Default cholesterol countdown Women's cholesterol levels are getting higher

Maybe your dear old dad isn't the only one who should use egg whites in his omelette. According to an analysis of health data on 5,000 patients in the journal Circulation, cholesterol levels rose significantly in women ages 25 to 34 between 1995 and 2002, even though they've plummeted among older adults in the past 20 years. Researchers believe that about 30 percent of 25- to 34-year-old women now have total cholesterol numbers above "borderline high-risk" levels, but they aren't sure why. "The use of medication to lower cholesterol is almost nonexistent for this age group, who may not perceive the risk of high cholesterol," says lead study author Donna Arnett, Ph.D. Get yours checked. If it's higher than 200, talk to your doctor about taking steps to lower it, such as improving your diet, exercising more, or taking medication.
