Welcome. There is a lot you can do to help yourself and diet and exercise are a good start. Oatmeal and an apple (with peel on) a day plus fish oil help, too.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates

i would highly recommend you get a copy of CHOLESTEROL DOWN by Dr.Janet Brill. It is an interesting read.. easy to follow and her tips on getting healthy are worthwhile. Here is a link to what all is contained in her book...

AND if you notice ANY of the side effects of the statins that your doctor has recommended - you should IMMEDIATELY let your doctor know....

Hi Everyone,

I have some heart issues and learned late January that I have high BP and was put on a med to help bring in down and relax my heart. I saw the Dr Monday for blood test results and since my BP has not responded as well as he wanted it to, I was given an additional BP med and also learned that my Cholesterol is high and was put on Atorvastatin Calcium Tablets 20mg. I have never been on meds and really would be happier if I didn't need them but I'll do what he suggests (I don't want a Stroke or Heart Attack). I have been a member of SP since 2009 and have been away for awhile but this brought me back for help with my diet. I found this group and hope to learn tips from those who have the same problem. Hope all of you are succeeding with your cholesterol trials.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.


Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
