How high is cholesterol of 341?



Is that like insane high or just high? I guess what I'm asking is, should I worry at all?

It is fairly high but I wouldn't be overly concerned until you know what your risk ratio is. Some people have high "overall" cholesterol as you do but they have very high good cholesterol so a fairly low risk ratio.

I would definitely speak with your doctor to find out what your good HDL cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol are along with your triglycerides and ask him what your risk ratio is.

If you need treatment he would be recommending a course of action for you. I suspect you do need some kind of intervention but it could be dietary and exercise, depending on exactly what your other numbers are, genetic factors and your age.

I wouldn't be overly concerned but would definitely see the doctor asap.
That's pretty high, I'd think, because 200 is considered high.
I once knew a man who had about 1600ish but that guys a nut
its pretty high. 200 or less is desirable. I would work on diet and exercise to lower it. try oatmeal or cheerios.
I would be real worried if mine was that high. Try to keep it under 200, mine is 185 and I watch it.....
That is very high, and I suggest you talk to your doctor about putting you on a Statin medication like Zocor or Lipitor. At 341, your LDL is very high and your blood also contains high levels of triglycerides, making your blood very fatty like chicken soup. You should change your diet and stop eating unhealthy foods that are aggravating your cholesterol problem.
