  1. I like how you said, “High cholesterol can be different for different people”. I recently had my cholesterol checked. My doctor said it was within normal range. Also, he said I had good blood pressure. How do you get high cholosterol?

    1. Your body naturally produces some of the bad cholesterol that can cause high cholesterol, but your cholesterol levels are also affected by things like your diet, how much you exercise, and if high cholesterol runs in your family. But you should definitely trust your doctor, who is more familiar with your lifestyle and medical history to fully understand what your numbers mean for you.
