I am 35 years older, health weight/diet, do not smoke.
However my cholesterol level is 5.7 - I am unsure what else I can do to lower it and I’m feeling very anxious that it’s high especially given my age. The nurse said that high cholesterol increases risk of stroke and heart attacks which has further worried me.
I have an appointment next week for a blood pressure test, however I’m really worrying now
Any advice/experience greatly appreciated.
