>Don't want to be on statins

If I didn't want to be on statin drugs then I would do.

1. Ensure you eat properly.

2. Start with 8 - 10 grams of fish oil for a few months,
re-test the cholesterol and eventually drop the fish oil
intake down, maybe 2 grams to 6 grams daily. Fish oil
comes typically in 1000 mg {1 gram} capsules. I would
seek quality fish oil, the kind with about 300 mg of EPA
and 200 mg of DHA. Some fish oil have 400 mg of EPA,
200 DHA which is good too. Lower cost fish oils may
only have 180 mg of EPA and 120 mg of DHA so you
would need to consume more of these vs. the others.

3. Add vitamins and minerals to the regimen.

The first thing you may notice is that the triglycerides
levels may drop alot, total cholesterol may be slow to
get the number down, but the LDL will rise because
it's usually a calculation, ie

Total cholesterol - hdl - (trig / 5)

As you can see by the formula, if you took a statin drug
that keeps LDL in the normal range, having high trig
levels makes LDL look sweeter in spite that you have high
trig. /comedy

If you lower trig {a good thing}, LDL will rise. Therefore
the trick is to lower total cholesterol also and boost HDL.

Armed with knowledge, you can sorta see the how the
statin drug 'scam' works. lol
