High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

39 y/o male, 5'11", 199lbs. Total Cholesteral 302, HDL 58, LDL 197, Trig. 236, Trig./HDL ratio 4.1, Total chol./HDL ratio 5.2 Doctor seemed very concerned and wants me to start on Lipitor immediately. After reading a bit I have no interest in these medications. Both of my parents have excellent cholesteral levels so I do not suspect hereditary problems. I smoke, drink LOTS of coffee, prob. a bit more beer than I should, not a big junk food eater, eat fatty red meats, lots of fried stuff, tons of salt, do not exercise. I've read so much conflicting information that I don't know what to believe. Also, some of the information goes so far as to label high cholesteral levels vs. health risks a MYTH. I hope I can lower my levels naturally. Still want to enjoy life. Thanks!
