How can I believe my diagnosis of high cholesterol? I eat a healthier diet than anybody I know!

Genes: Much of pop and government claims about diet in general and its effects on cholesterol are at best overstatements. A great number of factors contribute both to overall atherosclerosis risk and to cholesterol level, and the one that you can do nothing about is your genes. I trust you're already a fitness guy as well; it's perhaps time to repeat the labs and/or talk about medication. Good luck. ...Read more

I take warfarin and have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, what can eat to lower cholesterol and will not interact with warfarin?

I take warfarin and have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, what can eat to lower cholesterol and will not interact with warfarin?

Eat good foods: The ideal diet to lower cholesterol is a vegetarian diet. You don't have to be a vegetarian but your diet should be heavy on fruits and vegetables, light on meat. Fish is good. Carbs are okay. Your warfarin dose will be adjusted to your diet, not the other way round. The key to warfarin is to try to eat relatively consistently and to be aware which foods have a lot of vit k. (google this). ...Read more

History of high cholesterol (like sibs). Eat light, little meat. Gp stopped Zetia (ezetimibe) and prescribed red yeast. Is that ok for active, sharp 95yo woman?

History of high cholesterol (like sibs). Eat light, little meat. Gp stopped Zetia (ezetimibe) and prescribed red yeast. Is that ok for active, sharp 95yo woman?

My opinion: There is a paucity of data to support taking red yeast although lowering cholesterol is a reported use. The real question is whether a 95 yo woman should be on anything for cholesterol. Imo, if you have hx of heart attack, stent or bypass, it's reasonable to stabilize plaque. If not, I wouldn't use it. (ie there's no indication for primary prevention in this age group). ...Read more

Manage, not cure: Hi. Most endo's would tell you we can manage T2DM, high BP, and high cholesterol, but not cure them. If you're morbidly obese, bariatric surgery can cure T2DM and high BP; high cholesterol maybe, but it's usually got a genetic component. But in the absence of bariatric surgery, it is management of chronic condition. Healthy diet and exercise are cornerstones. Many very good med classes for all 3. ...Read more

What food should I eat because I have high cholesterol, working on night shift & what exercise is best for me...

Low carbohydrate: The healthiest way to eat is to limit starches and sugars to what your metabolism needs for fuel (about 100 grams per day). When you eat too many carbs your cholesterol tends to go up. The other important thing to avoid is fried foods because oils are damaged by high heat and they can be toxic to your body. The best exercise is a mix of strength and cardiovascular training at least 3 days per week. ...Read more
