Ted,I started a thread on cholesterol on the low carb board. Some of the replies have very interesting links, though I'm afraid a bit of a pissing contest is in there too.http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=19469869&sort=whole#19470321I would definitely discuss these issues with your doctor(s). I don't understand why they feel you are at increased cardiac risk as a diabetic over say a non-diabetic with cardiac issues. I've never seen this lower cholesterol at any cost approach before, but I admit I'm no doctor, (even though we sure do see enough of them in my family.) My dad, who had a tripple bypass 20+ years ago and my mom who suffered from a major stroke a few years back have not had this approach prescribed by any number of doctors visited, nor by the once over given by the Mayo clinic. Is one of your doctors an endocrinologist? If not, may be time to get one.Best,InParadise
