So yesterday 08/08/12 I started a brand new RX for Cholesterol. For the last 2 yrs my cholesterol was 241, this year it was 237 lower but not low enough. Due to family history and the fact that I have had high cholesterol for a very long time. I was worried about using a rx to lower it because my other doctor told me "once you are on a rx to lower your cholesterol you will be on it forever"
I did not like that idea because this type of rx can cause damage to your kidneys. My new doctor told me that if I can lower my weight & eat better (thanks sparkpeople) I could manage my cholesterol and eventually be taken off the rx, so let's see what happens.
