For what reasons might a average weight 20 year old female have high cholesterol?

Diet

Hypercholesterolemia
It is very possible that this healthy, 20 yo female has a diet that encourages a high blood cholesterol level. In addition, the levels may be due to genetics. In either event, she should be examined by her physician to determine the cause and be treated accordingly. This will help prevent health problems in the long run.

I am a healthy 19 year old female. My doctor says I have high bad cholesterol & low good cholesterol. How do I fix it?

Lower dietary

intake of animal fats, exercise 30 minutes at least 3 times a week, and lose weight. If that doesn't work, medications are effective. But your heart disease risk depends on a lot of other factors, so you need to consult a doctor for specific recommendations.

Dr. Seema N. Patel answered:

Is it bad to eat two large eggs everyday? I'm a 22 year old female. My friend told me I shouldn't because of cholesterol.

Depends

The yolk has the largest amount of cholesterol. One yolk gives you half of what the total recommended amount of saturated fat you need. If you are not eating any other sources of saturated fat for the whole day, then its fine But if you are eating meat, eating out, eating cookies/cakes/etc then you are definitely getting the saturated fat. So try for about 3-4 yolks per week and more egg white

IM A 33 YEAR OLD FEMALE MY CHOLESTEROL IS 267, TRIGLYCERIDES IS 644, DHDL IS 32... WHAT DOES THIS MEAN IVE HAD A STRESS TEST , LABS ,

Hello.

Hello. It is always best to discuss these things with your doctor. A normal cholesterol level is less than 200 mg/ dl- so this is elevated. A normal Triglyceride level is 35 to 160 mg/dl- so this is also elevated. A healthy High Density lipoprotein level is more than 30 mg/dl - yours is just hovering. Am assuming that you fasted for at least 8 hours before these labs were drawn, otherwise the results really don't have much meaning. Your doctor can help find ways to get these levels in a better range.

my neck area is turning yellow, why is this happening? I'm a 30 year old female, 4 kids, tubal ligation a year ago, 5'7" 180 lbs. high cholesterol.

No reason...

Hard to identify something systemic, when it is your neck area. It may be added fat, skin color change-since this is sun-exposed, hair coloring, etc. Clearly not a liver issue!

58 year old female, bursitis in shoulders and knees flares up when I rigorously run or cycle for more than twenty minutes to lower cholesterol. What ?

Choices limited

Water
You can try resistance training (ie weights). I would suggest low weights with high reps. Other possibilities include aerobics classes or even water aerobics. Looking at your situation from another perspective, maybe it is time to have your conditions evaluated for treatment if their symptoms limit your recreational and fitness activities.

hi im 27years old female and ive been havin chest since december last year and 8 ecg all clear blood workd done low cholestorol and now pain is only?

Not your heart

Platelet
It's unlikely that the chest pain you're having is heart related unless you use cocaine or have diabetes. If you smoke, please stop. Other causes of chest pain like GERD, peptic ulcer disease, gall bladder disease, chest wall pain, muscle spasm, myofascial syndrome, rheumatism, etc. should be considered.

Dr. G J. Funari answered:

How should I exercise my fingers that are starting to have enlarged knuckles due to RA? 56 Year old female, only medication is Zocor 20 mg. for cholosterol. Take calicum 1200 mg, and fish oil 1000 mg.

If

If you have not already done so, you should be evaluated by a rheumatologist to assess your joint involvement. They can confirm the diagnosis, and come up with a treatment regimen that usually involves medication and exercise. They will also monitor the progression of the disease.
