It would be easier for me to respond if I knew a few more facts. Such as, What are your OTHER lipids-profile numbers? HDL?, LDL?, "risk-factor,"? Tri-gly.'s? BUT Even In the absence of these numbers, I can say one thing: IGNORE YOUR CHOLESTEROL LEVEL NUMBER!
From what you DID write, you sound pretty healthy. You're active, eat right, and take your meds.
I have an acquaintance who has almost the same problem you do. ALL his numbers are fine, except that his triglycerides are always around 800!
Blood test numbers are indicators. Having high cholesterol means, you have a greater risk of heart disease. THAT'S ALL! From your letter, all the other indicators, that ARE in your control are fine.
So, keep up the good work, and STOP WORRYING!View Thread
