High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

Hi! I hope some of you can help me. I am a 47 year old female, in excellent health, not overweight, with normal blood pressure. I exercise very regularly and am very fit. You can imagine my surprise when I got my bloodwork back!
Total Cholesterol 270
Triglicerides 168
HDL 66
VLDL (whatever that is!) 33
LDL 170
LDL/HDL Ratio 2.5
When I called my internist to discuss these numbers, he said something about "family history" (which I DO have) and doctors coming under fire for "undertreating women." He then put me on 40 mgs. of Zocor daily.
I would love to hear from all of you as to what you think of my numbers and my doctors' suggested treatment. Thank you so very much!
