First thing there should be done is to visit your doctor and check blood with cholesterol test. That is very simple, painless procedure which you should do each year since you are over 40 years old. As you said, there is possibility that you have high cholesterol because of genes. But it’s not just that what is important for cholesterol level. Our diet and lifestyle are also causes for high cholesterol. What we can’t change are genes, but we can change our diet and lifestyle. If you have high cholesterol there are few ways to lower it. Reducing your total fat intake is one important thing, then eliminating your consumption of saturated fat and increasing your consumption of soluble fiber. Unprocessed plant foods like vegetable is, dried beans, lentils, fruit and oats are sources of soluble fibers that helps us to lower cholesterol. Stop smoking and taking regular exercise will also help you lower your cholesterol.

Hi All,



If you would like an alternative to fish oil, have you considered hemp seed oil?



Hemp seed oil is an excellent source of two essential fatty acids which our bodies require (plus it also contains omega 9).



As you may know, the correct intake of Omega-6 and Omega-3, also found in fish oil, is associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease



Compared with other culinary oils hemp seed oil is also low in saturated fatty acids. Current national and international dietary recommendations for the prevention of cardiovascular disease recommend decreasing the intake of saturated fatty acids in order to lower blood cholesterol concentrations



If you want to find out more about the nutritional attributes of cold pressed Hemp Seed Oil, a recent study by Professor Tom Sanders and Dr Fiona Lewis of the Nutritional Sciences Division at King’s College, London can be found here: goodwebsite.co.uk/kingsreport.pdf



The main take out is probably that even when consumed in small amounts (10ml) per day it will make a substantial contribution to the intake of essential fatty acids which are required for health.





All the best!



Chris

I am 23 and recently had a cholesterol level total of 202. So of course, being a woman, and personally neurotic, I freaked out. In doing some research, I have found that the important thing to note about cholesterol tests at a young age, is that it is basically a snapshot of the weeks prior to the test. If your diet consists of high fat/high cholesterol food (I love cheese and eggs) then you're cholesterol levels will be higher. Obviously, monitor the amount of "good cholesterol" foods (cheese and eggs) because their can be too much of a good thing. Also, monitor your cholesterol every year if you have a family history of heart problems/ high cholesterol (like mine). So, cut back on animal proteins, eat cholesterol-high foods in moderation and exercise! If you have a desk job (like me), then get up and move around (it is recommended that one walk 10,000 steps a day) and get your heart rate up! Hope this helps.
