cholesterol high??

hey guys,

anybody here have high cholesterol? both my good and bad are high and I don't know if need to be worried

For starters, I exercise regularly. 3x a week of cardio, 3x of weight-lifting, plyos 2x a week, volleyball 3x a week, etc, etc.

Diet - oatmeal everyday for breakfast, sensible lunch and dinner, lots of fiber. Trans-fats intakes are very low since I always usually just eat good wholesome food.

But my recent tests indication high LDL (and HDL) cholesterol. What gives?

Some people just don't process lipids as well as others. If exercise and good diet are not taking care of your problem then you might need some meds to control it. They work quite well from what I have seen in some friends. What does your physician say? Surely you obtained these results through a test ordered by an MD, no? What are your LDL and HDL numbers? I had mine checked earlier this year and I was 45 and 75 as I recall.

It could be genetics, I mean yea, a healthy diet and excercise is good, but its not guaranteed, you could still be plagued by high cholesterol b/c of your genetics. If I remember correctly, most doctors consider healthy cholesterol level to be somewhere around 200 or below.The breakdown of that 200 though is whats important, and that I believe was something like you wanna keep your HDL levels above 60, and your LDL levels below 100. So it is possible to have higher than 200 cholesterol and still be healthy b/c the breakdown is what is most important.

High risk is below 40 HDL...maybe a bit higher than that for women. 60 is good too but not really neccesary as anything between 40 and 60 is healthy. Some people fret over these minute variations in numbers and probably do themselves more harm than good with the added stress they place upon themselves. Ultimately, ask your doctor about your options. This is not something you are going to want to treat on your own.
