Hi @cholesterolgal thank you for your question! This is true to an extent, because there are many types of cholesterol - some are good and some are bad. More good cholesterol is good for heart health, and a young healthy person can have sufficient amounts by consuming healthy food and natural sources such as salmon. A GP may recommend certain dietary supplements if your good cholesterol levels are low depending on your cholesterol profile. This is a detailed discussion that needs to be tailored to the individual, and is best to have with your GP. Conversely for bad cholesterol - less is better. This can be achieved through exercise and eating healthy like avoiding friend/oily foods, and reducing animal fat intake. Again, this a detailed discussion best to have with your GP in-person. Hope this helps! If you have any further questions or would like to go through your own cholesterol results, feel free to connect with me via the DoctorWorld application for a teleconsultation.
