Cholesterol

Hi there Doc
We all have been tested at work for our sugar levels cholesterol and blood pressure. All are fine but my cholesterol is a bit high they said. It shows 7 on the machine. If this is the case how can I reduce this drasticly?

Hallo Boet
Please do a fasting Lipogram test first - as you need to determine the levels on an empty stomach. Food has an influence on the cholesterol levels. You can eat a low fat low GI diet to reduce cholesterol but often it is hereditary and medication may be needed.
