My 3 yr old DD has high cholesterol!

I just got off the phone with my pediatrician, my dd lab results came in and her fasting total cholesterol is 333. Let me say she is 37 in and 32 lbs, so not obese, she eats tons of fruits and veggies, and drinks 2% milk. My husband also has hereditary high cholesterol so we already stick to a low fat, low cholesterol diet. Does anyone else have a child with hereditary high cholesterol? Any advice would be helpful!

We do not. What recommendations has the pedi given you? Have you been referred to a dietician or nutrionist?

Depends on the exact numbers. I've heard and done a little reading about babies and toddlers needing high cholesterol and fats for brain development. There are a lot of things we probably do different than you. Dh had high cholesterol and we successfully got it down and it stayed down when we went from using ground turkey to grassfed beef and real butter.

thats a bit rude of a response. 

OP said her child is not overweight and eats healthy. Sometimes medical things happen and are hereditary and we cannot help it despite our best efforts...


OP keep your chin up. Ask your pedi for any help they can offer.

Yikes! I hope your pedi offered recommendations for a dietician bc I'm sure her cholesterol needs are going to be different from that if an adult!

My kids have never had a cholesterol check. I dont do low fat anything. Full fat and healthy fats are actually much healthier. Id say increase her healthy fats and maybe ditch things alltogether with the unhealthy fats. Also im goimg to guess at her age and weight/height its the hereditary issue. Dd is 2 and 36" 26#. But she is very slim. Your dd sounds about avg

Is you or your hub's values high? There is a genetic component.
