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.

two months ago I did two hydrocolonics in one week. after each colonic there was gel like substances with red squiggly lines coming out and minimal blood on the toilet paper. Ever since that I have been having a problem with food feeling like it gets stuck in the middle of my chest, burping a lot and a pain in my left back shoulder blade that radiates down my arm and up to my ear. It seems like when I eat fruits and vegetables I am fine with things not getting stuck in the middle of my chest but, protein and fats may be what causes the problem. My last cbc blood work showed my WBC count is 3.8 normal range between {4.0-12.0} K/UL my NEUTROPHIL count is 36.0 normal range between {41.0-71.0} % and my LYMOPHOCYTE count is 46.9 normal rainge is {24.0-44.0}%. I have been having these types of numbers for over nine years and my doctor doesn think anything about it. after researching on line I am questioning whether I could have the hpylori infection and a peptic ulcer. I ate some fruit about a year ago that my husband brought home from a market and got a pain so bad on my right lower abdomen that I could barely walk. I went and did a hydrocolonic and was able to get through it. I also have low vitamin d- 32 reference range: 30-100 unit ng/ml I also have high cholesterol 221 {140-200)mg/dl triglycerides 33 {30-150}mg/dl HDL 87{35-65}mg/dl chol/hdl ratio 2.54 {2.00-4.50}ratio VLDL 7 {6-30} mg/dl LDL 127 {70-130}mg/dl I am 46 years old and weigh 118lbs I am 5 2 . I jog and go to the gym at least 4 times a week.. I eat very healthy.. tons of fruits and vegetables and fish and chicken.. not much sugar or breads or pastries... on weekends we do drink beer and eat somewhat off but still not too bad... I am into natural remedies. Do you have any ideas what could be going on?

I am a 64 year old male. I follow a low fat diet, eat 15,000 calories a day and walk half an hour 3 times a week. I have slightly raised blood pressure but am only on 1 'water' tablet for this. Last year my cholestral was 6.2 so I took plant sterols in tablet for for 12 months. This year my cholestral is 7.6. I am taking Cipralex and was wondering whether this is a side effect. If not, waht more can I do to reduce cholestrol - I refuse to take statins.
