After this point, we only use height and wt to determine healthy vs not-healthy-wt ranges for both men and women. It is a rough estimate and provide you a guide to keep "ideal body wt" for better health. If you have specific concern about your wt/height vs age (we shrink in height with age), consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

My 12 year old son has a regularly high BP of 140/70  height 167 wt 94kgs family history of high BP and cvd?

Obese: Based on the measurements of 167 cm and 94 kgs at 12 years old, his bmi is >99th percentile at 33.7. This means he is obese, not just overweight. This is a huge health risk for him and is probably the reason for his high blood pressure. It is difficult, but he really needs to start losing weight. This is a slow process that involves lifestyle changes (diet and exercise). A nutritionist can help. ...Read more

An older person needs adequate muscle but fat isn't an asset. Don't target a number, target a level of fitness and function. ...Read more

Is having a cholesterol of 219 bad at the age of 18? If it is, how can I stop it?

Depends: 219 is only a piece of the story. You must know the hdl. Some 18 year olds have a chol of 219 of which nearly half is the good (HDL) variety. (very low risk!) so get the rest of the data before deciding. If you need to help him/her lower their cholesterol, check out: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/high-blood-cholesterol/ds00178/tab=indepth - and see the "life style" section in particular. ...Read more

Noticed in mar '13 (age 42) my serm cholesterol was 266mg/dl. Now in feb'14 its 250mg/dl. I'm not on any medication. What exercise can reduce it?

Total cholesterol: Is not as meaningful as ldl, or bad, cholesterol, and vldl, or second bad, cholesterol and hdl, or good, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels too. You need to follow all of these numbers, not just total cholesterol. Ask your doctor for specific advice. Also, your heartburn could be angina, so you really need to see your doctor. ...Read more

High cholesterol: Hi. Total cholesterol is a fairly uninformative number, and treatment decisions should not be based on it. It helps to know your overall profile. If "high" is due to HDL, no problem. If "high" is due to LDL, that is a risk for atherosclerosis. Are your triglycerides high or normal? Hi triglycerides correlate with low HDL, which is another risk for atherosclerosis. So without more information... ...Read more

When some1 age 25-30 has a MI,what is usually the cause?Is it cholesterol?If so how elevated is it?Recent norm stress/echo.I probably shouldn't worry?

Usually: If someone that young has a heart attack is related to genetics and/or drug use(like cocaine). Even person's with genetic cholesterol syndromes(nothing like you regularly see in the community), if and when they have early heart disease it tends to be in the 30s-40s. A normal stress test and echo always provide reasonable reassurance. Bigger question is why are you worried about heart disease? ...Read more

I ate unhealthy at a young age, but never had any problems like cholesterol and blood pressure. Am healthy now, but could child diet affectme late on?

Don't worry: There is a "pop" / government claim that the primary prevention of atherosclerosis must begin in early childhood with diet, simply because of the existence of fatty streaks -- tiny spots in arteries superficially resembling real disease and seen in all youngsters. Most of my fellow-pathologists discount this and believe these lesions are inconsequential. Adopt a fitness lifestyle now & it's moot. ...Read more

?

Something isn't: adding up. Perhaps typo...your ID info says age 76, not 16. Total cholesterol is given in mg/dl (370 IS high), but other values in mmol/l. However LDL of 7.36 mmol/l (284 mg/dl) is QUITE high, too. Unfortunately your 1.16 mmol/l (44 mg/dl) HDL isn't very far into the protective range. Ratio is high. Notes say you have had heart stent so cholesterol needs to be much lower;need meds. Review with Doc ...Read more

No, Probably VeryBad: Bad values any age. Cholesterol is a fat made by every body cell & not best test, promoted because cheaper. Ldl particles are the primary driver of atherosclerosis; large-hdl can help prevent/regress. Ldl & HDL are lipoproteins, i.e. Protein particles which carry all fats in the water outside cells. Ldl is always in nmol/l, best <700, HDL in ┬Ámol/l, best large-hdl >10. See NMR particle test, <$100. ...Read more
