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

No one can tell: but you have much less chances than others who have risk factors like obesity, smoking, heart disease, uncontrolled diabetes, etc... There are several factors in the equation, your only bailout is to lead a healthy life style. As for life expectancy, there are websites with calculators the give you an estimate, but no guarantee, best wishes ...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?

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 ?

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
