High Cholesterol In Teens

by Stacy
(Virginia)

Hi, a month ago my mother took me to the doctor for an annual check up. The doctor took a blood sample to measure my Cholesterol, since my father suffers from it.


Yesterday the tests came back really high. I my self am not overweight, in fact I barely make it to the 50% of my age average. I know that this is hereditary, because I barely eat any meat.

Is there a work out, or a diet I should go on, to help lower my cholesterol? I am very concerned because one of my life goals is to live a long, happy, healthy life.

Thanks,
Stacy

Yeah, I have a similar prob - I'm not a teen (27 actually), but I exercise every day 'cept Sundays, incl jogging and weights, eat meat about once a month, and I'm really skinny/slender, but my cholesterol results just came back quite high too. My dad has heart probs, and high cholesterol too, so that's probably it - anybody with some advice though, as it came as quite a shock!
