High cholesterol, 24 year olds.Need advise
Hello everyone, Just got my test results and I am worried as hell.
Total Cholestérol is 6.8 or 262
HDL is 48
I am 24 years old turning 25. I am overweight, not fat, and to be honest, I don’t exercise, I do not smoke but in the last 6 months, I have been drinking heavily. Not every single day but around 5 days a week.
I did a test 6 months ago and my total cholesterol was 6.3 and. I wasn’t drinking as much. Can alcohol affect my cholesterol and results significantly, I am very worried I am way too young for this. My father does have cholesterol maybe it might be genetic but at 24??
Please advise me on what to do.
