How high?: The suggestions below are generic and not personalized for you, as that would require your history and examination. Reduce weight, reduce intake of saturated fats, exercise at least 150 minutes/week. It would be prudent to talk to your doctor for a treatment more tailored to your needs. Wish you good health!

High cholesterol: High cholesterol usually refers to the amount of cholesterol found in a persons blood, and can be measured by laboratory tests. When cholesterol measurement is above the normal range for that individual then it is generally called high cholesterol. Interpretation of the meaning of high levels in the blood requires a physician consultation and other testing to determine any health risk.
