Is it okay for a high cholesterol patient to take cow’s milk?

Q: I have high level of LDL cholesterol, which is 150. I understand that buffalo milk increases the cholesterol. Is it okay for me to take cow milk?

A:It's perfectly all right, but since you have high cholesterol, please have skimmed cow milk. You can buy this readymade in the form of tetra packs or you could skim it yourself at home by boiling the milk and refrigerating it overnight and removing all the cream that collects on top in the morning. Use this milk to prepare curd, paneer, etc.
