I am 24 years old.. My cholestrol level is 208.
My blood pressure is normal and i am not a diabetic. Is this cholestrol level ok? If not please suggest natural ways to reduce the same.
It's not that high, 200 is the border. First make sure u drink lots of water, have oatmeal in the morning n even for snack time. Fruits and vegetables are essentials for your new diet. Avoid things high in sodium n sugar, try yogurts like Activia, very healthy. If you like cereals make sure they all have oats and honey, it helps reduce the high cholesterol. Trust me, I had 217 n the doctor told me it was a bit high but not that dangerous, it turns dangerous when u don't take care of it in time. I change my diet just the way I suggest u to do, after 6 weeks I went back for blood test n it dropped to 197, I was pleased and I'm 43.
