High Cholesterol Message Board


High Cholesterol Board Index


Blue the good news is your parents are alive! The gene most likely got passed from only one parent. My father passed his on to me (he had a heart attack and died at age 39) and I'm skinny too!

It not easy having high cholesterol and being thin. The secret is to eat DENSE foods. Lots of bananas and fruit to try and fill you up is a good idea.

Having GENETIC cholesterol I would not recommend taking in a lot of meats and fats. You'll find that it has worked wonders for people who don't have genetic cholesterol problems but has also raised many people's cholesterol and can contribute to intestinal problems and heart disease as well.

Also processed foods are not good and neither is a lot of dairy. The majority of your nutrition is best from fresh fruits, vegetables and raw nuts. Almonds have been known to have cholesterol lowering capabilities, as well as garlic.

You'll find many different opinions here - I just gave you one of them.

Good luck!
