I'm not really in a position to make a diagnostic judgement on your cholesterol. As far as I am aware, the explanation for your elevated cholesterol (hyperlipidaemia) could be related to a number of factors. What is important are two things. First you needs to take all the necessary steps to resolve your eating disorder, as your current dietary practices are likely complicating your body chemistry status. Second, I suggest you approach your GP or an endocrinologist and have it investigated whether you would require medication ( most commonly Statins) to redue your cholesterol. However, there are some dietary changes that could reducee your cholesterol levels. A number of my patients have found success using Niacin B3 and Red Yeast Rice as a less invasive way of correcting cholesterol. However, I must stress that you should speak to a medical doctor for advice in is regard.
