Some of you may remember last month I posted a thread about my cholesterol being 292 and was told by doc I'd have to go on meds. Before doing so he gave me a month to change my diet and then he would re-test. His thoughts were that at best I'd only be able to drop it down around 10 points. (I'm five-one and weight approx. 115 lbs.) Well, I'm very happy to report 30 days later after watching very, very carefully what I eat my cholesterol is now 235. Doc is now advising me to continue with watching what I eat and will re-test after the New Year. It seems like I may be able to avoid meds after all! Thanks for all your advise, ladies. It really helped me. I'm very grateful.
