How long take go from high cholesterol of 8.2 level to normal level? I am 32 year old women. I stop smoking and replaced for e-cig. Can I die?
Vegetables: Cholesterol numbers are usually less than 140 being very good, so it is extremely unlikely your cholesterol is "8.2." That being said, cholesterol in the diet is only found in animal products (meat, eggs, dairy). So if you eliminate animal products from your diet (vegan diet), the effect on cholesterol can be quite dramatic, often without the need for medications. ...Read more
A 50 year old female's carotid ultrasound reported mild plaque. Her cholesterol etc. Are good. Previously, she had high homocysteine level. Is any treatment needed at this time?
Carotid stenosis: We don't worry until "severe" description of the plaques, occluded 95%. At this point the risk increases for plaque to break off and cause a stroke. There is no indication to treat the "mild" condition. Be sure to control any hypertension, keep your cholesterol at goal, and take a 81mg Aspirin everyday after age 50 if you physician recommends it based on your risk factors. ...Read more

Is cholesterol of 175 and LDL of 105 healthy for a 26 year old woman? I am currently taking isotretinoin, so perhaps these numbers are temporary.
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. ...Read more
Diet: 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.

41 year old healthy male. Total cholesterol of 235. LDL of 151, HDL of 66, Trigs of 91. Should I be concerned about LDL levels? I exercise/eat well
Depending on your family history and other risk factors you may need medical treatment for prevention of cardiovascular disease. It would be prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered these tests.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Hi im 27 year old and im suffering with high cholesterol level. My question is it safe to use L-glutamine in my daily routine?
Why?: Glutamine is a normal component of your diet and somebody's trying to sell you something you don't need for anything. Eat some protein instead. If you cholesterol is extremely high, your life's in danger and you can be treated effectively with real medicine. If it's just a bit high, it's lifestyle changes first, real medications if this fails. ...Read more
I'm a 33 year old female my cholesterol is 267, triglycerides is 644, dhdl is 32... What does this mean I've 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. ...Read more
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: 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. ...Read more

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! ...Read more
Hi I'm a 26 year old female I have a total cholesterol of 206 and BP systolic of 140. I also have type 2 diabetes. I am worried I will have a heart at?
Type 2 diabetes: Type 2 diabetes may occur at your age but that would be uncommon if you are not overweight. Please check this with your doctor. If you have type 2 diabetes you can beat it within a year!!! Cholesterol and BP are not far from normal and should be "normal" if you control your diabetes. I would appreciate it if you could let me know how things develop. ...Read more

Chest pain: It sounds like it may be musculoskeletal but always good to ensure. Ice packs and moist heat will definitely help me move in the right direction with gentle stretching and massaging. This type of pain can be very painful so an Ibuprofen may help to. Make sure you take deep breaths or else you may be at risk for a lung infection from taking shallow breaths. ...Read more
27 year old female, 5'6, " 262.4 lbs, ekg: normal, holter monitor (48 hours): normal, cholesterol: ldl- 111, hdl- 49. Chest pain related to heart?
Chest pain: Not enough data for more than a guess. Its probably not cardiac related, BUT, you are at increased risk. You are morbidly obese and weigh roughly 100 #s more than you should. Each pound of flesh equals about a mile of blood vessels. So, your heart, a pump the size of your fist has to pump blood 100 miles further than it should. If you smoke, use illicit drugs or drink the risk is higher. ...Read more

My cholesterol is 204 is that to high I'm 36 years old and I'm a female. How can I lower my cholesterol?
Normal, but: That's normal but, like grades, it can always be better. The raw number, actually, isn't very helpful since the components include both bad and good cholesterol and the higher the latter, the better. So check on your LDL (bad) and HDL (good) and see what they are. If you HDL is >60, your total cholesterol may seem a bit high, but you're at lower than average risk. ...Read more
