My Cholesterol is 436 mg/dL and LDL is 329 mg/dL. My mother was freaked out, she's a doctor by the way, and said I have to change my diet immediately there're too much "meat and eggs" in my diet.
Your cholesterol and LDL is high.
Your body produce about 70% of your cholesterol. That means that high total cholesterol reading is more than likely genetic.
Intake of saturated fats is usually associated with high LDL reading. Thus, cutting back on saturated fats should improve your LDL.
Research show that diet/reducing you fat intake decrease choleserol reading by about 10%.
Research show that aerobic exercise is a bit more effective in reducing total cholesterol than diet. Aerobic exercise increases your HDL.
"Exercise is very important in controlling cholesterol levels. Not only does total and LDL cholesterol tend to decrease with activity, but HDL cholesterol increases." http://healthcenter.indiana.edu/departm ... terol.html
Fiber is also shown to decrease cholesterol. http://www.thedietchannel.com/Fiber-and ... sterol.htm
Nician (a B Vitamin), fish oils and other supplements are show to decrease cholesterol.
However, you reading is so high that it may require medication.
So here're my questions. Am I eating too much saturated fat?
Good question. How much saturated fat are you eating? Pull out a nutrition book and do your home work.
Considering the blood test result it is way too much.
Again, high total cholesterol readings are genetic. Diet plays a minor role.
