My cholesterol is high and low: unfortunately, the bad stuff is high and the good stuff is low. I was undisciplined with the knife and fork over the fall, but I've been eating very well since around January 8, and so I was disappointed to see these results. Given my family background and risk level, my doctor said he wanted to put me on some kind of medication (he didn't tell me which one) but I don't want to do that. If I must, I will, but I'd rather not.
I've been taking fish oil pills for about five years and, up until now, this has worked to manage the problem. A fit friend of mine suggested that I double my current dosage from 3 to 6 pills per day which I will gladly do.
My question for you all is this: do you have suggestions for managing cholesterol that don't involve medications? Thanks in advance, have a great day!
