My doctor is sometimes mildly irritated when I refuse to take statins and cholesterol-lowering drugs. I have never had a good outcome for any I have taken, including Lipitor, Zocor, and several others. I am determined to use diet and exercise to lower my cholesterol. Your booklet gave me lots of info on the myriad drugs on the market. Now I am armed with good info if my doctor tries to recommend another one. If you have pertinent info when going to see your doctor, don’t let the doc browbeat you. You know your body best. Be precise and to the point when protesting. The doctor does not always know best.
These are a new set for my grown son, as I have my own The People’s Pharmacy papers I purchased last year. I had another email address then so I could not figure out how to keep anything together. These pages will be a big help for someone just beginning the high cholesterol work. At the same time I ordered the Diabetes papers, of which I have a copy from last year. Only thing I could not do was make the pages have a page number and the information referred to a page number on several occasions. My older Diabetes pages were numbered and did not take as many pages although most of the information was the same.
My doctor said that I would probably need to go on statins if my cholesterol did not come down. I got this guide and read it thoroughly and then crafted a strategy that involved reducing fats, red meat, and white flour and sugar. And, I began taking 3600 mg of fish oil each day, along with ginger, turmeric and cinnamon in my tea. I had great success in dropping my cholesterol 60 points in 3 months, from 247 to 185. My doctor was very impressed.
I found that this is a regimen that I comfortably follow, even when I travel.
Thanks for this great information.
