Hello doctor,

Your weight is on the higher side which is one of the reasons for high cholesterol.

Here are a few nutritional tips:

  1. Stop consuming packed and processed foods like bakery and confectionary items.
  2. If you take non-vegetarian foods, minimize it.
  3. Reduce the intake of all milk products. Cholesterol is high in all animal foods including milk.
  4. Increase intake of fruits and raw vegetables, at least three servings a day before three main meals. This will help you in reducing weight and cholesterol.

Please feel free to contact me again for any further help.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
