Hello Everyone,

I am new to this board.

My doctor is not pleased with my cholesterol numbers but from what I have read they are pretty good. I just got tested again today and will get the results in a week.

Here are the numbers from 3 months ago:
Total Cholesterol 217
LDL 117
HDL 76
Triglycerides 120

I am 50; not diabetic, no high blood pressure, don't smoke; watch my diet carefully. Got EKG, Stress test and echocardiogram last year - all fine. Also Homocystene and CRP are normal too.

I do take 1000mg of Niaspan ER before bedtime.

Doc wants TC below 200 and LDL below 100.

I was on Lipitor once but had a bad reaction to it (leg pain that made my eyes pop out!).

My doc is driving me crazy.:dizzy:

Any thoughts on what else I can do short of statins? Should I consult another doctor?
