When I was 21 I was diagnosed as a high risk. I was only 21 and maybe 140lb, I'm a very thin guy, but my cholesterol and triglycerides were through the roof. I ate OK(for a college kid) and was very active, the doctor said to come back and if they were still high I'd have to go on meds, because it's probably heretitary. Well I didn't want to go on meds, so I changed my diet pretty drastically, I cut out all red meat, fast food, etc.

It's been about 7 years, I still weigh about the same, for I can't gain weight no matter how hard I try, but my levels are a matainable level and haven't had to go on meds, at least for the time being.

Everyone should get checked out because you never know.

My cholestestol is high. I don't have the numbers but I took butter out of my diet, cut down big time on my milkfat intake, and hope this does the trick.

Hmmm...I have no clue, but I did have bloodwork done a few months ago (for a supposed allergy). So the allergist looked at all my levels (they thought I migth be anemic), found out I wasn't, and never mentioned anything after that, so I assume I'm a-ok. Then again, the medical community has this stigma where they seem to not want to let me know anything about me. Had my knee x-rayed a few years back and the techniciona would NOT let me see it.

Me: Oooh, is that my x-ray?
Tech: Um...
Me: Can I see it? Is that my patella?
Tech: *hides photos* You can't see these.
Me: Yes, I can. It's my legal right. I'm of age, I have consent. My doctor said I could. Besides, I came in here a year ago and got to see my back x-rays then too.
Tech: *runs*


Damn medical community.

Anyway, hope you get everything under control. Take care.
