Everytime I go to the doctor for my annual, I always find myself having high cholesterol level although I am not overweight. Surely, someone out there can relate to this experience. Do you have any tips to reducing/controlling cholesterol sans medication?

Pareho lang tayo papable, mataas rin ang cholesterol level ko and my doctor told me na do ko raw kailangan ng gamot for that. Exercise lang and diet lang daw katapat niyan. :)

Exercise ang katapat nyan with a sensible diet regimen. I don't know my cholesterol level right now, pero after almost a year of lay-off my bp shot up to 140/90 last October, so I got back to working out and started playing badminton and jogging last December. BP is now at 120/80 when I made my check-up yesterday, and this without any mediciation to control my BP.

related but true...


believe it or not, my cholesterol level was 310 five years ago. by then, i was already experiencing so many bad symptoms like dizziness, shortness of breath, etc.... the company doctor said that i will be dead 5 years because of stroke or cardiac arrest. my weight back then was around 240 pounds and my waistline then was 41", my resting heart rate was 130 bpm. stress was a daily routine because of my line of work. and i smoke a pack of cigarettes. in short, i need to prepare my own coffin already. worst, i am only 27 years old.

last year, during my APE, my cholesterol level was 170, my weight is 180 pounds, my waistline is 34". stopped smoking and my resting heart rate is 82 bpm. my secret?


a) really sensible diet as what mr. zagato mentioned;
B) daily exercise regimen (combination of cardio and weights, 5x/week)
c) fiber.... as much as possible, take oats daily... nakakasuka, pero ayus....
d) a cup of green tea twice a day


hope this helps.

Yeah, always had a cholesterol level problem even while in college...

Basically you really need regular exercise, aerobic type is the better one tho I just lift weights instead... plus on the diet side you really have to sacrifice a little...

Also been taking this fiber supplement called C-lium, said its supposed to help lower chlolesterol, dunno if thats true but waste elimination is sure a breeze now. :lol:

Thanks to all your responses... Sabi ko na hindi ako nag-iisa sa problem kong ito eh. I have been taking a lot of food high in fiber like oatmeal for breakfast and whole wheat bread for dinner. Ang kulang ko na lang talaga is exercise. Anyway, sabi ng doctor ko last year typical daw talaga sa Pinoy ang high cholesterol because of our food.

Having high cholesterol levels in the blood doesn't necessarily mean obesity. There are obese person with low cholesterol levels in the blood. Tips? just avoid (or take it in moderation) foods of animal origin, such as beef, eggs, chicken, and dairy products....eating (or indulging!) too many of those causes high cholesterol or saturated fat in the blood. Exercise can be an adjunct but exercise doesn't directly lowers cholesterol.....nag-e-exercise ka nga palagi madami ka naman kumain ng saturated fats diba? useless din. Controlled diet is the best adjunct...low fat versions of dairy products are okay in moderation, but cutting out cheese, eggs, beef, pork, and butter is favourable. Sans medication....chromium picolate found in some vitamin supplement has been found to lower cholesterol and so is garlic.

Oatmeal, green tea tska exercise lang katapat nyan! ;) But of course you need to be wary of your diet rin. Like before eating something, read the label.. nakaindicate naman dun how much cholesterol meron yung food na yun. Avoid fat rin... lean meat na lang (well, if you can't avoid eating meat) tska yun matatamis, bawal din yun. Bawal din ang milk.. kung kaya mong inumin yun low fat, yun na lang (pero sabi kse di raw masarap yun low fat eh).

Eto pinakamalungkot... bawal uminom ng beer! Oh well of course, everything in moderation.. pero kung problem na talaga ang cholesterol level mo, I would suggest you avoid drinking beer muna.

Tara badminton tayo nila google. :P

anaheim, m.d.

so i suppose you're really a doctor? if you are i want to ask you about chromium picol. I know GNC sells them but on the web there were varied reports of its usefulness or its uselessness, plus some said it was carciogenic.

i don't what to believe. would appreicate your input/s.

thanks.

Regular Exercise and Diet pa rin ang best bet to reduce cholesterol. Yuin nga lang pag sobrang taas na, no choice na cguro but to take medication na.

Is age also a factor? My dad's cholesterol is on the high side (although nasa normal zone pa siya) but he doesn't drink, doesn't eat fried food (mas healthy pa siya kumain sa akin <_<) and exercises almost every day (aerobic). He's pretty lean and fit for someone his age. He loves seafood though. What sorts of foods should you eat to help lower your cholesterol level? :)

Resistance Training Guidelines
For this month, we will give you the some important resistance training guidelines.
Perform 5 to 10 exercises that train the major muscle groups like the back. legs, chest and shoulders.
Workouts should be kept at 45 minutes or shorter. Drop out rates are frequent with long workouts (e.g. more than an hour).
Favour multi-joint exercises (aka compound exercises like squats, bench press etc.) which utilise more muscles with fewer exercises
Begin with a 5-10 minutes general warm-up like brisk walking or cycling. This is followed by the stretching of the muscles and connective tissues.
Perform one to three set of 8 to 12 repetitions to the point of positive failure. If you are engaging in more serious training with heavy poundage, always perform warm-up 1-2 sets of the same exercise with a lighter weight first. This will reduce the risk of getting yourself injured and prepare your mind and muscles for the heavier load that follows
A workout routine can be structured to train the whole body in the same session or you can split the body-parts (e.g. chest and back together) into separate sessions.
Exercise 2-3 days per week on non-consecutive days. More rest days may be necessary if you are training hard.
Perform all the exercises through a full range of motion and in a controlled fashion.
Exhale when you perform positive action (e.g. lifting action when doing curls or pulling action when doing pull-down exercise) and inhale when you return the load to the starting position.
Training with a partner can be beneficial for motivation and assistance.
Training is just part of the equation, the other areas you must not neglect are the rest and proper nutrition.

yes, makakatulong sya, pero hindi sya ganung kabilis. kung baga gradual lang. but if you wanna go natural, then oatmeal is the best.
