Cholesterol #'s

Posted By Heather on February 22, 1999 at 13:48:18:







I Had blood work done and the nurse called back and said I had high cholesterol. She wanted to make me an appointment to see a lipid doctor to talk over my options. My Numbers are 154 LDL and 72.3 HDL. I am only 25 years old, 5`5 110 pounds with tachycardia and high Bp upon standing. I don't work out any more due to the tachycardia(I know i should) My mother died of an arrythemia due to a 90% block in one cornary artery at 46(but she was overweight)  and her brother had a quadrupal bypass at 54. How concerned should i be. Should someone my age be put on cholesterol lowering drugs. I don't really watch what I eat and don't put on weight. i thought weight and cholesterol went together. Are there any medicines that may raise you cholesterol. I take nadolol, clonidine and flovent. I am not currently taking the clonidine but was taking it when the blood work was done. I am hoping to have children some day I am already concerned about the Bp upon standing do I also have to worry about the cholesterol during pregnancy. Thank you
Heather
