High Cholesterol Board Index


First some vital stats: Male, Age 45, 1.75m, 74kg, normal blood pressure albeit with blood pressure medication since last 3 years (telmisartan 20 mg). Food habits are ok (could be better), moderate alcohol consumption (2 – 3 units a week). No incidence of heart attack or stroke yet (touch wood).

I have been testing myself for cholesterol since 2008 (age 40) and these are the results:

My doc has recently put me on 10mg Rosuvastatin (once daily) + 375mg x 2 times a day to get the values in order. The problem is – having taken the medication for 4 days, I am not sure I like the way I feel – it is hard to describe, but I don’t feel “normal”.

Is there some way I can make lifestyle modifications to improve my cholesterol and triglyceride levels?
