I have been doing lots of reading on this site and hope someone out there may be able to help as i am getting stressed out about my cholesterol levels and what to do next.
I have had my cholesterol levels tested twice in the last month ( not sure my GP believed result! ) total cholesterol 9.1 HDL1.98, LDH6.6 and triglycerides 4.6, all i know is they are raised. My GP has indicated i will/may need to start statins and after reading about them i really don't want to, i eat healthily, BMI 22, gym three times a week, BP healthy and very normal and no other risk factors to having a heart attack ( only family history!! ) My GP has suggested there is little else for me to do, but i dont want statins...... has anyone any suggestions or similar experiences that may help or guide me as to what to do?
Thanks for reading this.
