    Re: why does my 13 year old have high cholesterol

    First, exactly how do you define high cholesterol? Please provide cholesterol numbers. You 13 year old may, in fact, not have high cholesterol.

    But if he does, it's likely because his liver produces too much... that is the issue with most folks of any age.

    How is the health of this younster? WHat is the body Mass Index...? Do he exercise and participate in sports?
