... Lulubells, Many older members of this board including myself, have gone way past the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle change days which in the majority of cases only produce mild positive effects on our health. Let's face it, for the majority of our lives we have abused our internal organs with incorrect nutritional input, lack of exercise etc. Now in our latter years,... (13 replies)

... 24% body fat is fairly high for a man, especially for a younger man. For a man, typically 25% to 26% is the limit of the "acceptable" range, but 17% or lower is generally considered more desirable. Also, based on formulas that calculate body fat percentage only from height and weight or BMI, population averages for men of BMI 25 are probably in the 20% to 22% range. Since... (6 replies)
... Hi Ace, Thanks for the information, you have been very helpful!! I have a Costco right down the street and will check out their milk thistle. Thanks again, Missy (6 replies)
... Missy - Reactions are always possible, but they appear to be rare. Milk Thistle appears to be the safest and most studied herb for liver function. An added plus with Milk Thistle is improved digestion. When you take Milk Thistle, do not take it with any medications. Take it at a different time. Apparently, Milk thistle can affect the way some medicines work and processed by... (6 replies)
... Hi Ace28, Thanks for the information. I have bought some Milk Thistle but am afraid to take it because I suffer from allergies and it states on the bottle, not to take if you are allergic to rag weed and I'm not sure what I am allergic to. I hope soon I can get up the nerve to take one. I'm not sure I would ever take another statin, my muscles aches are still bad. I... (6 replies)
... Missy - High liver enzymes can be a real problem and signals liver damage. Maybe you can try taking half the dosage, after you check with your doctor. You can also try a very low dosage (5mg) of Crestor which is just as potent as Simvastatin. The Red Yeast Rice is similar to statins, the only problem is the muscle side effects are still possible and you don't know what your... (6 replies)
... Hi Razo30, I took Zocor 40 mg for many years until this last June when I started feeling really bad due to my muscle aches. I never had a problem for the first two years and then my last blood test showed my liver enzymes rising and my kidneys starting to fail. I quit taking Zocor even though my doctor wanted me to continue taking it. My cholesterol too was in the 300's... (6 replies)
... My doctor just switched me over to Liptor 40MG. I have been doing some searches on the internet and all of a sudden I see many people have muscle ache and pain as a side effect. Is this a very common side effect with Liptor. I did not experience any muscle ache with my last cholesterol medicine simvastin, but it did pop up with some issues my liver functions in the...

... Susie, I have been reading your thread for a couple of days now.

I started with 500mg of niaspam daily - baby aspirin first - went a month on that then switched to 750 mg - but the flush whale said NO - after taking for about 25 days or so I called my doctor and said this was not going to make it - no way would I eventually be able to reach that magic number of...
