Question: I Cut Out Almost All Cholesterol From My Diet, Yet My Cholesterol Is Still High. How Can This Be?
Answer: Even if you are on a good diet, you can still have a high cholesterol if you're overweight, or if you're diabetic.
You can also have a high cholesterol if you're none of those, because sometimes our bodies metabolize cholesterol differently. For instance, the liver's involved in making cholesterol and things like that, so you may have a high cholesterol due to your individual body metabolism, even though you're on a strict diet.
