High Cholesterol Board Index

Seven weeks ago my cholesterol numbers were:

TOTAL: 241
LDL: 138
HDL: 44
TRIG: 278

NOTE: Blood tests were done 2 days after Thanksgiving....

I was taking 3,000 mg of NIACIN(ER), 10 mg of pravachol, 2 fish oil tablets, 2,000 mg of VITAMIN C, 50 mg of CO-ENZYME Q10, 1200 mg of plant sterols. (Nature Made CHOLEST-OFF) and a multi-vtamin.

On approx. 12/5/05. I dropped my "High Potency Multi-vitamin" and the Nature Made (Cholestoff) and replaced them with "Benechol" (which is a rather expensive butter substitute proven in research to lower cholesterol)
and "One A Day Cholesterol Plus with/policosanol" Multivitamin.

My latest numbers (a couple of weeks ago) were:

Total: 205
LDL: 116
HDL: 50
TRIG: 156

My doctor was rather impressed to see such improvement in less than 8 weeks. He was very curious about the positive changes which improved
my numbers. As I mentioned, the only things I changed were replacing my High Potency Multi-vitamin with "One A Day Cholesterol Plus" Multi.(Which states it maintains cholesterol levels, and helps lower blood-pressure) and substituting the "BENECHOL" butter substitute on (Toast, Baked foods etc)

I think we always need to experiment, and we sometimes need to be our own doctors.

P.S. My doctor said, keep doing what your doing...
