Good article. While my cholesterol results have been really good, my doctor recommended meds due to my age and family history. I'm have a few more test done before I agree to take statins

Speaking as a heart attack survivor who had just had her cholesterol tested and told it was fine.....I listened to my cardiologist and changed the statin I was on. Now my cardiologist has me on 80 mg of lipitor to keep my LDL's below 70 which is the current recommendation for those with heart disease.
Lots of good tips here but more current advice exists.

I have been very blessed to be able to bring my numbers(quite high) down over the years naturally. Would not go on meds. Tried a little, it came down a little. Kept trying harder till really have changed way I eat as well as exercise and losing weight. Last check was only six over the lowest number and still was told to get on meds. My HDL was 59 and tri was 108. Seriously!!!!? I don't need the side effects or damage somewhere else in my body due to it!
