High Cholesterol Message Board


High Cholesterol Board Index


I know I've had high cholesterol for a few years now, and I try eating as healthy as I possibly can (it's hard to eat well when you're a college student!). I'm only 21, and my cholesterol still remains ungodly high. Is there any advice out there from anyone regarding proper diet, and also, should I be so worried this young in my life? Thank you.
artgirl,

You're NEVER too young to worry :* (I think the grin is broken).

Seriously,
be more specific about your numbers and we'll all be able to throw some advice your way.

Actually the younger you get a handle on your heart's health, the better.
I agree that the younger you are the better off you are in getting control on the situation. However, when you are a female in your young 20's and have severe cholestorol (280+, mine is 350) medication is sometimes not an option because of childbearing years. This is my situation. I am playing a risk game because I'm trying to have a couple more children before I go on med's for life. Diet will not change my cholestorol although I am trying Lecithin tablets for the first time and hoping it does something. Reveal your numbers, they may not be as bad as you think.

I am also 21 years old and a college student. My cholesterol is high and rising! I've tried everything. I completely cut fat out of my diet, but this only made my cholesterol go higher.

so, my doctor told me to go on the South Beach Diet as well as take fish oil and garlic tablets. The diet is a milder form of Atkins, and pretty easy to stick to. I would suggest talking with your doctor about the diet.

i know how hard it is to be on a diet while as shcool, but hopefully this diet works!!

Good luck!
