Which vitamins and supplements are good for people who has high cholesterol and heart problems in the family?
Depends. It depends on what part of your cholesterol panel is high: fish oil, specifically dha and epa, have been shown to reduce triglycerides. They do not lower ldl, nor do they raise the HDL if the triglycerides are not elevated. Dha and epa may help reduce the risk of a second heart attack, but they haven't been shown to prevent the 1st one. Most vip: all fish oils have variable amounts of dha/epa.
Fish Oil. Fish oil since it helps decrease triglycerides. And vitamin d3 since it reduces vascular calcification.
I am having heart problems. My doctor told me a while ago I had high cholesterol and my heart has been hurting for a couple days now. What should I do?
Check up. This does not sound like a heart issue, but you should go get it checked out by your doctor. High cholesterol is a risk factor, like having a family history of heart problems, or getting older. It is not a sign of a heart condition. Pain in your chest can be caused by many things and you will need to give you doctor more information and have an exam to know what the cause is. Read more...
