You should not be discouraged and continue to do exercise eat probably take a low fat low cholesterol and low carbohydrate diet keep your wt in control and if these general measures do not bring to required a level then now you can start some medications like the Statin drugs in consultation with your local doctor thank you very much if you have any risk factors like smoking Drinking overweight then you should take medicines earlier if any more questions please let me know thank you

I am 47, and have high cholesterol. LDL is 180. Family history of heart problems. I was put on crestor, but stopped taking it because muscle aches prevented me from exercising, which had allowed me to lose 30 lbs. A friend tried a food option called Step One Foods. . Lowered his LDL be nearly 50 points in a month. What do you think about this approach?
