[QUOTE=Dave56789]I know about exercise and changing diet and fish oils. What are some other ways to lower cholesterol levels naturally? My total cholesterol is 250 - not extremely high, but I want to lower it so I can avoid taking meds. A few other things, I am not obese (maybe about 10 lbs overweight) and have normal blood pressure (usually about 125/70). Any suggestions?[/QUOTE]

Dave, I can't take statins, so I like many other's have battling numbers for a few years with diet and exercise. Have U tried oatmeal, cinnamon or green tea? I don't know if it was a fluke or what, but 3 months ago I started drinking alot of green tea, taking 1/4 tsp. cinnamon each morning, and my numbers went from...TC..239 to 198....LDL...161 to 129. It didn't do much for my Trigs, but they have always been borderline high as well as my TC and LDL.

I'm sure folks here will give U many other suggestions, but that is something to think about also. Don't forget the fruits and veggies.... :wave:
