Unfortunately, you may be one of the people for whoem diet alone will not lower cholesterol.

My Mom is very fit for her age, walks loads, eats a very low fat diet, is at the lower end of a healthy weight but her cholesterol reading was originally over 7.

She very reluctantly started taking Statins and very quickly her cholesterol dropped to below 5.

Has your GP suggested changing your diet in anyway?

Hi Alba

My Dad's cholestral was very high and now its normal. He is on medication which he will have to always take but he also watched what he ate. I think with your medication and the right diet your cholestral will come down. Oily fish is very good for you and lots of fruit and veg. Your GP should be able to help you.
High cholestral affect lots of people even those that are fit and healthy so please try not to feel its just you. There are even people out there with high cholestral and they dont even know it.
Go and have a chat with your GP

Take care

High cholestral will not cause the symtoms you describe. The dizzy feelings and palpatations are all symptoms of anxiety because you are worrying. Try concentrating on your breathing and think of happy things, try and get your mind thinking about something else.

Dont worry too much about your cholesterol count......the important bit is the blood lipids and their ratio.......... good cholesterol is vital to the body..LDL (bad cholesterol) is the one to watch because this is the one that can oxidise and stick to the arteries......... eat stacks of antioxident food ( bright colours)NONI is a good supplement too ( its concentrated fruit).......dont stuff yourself on creamcakes LOL......try to sort out your cholesterol before submitting to statins as they block coenzymeQ10 which is important for every cell in the body.......good luck xx

Re: help jsut check blood cholersterol very high 11.2

Please try to stop panicing about you cholesterol levels. They are not desperately high and in the first instance the Dr may want you to change your diet and try to reduce it that way. High cholesterol is not a heart disease...it is just better for your heart to lower it as much as possible. Statins can be given to do this if diet does not work, they really are pretty safe and it depends what you worry about most, your cholesterol level and heart health or taking statins! You should seek advice from medical people who will explain it all carefully to you. You are NOT going to die because you have a slightly elevated cholesterol reading. Honestly!!
