The new variables are stress levels up from PTSB and completed a prescribed 6 month course of lexapro (10mg) in August. I'm 43 year old female so also may be age related? Diet has not changed much over the years. I'm 9st (always, this varies very little) and 5 ft 6 inches. Walk and cycle regularly. No known heart disease on either parents side. My younger brother who is very health and fitness conscious, also like me doesn't smoke, was baffled when his GP told him recently his Cholesterol was 5.4.
Any comments would be welcomed. Can stress or medication (lexapro) be a factor to cholesterol?
