My wife and I have been using the soluble psyllium fiber every morning. Metamucil is one of the main brands, but any should do if it has the psyllium in it. It made a difference for both of us - dropped our cholesterol each 20+ points.

My cholesterol is 294 MG/DL. HDL is 80 mg/dl and my LDL is 191.0 mg/dl. I am 74 years old and have had high cholesterol every since I was tested. It has gone up as high as 320. Doctors tell me it is inherited. I have been on many satins and they all make me very sick. I have collagenous colitis since I was a very young child. Most medicines so not agree with me. I watch what I eat and take homeopathic supplements to try to lower the cholesterol. Any other suggestions. I did suffer a TMI 2 years ago with no lingering side effects but it does concern me very much.

I cannot seem to tolerate statins, My cardiologists has ordered a calcium scoring to see if there is any plaque build up and given me a prescription for a niacin med 500 mg daily.
