When I found out I had high cholesterol ~ over 400 my doctor put me on Lipitor. My goal is to hopefully get off the Lipitor. I'm doing my part with diet and exercise ~ but if it's not enough because of genetics I'll stay on the Lipitor. Statin vs a stroke seems like a no brainer to me. I have had no ill effects to date.

I eat tuna salad daily with vegan mayo~ ground flax for extra omega 3's and salad greens. I also drink NF keifer. I use grapeseed oil along with olive oil.

My cholesterol has dropped to under 150.

Use common sense and if your doctor isn't listening or answering your questions ~ find a new one!
