Anyone here have high cholesterol???
Advertisements [?]
Just found out today my overall level is 243 and my triglycerides are 305 (the upper limit on that is 149!!!).

Since I was 18, I've had doctors griping at me about it, but it bothers me now (I am 33).

I'm a non-smoker, have LOW blood pressure, am in pretty decent health. My grandmother always had high cholesterol and had a heart attack at 42. She had to have artificial heart valves put in and she ended up dying of heart disease, so I know I have to take this seriously.

They told me lay off saturated fat and cholesterol as much as possible, stop blowing off my workouts so much and come back in six weeks to check it again.

Sound like good advice? I've been googling this on the internet. Planning on powerwalking four times a week.
