High Cholesterol
Aug 4, 2010
Earlier this year I was given a cholestorol test which came back with some alarming results.

Serum Cholestorol = 11.7 mmol/L (452 mg/dl)
Serum Triglyceride = 1.4 mmol/L (124 mg/dl)
Serum hDL Cholestorol = 1.81 mmol/L (70 mg/dl)
LDL Cholestorol (calcultated) = 9.3 mmol/L (360 mg/dl))
Cholestorol/HDH (risk ratio) = 6.5

*hope my conversions between mmol/L to mg/dl are correct*

I have subsequently been diagnoesed with Familial Hypercholestrolaemia.

Since January I have been on 80mg Statins to reduce this and the last results cam back with my Cholestorol being 6.2

I have since been reffered to a lipids clinic and i am still awaiting that appointment, but I was wondering what type of questions I should be asking when I have this appointment?

Also are their any specific tests I should be having to asses any long term damage of having such high Cholestorol?

A little about me:
Age: 33
Height: 5'11
Weight: 11st 10lb
social drinker

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
