Any ideas here?
Seriously, I am not about to give up butter, ice cream - dairy, really. Although I'm willing to cut that down a bit...
What else causes high cholesterol though? Does sugar to that, like in soda pop? Or is that a different type of problem, nothing to do with cholesterol?

My mom and brother both have high cholesterol.  Mine has always been over 300, the last time I got it checked, it was 325 .
But after 2 years of really watching the labels on the foods, it didn't go down much, so now I'm taking some sort of pill.  I have to go get it checked next month, to see if it's lowered yet.

Actually, I don't really care that much, lol. I got lab results from my recent doctor visit and this was the first time I'd ever received cholesterol results - they may have measured that before, but I wouldn't know about it, lol. Anyway, I read that LDL ("bad") cholesterol should be below 100 (a new number, it used to be higher), and that HDL ("good") cholesterol should be above 40, ideally over 60. Well, my LDL was 225 and my HDL was 42.
I have no idea if these are normal numbers for my family, as I don't think anyone has had their cholesterol checked. No wait, my brother has to get regular doctor check-ups, I'm sure they've checked that before...but I have no idea what his numbers are.
Anyway, I don't have a problem with eating certain types of foods that I may not be eating currently, but I'm not sure what that might be, lol. I know what they tell you to NOT eat, but I'm thinking there should be some things that are good for you (besides salmon, haha).
