September 27, 2009 2:45am CST
Recently I got a physical for Life Insurance and upon getting my results back I've come to find out that I do have health problems. The thing that i was afraid of was High Blood pressure and no thats fine, but my cholestorol is off the charts. HDL normal, LDL wasnt even listed because my Triglycerides was way high. Normal is 0-150 and i scored a 605. Now with a score like that I've taken a whole new look on life. Ive began to eat less fatty meats and more vegs now. Now what are the best things to lower Cholestorol.

To lower the bad cholesterol, you must watch what you eat. It's not only about the FAT that you eat, it's also about the processed-fast food stuff. You should try to lay-away from those at the same time take it easy on the beef. To increase good cholesterol, you can't actually find it in food. It can only be found in exercise and having a well disposition. That's the only way to convert your bad cholesterol to good cholesterol. Any medicine or herbal food supplements who tell you otherwise, is lying.

I do not have high cholesterol so I don't know much about it. I think its best if you ask a doctor for a proper diet. Else you can search health websites. Most of the websites have detailed information on cholesterol.

I had experienced that. After 6 months of treatment of my PCOS, i was advised to check my sugar and cholesterol. I have a normal sugar but my Triglycerides is high too. This might come soon that high in Triglycerides can elevate my sugar level too in due time. Now, I have to eat less fatty food, and go with the vegetables. This is good for my Health.

Cut out red meat and fatty convenience foods altogether. Eat chicken and fish, especially oily fish. Olive oil is also supposed to be beneficial in reducing cholesterol levels, but your doctor should be able to ie ou diatary advise.
