Like "My husband is like you. His run in the 18,000's and it is insane. He doesn't have high blood pressure or anyother ailemnts (other than being in a wheel chair) It freaked me out. We give him Red yeast Rice and Polycosinol, and that helped get it lower, but it is still very high. The drugs the doctor perscribed messed with his liver, so we said no to that. When you find that study...let us know. LOL"
