I am a bad candidate for Statins, due to a liver problem. My LDL is back up to 105, my overall cholesterol is 190, my Triglycerites are perfect. I had use Bayer Phytosterols when they came on the market and dropped my LDL by near 20 points. Bayer discontinued the pill, but I bought all I could find, only to find out, that my next blood test was back up. I tried 2 different Phytosterols, nothing helps now. I watch my diet, everything is no fat, low fat, fruit and veggies, but I'm stuck. I cannot excercise any longer, as I have Idiopathic neuropathy, it is horrible, I have to walk with a cane when going to a store. I am desperate to get my LDL down to the 80's again.....I'm asking for suggestions.
I have looked at it, I look at each medication in detail, because I have HPTC since 1983, so I am very careful.
I'm alrlegic to Pine trees, so CholestOff not for me
All my Liver enzymes are in the normal range. (always) A looked at so many Phytasterols, and tried 2, I go for the ones with the least additional ingredients.
I have ventricular tachycardia, have had it for 30 years now, and I'm on medication for it.
Most of the time my LDL is in the mid to upper 90's, but I like it lower again. My Diet is good, I just don't bring food in the house that I like but should not eat. So, I don't know if I should just not worry about it.
Most of the time my LDL is in the upper 90's, but when taking the Bayer Phytosterol it did go down to the mid to low 80's.
With my HPTC I'm always concerned about what I take. I did look at your link, but it did not talk about HPTC, so I don't know. I got it from a bad blood transfusion in 1983. Maybe I worry more than I should, when I see my cardiologist I always get a clean bill of health, as far as my heart, I take one pill for my Tachycardia, which is Rythmol 150 mg.View Thread
