I am 26 years old female with high cholesterol since 16 years of age due to heredity. I am very active but do not have the best (or the worst) diet. My total cholesterol went from 250 to 217 after taking Red Yeast Rice twice a day for the past year....however, now I have elevated liver enzymes (ALT 40 and AST 47) which were up from 16 and 18 last year. I have stopped taking the Red Yeast Rice and want to change to something else to help my cholesterol along with changing my diet. A friend suggested Mega Red. Will this be harmful to my already elevated liver enzymes?? Also, what are other good alternatives to lowering my cholesterol?? Thanks!!
I just had a lipid profile performed and it showed total chol of 239, triglycerides 95, HDL 76, LDL 133, with a ratio of T. Chol :HDL of 3.1. My VAP showed I am in a good profile regarding LDL (Fluffy kind). I exercise regularly at least 45 min a day at least 5 days a week. I am age 69. I am 5 ft 1 inch and weigh 103. A few months ago, I was on a cruise, was less attentive to diet, and my T chol was 248. When retested 3 months later, my T cholesterol was 217. In general, I eat healthy low fat foods--never any fried foods. Very occasionally I have a couple of slices of pizza. I had pizza about 1 week before this last test. Do you think I need to go on statins?
