    Just got blood test results from dietitian.

    Everything hunky dory, but cholesterol high..:cry:

    Not recommending medication, but obviously losing the weight will help.

    I am definitely NOT going to give up. I have a family and I am not going to give them reason to worry.:)

    Anyone with same probs?

    Ive got high cholestorol (im on simvastatin) as well as diabetes so I also have more than enough reason to keep going!!

    I've already reduced my diabetes medication due to healthier eating, no reason why I can't do that with the cholestorol too :eek:)

    Good luck,

    my old man (who is 41) has high cholesterol and is on tablets, which are basically keeping him alive.

    My grandad (his dad) died from a heart attack when he was 40

    there's a history of it for the men in my family so I probably have/will get it when I'm older :|

    While it's true that family history is a known risk factor for heart disease, the major risk factors are still those that you can influence such as smoking, diet, and high blood pressure.
