Our expert says:
High Cholesterol does not have specific symptoms and is often a "silent" disease. It is often genetic (hereditary) even if you eat healthy and are not overweight. Your levels are too high and you are at risk for heart disease and strokes. Look at http://cholesterol.about.com/od/prevention/u/prevention.htm#s4
If your cholesterol does not come down on diet after 3 months, you may need to take a cholesterol lowering medication like Crestor longterm.
Your Cholesterol test will show which types of cholesterol need attention - discuss with your doctor.
