Hi all, just joined this very interesting group. I know others may have posted similar questions but I thought I would give the specifics with my question. I just got a test done and these were the results:
Total Cholesterol 7.42
I know this is in high range but the lab guy told me since HDL is high, it sort of balances out so no need for any drastic changes in diet or medication at the moment. I am generally of good health, normal blood pressure, but if late have been feeling very slight discomfort/sensation around the left side of my chest around heart area, or is this just due to a tight seat safety belt lol.
I will appreciate advice from all on what I should be doing to lower the total cholesterol, if that is necessary.
Thanks in advance.
