I am so glad to see this post. I also have epilepsy and had my cholesterol taken two years ago and found out it was high. I had a total cholesterol of 269. My HDL was 73, LDL was 162 and my trigycerides were 168 (the test said normal was below 399). The doctor suggested that I take medication but I chose not to. I did dramatically change my diet and my cholesterol fell to 210 with a HDL of 68 but I felt yucky on my lack of fat diet and I was always hungry. I did lose 10 lbs. I am now back to my former diet and figure my cholesterol must be back up as well.

The thing is....nobody has a problem with heart disease except for one uncle who was diagnosed with it at the age of 68.

I am 51 years old, 5'7" and 135 lbs. My cholesterol in the past always hovered around 200 until I went through menopause and it shot up to 269. But dang it my HDL was 73 and my family history is good. So I don't see why I should take medication.
