I am trying to use diet and exercise to control my cholesterol. Eating less meat and more vegetables and fruit. Also oatmeal and whole grains and I am taking fish oil supplements to lower my triglycerides, I go back in August to get tested hopefully the numbers will be better. I am quite honesty afraid of the medicines.
