I'm a very healthy young adult that exercises and eats well, but my cholesterol is very high. I had bloodwork done recently and it was 240; my LDL was elevated as well. My LDL to HDL ratio was normal, however. Also, my monocyte count was abnormally low. I've been suffering from terrible headaches every day for about 8 months. I have to take ibuprofen in order to funtion normally, or else I can't go through the day. My doctor originally thought it was a problem with my thyroid glands, but the tests came out normal. I don't know what is going on!
