Re: Niaspan ?
Sep 14, 2007
Did you try Policosonal from sugar cane wax and plant sterols? Before taking these two supplements my count was TC-300 LDL-192 HDL-62, my doc gave me a prescription for Lipitor and I threw it out. After the two supplements and a change of diet like you are eating (without niacin), my count is TC- 256 HDL-77 LDL-150, triglycerides, c-reactive protein, and homosysteine are normal. I go to the gym, but can't do much aerobics because I have bad knees.

I usually eat meat/fish/poultry with a startch and veggie for dinner, but take the sterols before I eat it, the other meals I opt for veggie salads with nuts, fruit, low carb pasta, beans, peanut butter sandwich, low sodium veggie soups, egg whites or omega 3 eggs, and oatmeal/oat bran cereal. I take 20 mgs. Policosonal every night without fail before I go to bed, it's supposed to raise HDL and lower LDL and triglyc. My LDL could be lower, it's borderline, but I'm happy with my ratio. If my LDL increases in the future I'm going to try niacin.

Good luck!
