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?

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?

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

I am a 42 year old female, BMI of 20 - not overweight, with fairly low cholesterol. I have been having pain on the left side of my chest for several days. I had a normal EKG a month ago. My doctor says it's muscular, but I can't seem to get relief from st

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?

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

Hai I am 24 years old man, have cholesterol level is 201mg/dl and sgpt is 94U/L tested before having food Is it normal or?

Hai I am 24 years old man, have cholesterol level is 201mg/dl and sgpt is 94U/L tested before having food Is it normal or?

94 IU/L not normal: Your total cholesterol level is acceptable at 201 mg/dl, but it would be significantly lower in many young men your age. The more concerning thing is the SGPT/ALT liver enzyme. It is about double the normal (usual normal is 10-40 IU/L). Liver inflammation from excess weight, medications, or alcohol intake are most common causes, but more serious hepatitis could be present. See your doctor:) Read more

I am 50 years old female, weight 118 lb, hight 5.2, my cholesterol levels LDL is 470 and my triglycerides levels 615. What do you advise to me.

Diet and meds: You may have a genetic component to your high lipids, you will need medications, you can start with 4000 mg of omega-3 fish oil a day, avoid cholesterol rich foods, eat foods that help lower your cholesterol level (fiber, oatmeal, soy beans, extra virgin olive oil, nuts, and fish rich in omega-3), make sure you cut simple carbohydrates (sugar, high fructose corn syrup) and get tested for diabetes.

I'm 21 years old and I have a very normal weight, but tests showed that I have a high blood cholesterol level, is it a normal thing? And what can I do

Seeyour Family Doc: Blood lipid levels can be a function of both genetic and environmental factors. Some people are genetically pre-disposed to elevated lipid levels, while others are just taking in too many lipids. It is best to talk with your family doc about this to determine cause and treatment. Read more

Cardiologist- cholesterol total 157mg, tryglycerides 78mg, HDL 41mg, LDL 100mg, vldl 16mg. Is this normal? 28 years old female.

Normal Lipid Levels: For a 26 years old female your numbers seem to be almost normal except your triglycerids are marginally elevated. Your total cholesterol is very desirable, HDL 41 though not bad can be better, the higher the better. Your LDL level at 100 is normal, we like it below 100.If you do not have any other risk factors like obesity, family history, smoking, diabetes and hypertension then you can live with with it.

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.

Okay for now: Follow these once you're off the isotretinoin. Taking this difficult medicine is a challenge but being acne-free is very important socially and professionally nowadays. Best wishes. Read more

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.

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! Read more

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.

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

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