Question

Cholesterol - LDL Level

I went for a cholesterol test. The results showed that my LDL level was 3.4 and HDL was 1.8. Over the last year I noticed that my memory is getting bad. Can a high LDL level be the cause of this.

Hallo Dee
Not really. Causes of bad memory could be:
Side effects of medication (especially the benzodiasepines like valium)
dehydration
thyroid problems
Depression or anxiety
mini - strokes in the brain
