Hi,As you must be knowing normal serum cholesterol levels are <200 mg/dl. Anything beteen 200-250 is borderline. More than 250 is definitly high. Your serum cholesterol levels of 700 are definitely very high. In fact it is not only the serum cholesterol levels that are important, but LDL, VLDL, HDL and total lipid levels also. These vaues come under lipidogram. In this HDL is the good cholesterol, which should be high and rest are bad cholesterols and should be on the lower side. Any treatment of lowering cholesterol levels, takes a long time. It is a slow and steady process. You are taking crestor (rosuvastatin), which is a prescribed for decreasing cholesterol. This will take its effect slowly. You should get serial blood lipidograms done every three months to see the trend of values. Along with taking medicine, one should bring some changes in the lifestyle also. Here are some of the links which can guide you how to go about bringing change in your diet and lifestyle-

Hi, Yes, you are a high risk candidate for a heart attack. With so many medical problems you need to be under regular follow up with your doctor. Normally a benign cyst in the liver (if not very large) is left alone, unless it causes some problem. The cause of emphysema and the colon problem has to be properly daignosed and treated. As I said these problems have to be daignosed and treated properly.
Hi,I am happy to be of assistance if you have any further questions. In case you are satisfied with the reply, please ACCEPT it, a BONUS would be even better!
The risk of heart attack depends on multiple factors. High cholesterol levels is one of the risk factors. Some of them are-
If you have most of the above risk factors, then I would say you have a very high risk (7-8) on the scale of 10 for a heart attack. But if you have only high cholesterol then it would be 5-6 on the scale of 10. But these figures are not definite, as I told you a heart attack depends on multiple factors.
Hope the information helps.
