"Santan that includes foods of fat, there is oil.When cooked with egg or meat, automatic fat increases," explained Head of Endocrine Metabolic Division of Internal Medicine Department FKUI-RSCM, dr Em Yunir, SpPD-KEMD, in press conference and written On Thursday (25/09/2014).
Therefore, he advocated restricting the processing of coconut milk with meat if it did not want cholesterol levels to be very high. Unfortunately, people are accustomed to the menu processing with such a combination, so no wonder the cholesterol level was fast rising.
"Often like cooking chicken curry, it's so chicken meat with skin, this is very high fat If you want to combine coconut milk with vegetables, such as vegetable cook lodeh," said Dr. Yunir.
If you still want to cook coconut milk with meat, then Dr. Yunir advise you to also provide a companion menu that can balance the high fat. For example by providing also high-fiber foods such as vegetables and fruits are high in antioxidants.
Apples for example, you are advised to consume them with skin. Because the highest antioxidant content mentioned Dr. Yunir is in the skin of certain fruits. In addition to apples, fruit that can be a choice of wine, pears and strawberries.
After that, do not forget also to compensate for high fat intake with exercise to burn excess calories. Although it seems trivial, adding activities such as preferring to walk or if possible exercise, can have a significant impact on cholesterol.

If you have been given a special drug high cholesterol, dr Yunir ordered to always drink routine and do not stop. Cholesterol drugs not only work for the day in which they are drunk, but must be routine and cumulative. If someone drinks regularly, then cholesterol can go down slowly.
"Already eat a lot and continue to take medicine is useless, do not have to drink at all," he said.
