The oat bran may possibly help by absorbing some of the cholesterol from the intestine. To what extent it may help, I don't know.

If your doctor feels you need to take something for your cholesterol, I would suggest you ask him about Niaspan(prescription niacin)instead of a statin drug. Also, you really should have your LDL measured. By that I mean that you should have it broken down to determine particle size. Large LDL particle size means that it is less dangerous than mostly small LDL particle size. Niacin, in addition to raising your good HDL cholesterol, can also lower both total cholesterol and LDL, while shifting LDL composition towards that of the more benign larger particle size. I hope this helped.
