My cholesterol and triglyceride levels are elevated. But, they were the same in my previous checkup reports too. I am a bit reluctant to take medication because of the side effects. My father has both cardiac and diabetic issues. I am doing exercise regularly and my intake of sugar is also under control. I do not smoke, but drink 3 pegs only on Saturdays. Can you please let me know why my cholesterol levels are still high? Is it too high to take medicines? Is there any side effect with the medicines? What precaution do I need to take in my lifestyle? I know that the long-term elevated levels of cholesterol is risky. Please help me.
