This is one of the best sites for a caring community. I have gone to and looked at others, including 'hot' ones like 'patientslikeme.com', but I find people genuinely caring here.
Here's a bit about me.
There is great information here. I am 48 year old male with high cholesterol that was discovered 8 years ago. I tried to control with diet and exercise, but couldn't since it is hereditary in my case. I am now on Crestor. Started with 20mg, now down to 10 mg.
Just spoke with my doc, we're going to get an EKG done to be safe.
I am not overweight, in fact, probably underweight, and always have been throughout my life. I'm 5'4", 110 lbs.
I suspect my arteries are getting clogged up. I want to try other natural remedies like Niacin, Pectin etc, but I am not sure about doing it while on Crestor.
Any feedback from anyone?
In the mean time, I'll get more tests done and post my findings.
