So at recent check up my cholesterol is 6.1 I'm only 27 years of age. I asked for 6 weeks to see if I could get it down via diet… Anyone else had anything similar?

I'm the same age and my cholesterol is bad enough that the doctor put me on lovastatin. I'm trying to change my diet and I've added an omega-3 supplement as well and a bit of diatomecous earth to my diet in an attempt to bring it down.

I've discovered I'm having a lot of side effects from the lovastatin lately o when I go back to the doctor I plan on asking for another test to see if the past three months has gotten me down to a point where I can go off the pill. If not I'm getting a new medicine that hopefully won't hit me with a new list of side effects.

I suggest getting used to getting used to eating oats. lol
