... Hello folks, I'm posting here because my Doctor wants me on Lipitor for high LDL but if possible I would rather go the diet route. Not asking anyone to contradict my Doctor, but is it possible diet is playing a role? I know LDL has a BIG genetic component, but both parents are in their late 70s and have never had any heart issues. Here are my stats: Total cholesterol: 212... (3 replies)
... Hi there. Short background. I recently went to the Urgent Care clinic because I had not been feeling well. Light headed, slight pain in upper left chest as well in my shoulder, although I do suffer from muscle tightness in that area almost always.

... I'm no expert and there is more great advice in the thyroid section of this board. I would suggest blood test for TSH, free T3 and free T4. There is great controversy over the "normal" TSH range. The American Board of Clinical Endocrinologists lowered the upper limit to 2.5, however the medical community and blood labs are slow to adopt this and many people go untreated for... (18 replies)

Wife's new numbers
May 24, 2001
... Hi Old Guy/BT...Well I hope by increasing the BHT will once again get her numbers down. I am assuming neither she nor U are on any of the statins.

He wasn't concerned about the trigs.... (4 replies)
