Hi All, I am new here and have recently had a health check at the doctors surgery and it looks as though my cholesterol and triglyceride readings are high. My total cholesterol was 6.51, my HDL was 1.44, my non-HDL was 5.07, my Chol/HDL was 4.5 and my triglycerides were 4.80 mmol/L. I am a 42 year old male.
The nurse didn't mention seeing the doctor so apart from cleaning up my diet and exercising more should I look at going back to discuss medication? I would prefer not to take medication if this can be addressed through lifestyle choices alone.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
