Yikes, folks! Susan said she was on a very low carb diet which is no doubt the reason for her doctor no longer wanting to put her on statins. Low carbing is the only way of eating to date that has been shown to improve one's cholesterol and lipid profile based on studies that were actually constructed to show the opposite. Perhaps I am reading your replies wrong, but why the cheerleading for taking drugs when modifying your diet does the trick just as well with out any side effects or budgetary calamities of popping very expensive pills?

who would much rather tackle the root cause than simply hide the effect with medecines.
