High Cholesterol Board Index


I'm new here, but have been a lurker for quite some time. I'm 23 yrs. old and had my cholesterol tested for the first time less than three months ago. All I know from that test is that my total cholesterol was 266. My grandparents on dads side have high cholesterol so I was told this could be genetic. Well since I have changed my diet, started exercising, quit the birth control pill and these are the results I was given today. (test was done last week).

Total Cholesterol: 226
LDL: 141
HDL: didn't get this number
Trig: 182.

Any suggestions on what I can do to make it better?? I'm really scared of having a heart attack anyday. I've been told that won't happen but that doesn't seem to be good enough for me. I've been to a cardiologist and had an EKG, stress test and ultrasound of the heart done. Everything came back fine.

Thanks for looking and for any input!
