Okay Ski. I'm upping it to TWO tablespoons, morning and night. It seems it should be one of the more innocuous ways to decrease my cholesterol. I use the Organic India Psyllium.

Good luck, rep. And be very careful who you listen to, including me.


Add me to the list of suspects to be wary of ;) As Martha and I learned at our recent NYC conference, even the experts are at a complete loss as to how to handle dietary fat/lipid lowering pharmacology recommendations for E4 carriers. Be highly skeptical of anyone who has definitive answers; N=1 rules.

Julie and Martha - Got ya. Who the heck knows what to do with a case like mine? As I bemoan to my husband - "Why can't it ever be easy?" I and my children have had very weird health issues. It's never the norm and they are never easily solved.
I can't wait to meet with my lipidologist. I just wish it were sooner and that I had more than half an hour of his time. I do suppose he will prescribe Zetia and some statin. I'll be very interested to hear what he has to say about diet.
