I am suffering from high cholesterol problem since three four years. Trygercide was 250 four years back and then I started medicines like z lip f and abana. After 6 month it was 135. I gave up medicine. After checking a few months, it was again crossed 300. And the ratio of bad and good cholesterol is also very bad. Now it is 365. I would like to ask the reason behind. Because I make walk and exercises regularly since my childhood. My age is 50, height is 5.6. Weight 70 kg male. Slim build. I take very less oily food. Likes fruits and uses saffola, olive oils in my meals. Pl suggest how can reduce it and why it is increasing.

high cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, take green veg., whole grain. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
