exercise. For instance, the
research shows that thinner
people who exercise general-
ly have higher HDL levels
(the good kind) than fat peo-
ple who don't exercise.
"We still need to be prudent
about balancing our life
style," Lucas states. "We
know that food affects
cholesterol levels for some, so
we do have to watch our fat
intake. But we also need to be
exercising, not smoking, and
managing our stress."
New studies do suggest that
HDL may be a better predic-
tor of heart disease than is
total cholesterol. Physicians

stress that even moderate
amounts of aerobic exercise
can raise HDL and lower the
risk of coronary artery
, disease.
James Maciejko, Ph.D.,
director of the Lipid Clinic at
Sinai Hospital, attended the
annual meeting of the
American Heart Association
held in New Orleans this past
November. He reports that
heart disease experts issued
an 18-page statement clearly
relating elevated blood
cholesterol to coronary heart
disease.
The Lipid Clinic at Sinai is
designed to diagnose
cholesterol levels and to
establish progams for in-
dividuals who need to lower
their cholesterol levels.
"Physicians are experimen-
ting with ways to initiate new
drug development projects
that might raise a person's
HDL number as a way of con-
trolling higher blood
cholesterol levels," reports
Maciejko, who believes that
children should hae their
total cholesterol evaluated as
early as age two.
"We're not likely to use
drugs to bring down a
cholesterol level of a child
because cholesterol is still
needed for building cell
tissue," • Maciejko explains.
"However, if children do have
a high cholesterol count, we
generally put them on an ex-
ercise program and keep
them active to prevent them
from being overweight. The
research indicates that
children with familial hyper-
cholesterolemia are at
greater risk of having heart
attacks at an early age — in
their late 30s and early 40s:
Maciejko says that the best
way to bring up healthy
children is to impress upon
them the urgency of not
smoking and the importance
of good eating habits as well
as regularly participating in
physicial activity. He also ad-
vises adults to watch what
you eat, take a walk after din-
ner, and if your cholesterol

level reaches over 200, go to
a physician for evaluation.
"You don't have to turn your
life upside down to get your
cholesterol levels down," com-
ments Gail Posner, a
registered dietician with a
private practice in Southfield.
"You should however, be
avoiding saturated fats, exer-
cising, and keeping trim."
In addition to working with
individuals, Posner takes
groups to grocery stores,
teaching them what kinds of
foods to look for and how to
read labels so that they can
select the right stuff for a
healthy diet.
"For example, people have
to understand that there's no

legal definition for the term
"lite," Posner explains. "Lite
could mean 60 calories or 4
calories. And "no cholesterol"-
doesn't mean there's no fat in
the product. Peanut butter
doesn't contain cholesterol
but it does have fat, and the
body treats saturated fat just
like cholesterol."
Posner advises her clients
to be cheese smart by pur-
chasing cheese that's made
from skin or nonfat milk and
to use nonfat yogurt to
replace sour cream. She also
says that the new nutritional
guidelines recommend four
eggs per week — up from
three — and that there's no
law against eating meat as
long as the portions are pru-
dent and the beef is lean.
A decade ago, physicians
weren't concerned about your
cholesterol level until it top-
ped 300 and no one paid any
attention to your LDL's and
HDL's. That was before the
results from some of the long-
termed studies demonstrated
that as cholesterol levels in-
crease, so does your chance for
heart disease. However, the
question of numbers is too in-
dividualized to make a simple
statement that anyone with
an LDL level over such and
such number should seek
treatment.
The approach to treatment
outlined by the National
Cholesterol Education Pro-
gram, however, seems
cautious and sound. Certain-
ly, all of us need to match the
recommendations of the
