I have high cholesterol...395/245. I have a local internal medicine doctor. I was on statins, i.e., crestor, etc. but seemed to be bothered with muscle aches and pains. He put me on Welchol, a powder I take with water with my lunch. It has done nothing to correct my cholesterol problems. I went to Medical Weight Loss Clinic, was tested and received the above cholesterol results. My doctor usually tests me every 6 weeks for cholesterol but this time he just told me to come back in 6 months. I need a doctor who can help me with this problem. Can you advise. I watch my diet. High Cholesterol was a problem for my parents. I am 70 years old, weigh 195 pounds, 5 3 tall.
