Changing food habits
Venessawalsh posted:
You seem to be suffering from multiple diseases. Have you tried controlling your food to reduce symptoms? Food can really help in reducing cholestrol, diabetes as well as joint pains.

Why don't you try out food such as oatmeal, apples, kidney beans, peaches, prunes, bananas and broccoli which reduces cholesterol absorption from the intestines which also works in reducing joint pains. Try to limit your consumption of foods such as organ meats and processed meats which works in increasing the cholestrol levels and contributes to joint pains as well.
You can try consuming omega-3 fatty acids which are found in fish that ease joint inflammation that can have a cholesterol-lowering effect as well. Fortified food are also great while walnuts and almonds are supposed to lower the bad cholestrol levels.
I have also heard about stem cell therapy giving great relief for orthopedic conditions. I've heard of a clinic in Boca Ranton who provides this treatment really effectively, maybe it is another option you can try out.

Wish you good health!
