart rate went as high as 232. Also, when I sleep, my heart rate sky rockets after feeling really cold and waking up. I was told I m having panic attacks without anybody actually checking me out or running any tests. I used to be on medication for depression, but I stopped taking it because it seemed like the medication made these episodes worse. It s as if my body is thinking backwards in these situations. I m learning to just live with it, but I can t help but wonder why it happens to begin with. It doesn t seem normal. Also, my cholesterol was a little high at a health screening, so I ve cut back on dairy, and I don t eat a lot of junk food to begin with. I ve been to the doctors several times, but they just tell me my heart is healthy and sounds good. I wish people could see what s going on while I m sleeping or while I m exercising because those are the times I m really having issues. Any insight, suggestions, or advice would be appreciated.
