Q&A Cholesterol - High Cholesterol Level in younger Age

Q: I am still young do I have to be worried about my cholesterol level?

A: Although it is not common for the younger people to have a high cholesterol level, for the most people, it's their lifestyle when they were young (such as eating lots of junk food, smoking etc) that help contribute to have cholesterol problems when they are older. It's better to adapt a healthy lifestyle and make it a habit when we were young therefore it will be easier to lower the cholesterol level when we were old.

There's a condition for young person to have a high cholesterol level which is called Familial Hypercholesterolemia, which is a condition where the liver produce cholesterol more than normal.
