Cholesterol…

I had a blood profile done last May as it had not been addressed at all since I had gotten ill in 2002. All of my levels were normal except for my cholesterol, which was through the roof at 368. I tried everything I could to bring it down on my own (cinnamon, oatmeal, weight loss, etc) but in Dec it was still just as high. So the beginning of this year I went on 20 mg daily of Lipitor & it was down to 186 by Feb 14th.

I don’t think it had all that much to do with my CIDP, however, as I found some old medical records from 2000 & it was 300 even back then. It seems that it used to be a nonissue before all of the statin drugs were introduced, but I am taking no chances, as my father died at 62 of a heart attack…
