..I had a total cholesterol of 290 at one point. Now I am a marathon runner and a vegan and STILL had this reading...
There are statin drugs that can be rx's but I get a BAD reaction from them... is that what happens to you too?
I excluded ALL animal fat products and added ground flax seed and flax seed oil to my foods and smoothies EVERY DAY without fail..I made sure my colon was good and clean by eating LOTS of fresh fruits and veggies and whole grains and I exercise..in 6 months I got m total down to 160!!! Also. I added omega fatty acids, used olive oil on everything I would have used butter on, and BINGO..lower cholesterol!! I know it sounds drastic but so is a stroke... so talk to your Dr about diet change and exersise if you haven't already..k?
Hope this helped???

My cholesterol level was 35 points too high. My doctor prescribed Lipitor 20 mg. That sounds high...
