High Cholesterol Board Index

Karen, EXTREMELY high cholestrol is not so rare as I once thought.
I had never had my cholesterol checked, and at 47 I found I had very high cholesterol numbers. I felt great, but my total cholesterol level was 641! I am a very small person, weighing about 100. I am healthy, active, and eat a very good diet. My HDL was 86, and my Tri level 78. I was told it was genetic. After 6 wks on Crestor my cholesterol levels dropped to an over all 222! I have been on Crestor for about 3-4 months with no side effects. My sons who are in their 20s have a genetic high cholesterol too. They say they are "young and healthy", and both chose to do nothing about it. One tried a strict "vegan" diet. After 2 months his numbers were higher, so he's eating what he wants again. I know it is difficult to know what to do. Good Luck...DeAnne
