Re: Questions about most imp. things I should be doing..

Thank you ladies.. I'll read the intro for sure. I haven't had sugar of any kind since last Wed. .. cold turkey. The fear is bigger than the craving at this point. Have been eating totally clean.. mostly Dr. Ess. style. I have hardly eaten animal products for a couple months at least.. except of cou...

Questions about most imp. things I should be doing..

I have not been following a healthy enough diet and just had a 300 on my cholesterol..

Re: Struggling to see a silver lining

this is all good to read.. I had my freak out post a couple year's ago.. it gets much better. I made some changes.. but I flaked on the diet changes which I regret.

Re: Terrified.. Chol results

Katie .. so sorry .. some of this I don't understand.. myopathy.. Promethease .. 9P21 "Simvastatin, a lipidophilic statin, might be even AD protective, but I'm not one as I have a propensity for myopathy. Check Promethease for the 9P21 cardiac genetic risks, statin sensitivity and statin myopat...

Re: Prof. Ken Sikaris: Cholesterol - When to Worry (sdLDL info)

wow.. going back and looking at all these numbers from 3 years ago where I got a more detailed blood panel.. I have high Lp(a) which is indicator of heart event .. he also says there's nothing that can be done about Lp(a).. is this more common in 4/4's?
