Re: Looking for expert opinion on my cholesterol numbers

Your ratios are within the recommended guidelines, probably due to taking a cholesterol lowering drug, since you say your diet hasn't been up to par. I don't understand (with these numbers) why your doc would want you to now take Crestor. Is he replacing this with the Simvastatin?

I'm not an "expert" but I would agree with you that diet and exercise could be beneficial, especially a low carb diet. There are also alternatives to these drugs, with their heavy side-effects, if you are interested in going that route.

Whatever you decide, I wish you the best.

Jen
