High Cholesterol Board Index


I've been struggling with high cholesterol for awhile now despite regular exercise and a healthy diet. It runs in my family. I have been trying to tweak my diet and use supplements, but it hasn't helped. I have been taking fish oil and coq10. I wanted to see if any could give me an opinion on whether or not I should consider Statins. I am 24 and would really rather not take them, but am scared of risking my health. For every bad aspect of my numbers there seems to be a good aspect to balance it out, but I don't know if that's just me being hopeful. I am seeing a cardiologist for further discussion this week, but wanted to get additional insight from others.
Here are my numbers:
