... I just figured your LDL and it comes out to 2.2! The desired value is under 3.2. That is not a problem. Your stellar HDL offsets it. Many cardiologists only look at the TC and don't figure in each ratio. Then they order Statins. I know so many people who are on Statins who have great numbers. Did you see the actual plaque report on your arteries? I would ask for that just so... (4 replies)

... Hi, Your ratios are all good, under the suggested values for LDL, HDL, Trigs; therefore, why Statins? Many docs can be alarmists because they only look at the total cholesterol number, not the ratios, which are more important indicators. If you are prediabectic that is also not something to so worry about. There are supplements that can address this. Research may help to... (8 replies)
... Hi Matt, Here are some suggestions for alternative cholesterol lowering supplements: Red Yeast Rice (Nature's Plus has the best ingredient percentages) 2 = 1200 mg. at bedtime with a COQ10 supplement.. This will help to lower your LDL cholesterol Flush Niacin to raise your HDL. (has to be the flush variety). You must start off at a very low dose, like 50 mg and then... (5 replies)
... And don't let this doc bamboozle you into taking medication you may not need. I think the more research we do, the more knowledge we obtain, the more empowered we feel to be our own advocate in health matters. Best, Tess (13 replies)

... Did you consider just using these results as a motivation for improving your lifestyle/diet. It sounds as if you get lots of intense exercise but don't think your diet is good. Statins are amazing but they are drugs and doing without them is probably going to be better than taking them....if you can get the right blood result. I may not be the best responder as I did great on... (15 replies)
... I did read the book-and learned quite a bit. I'm in the middle of another book-Poisoned and have one waiting after that "How Statin Drugs Really Lower cholesterol" I think that statins can play a role in helping with someone who has cardiac issues....if that someone can tolerate the treatment. I'm also wondering however, if statins could play a role in doing harm in someone... (23 replies)

... I alternate drinking and non-drinking months...just my way of control. In teetotal months I get HDL's in the 30's. in drinking months in the high 40's or low 50's. The hospital I used (New York University) uses a 30 day dosing of 80 mg. atorvastatin in the belief that percutaneous procedures, with an intrusive wire etc, might disturb fragile plaques. It is thought that... (23 replies)

... after reading 8 or 9 books now.....I'm wondering if cholesterol is the "poison" we are being led to believe. In any case, no way are we getting the full story on statin research.

... Flush Niacin will work for increasing HDL. If you want to lower LDL you might consider Red Yeast Rice and CoQ10 supplements. However, the brand of RYR is important. You want one free of citrinin and standarized with a minimum of 1.5% monaclins. With this in mind, Nature's Plus is the best, IMO. I have definitely lowered my LDL cholesterol with this regime. I am now in the low... (23 replies)
