Cholesterol

Hi Doc,

I went for a fasting Lipid profile and the results were Overall Cholesterol 6.1, tryglycerides 2.7 and bad Cholesterol 3.7, Good cholesterol 1.2 - Do you think Diet can fix this or should I take Statins?

Blood pressure and all other tests were fine.

Regards
George

You will have to treat your high cholesterol with medication, a healty balanced diet and regular exercise. The test can be repeated after three months, to determine if you still need treatment. Ask your doctor if you are suffering from metabolic syndrome.
