High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

Hello, I was just wondering if anyone out there is in the same boat as me. I got high cholesterol when I was 38. (That was two years ago.) I really wasn't too overweight. I was 5'3" and 125 lbs. I am sucessfully controling it through a perminant low-fat diet and exercise. I'm now 115 lbs. People look at me funny when they find out that I eat healthy, because I have to watch my cholesterol. I really think mine is inheired, but my sister thinks it's stress related. Dad and my sister have high cholesterol too. I thought I wouldn't get it until I turned 50 or more. Dad had his heart attack at 55. Anyone else young, thin, and watching their cholesterol?

Yea! There's someone else like me out there. I, too, am young, thin, and watching my cholesterol. I'm 27 and have had high cholesterol for several years. This surprises most people because I'm 5'2" and about 110lbs. I enjoy running and also watch what I eat. The diet/exercise has helped some, but not enough. My HDLs are 82, but my LDLs are much higher than that. Unfortunately, I was put on Zocor last week because my high cholesterol is genetic. It's great you're controlling yours with diet and exercise. I wish that had worked sufficiently for me.
