A year and a half ago I had a heart attack and had several stents installed.
I just got my lipid test and there is a new thing on it. A ‘risk ratio’, but it says nothing about it.
So I need a chart or an equation to figure out how much saturated fat I can eat daily, using the risk ratio of 4.
I stopped taking my Crestor of 5mg daily because the insurance will not pay for it now. I’m not sure it really helped any ways and there is the fear that it could give me a clogged artery.
When I see my doctor, I will ask about other statins, but I do not think he knows anything about dietary inputs like the deadly saturated fats that are in almost all food.
And to give you more food for thought:
There is some controversy about coconut oil, probable the same corporation that owns Crisco started the idea that it could be safe to eat coconut oil; because they now use palm oil for Crisco, instead of manmade hydrogenated oils now known as Trans Fat. What a scam.
