Why is My Cholesterol So High?

What are the best supplements to lower cholesterol?
I am a 27 year old male, and I just got the results back on my cholesterol test.
I am concerned because I have been watching what I eat for a long time ( like 8 years+I don't eat alot of junk)or consume high fat foods.no fast food..only Subway... and I take E, C, and a multivtamin on a daily basis. I am not overweight (I am 5'9, 165)

My cholesterol level was 202.
They were slightly concerned that my LDL was signfiicant higher than the HDL.
I think my LDL level was somewhere around 140.
And this was with all of those preventive measures I thought I was taking.
Would consuming a few drinks the night before have any affect on the test?

The reason I am concerned is heart disease runs on my dad's side of the family, and I don't want to wait until I get older to start taking preventive measures.

Jim

Hello
I lowered my bad cholestrol 30 points in one month.....I take a tablespoon of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and a half cup of grape juice......everynight.
Hope it works for you.

Pittguy

There is a wealth of info on the High Cholesterol Healthboard - have a look. It could be worth putting your question on there as there are a lot of people who have gone into these issues in detail on there.

Good luck.
