"I have to echo what many say on this thread: it's the processed carbs and trans fats that raise cholesterol and I've experienced a dramatic positive change myself since cutting them completely out of my diet. I can't say I'm a…"

"Thanks, Natalie. You seem to have a very reasonable and non-alarmist attitude that is appreciated. I did start on Simvastatin, and had it keep me awake very badly. It was such a pronounced reaction that I was forced to stop taking it as I was so…"

"A few people have a bad reaction to statins; the vast majority don't. It stands to reason that those who have had a bad reaction would be against them, and would caution other people about it. But the only way to know whether you can tolerate…"

"It was the bad kind :D I also had a heart scan to see if I had any plaque build up, and it was clear. My good cholesterol is fairly high, but the slow increase in the bad had my endo pushing for a low level start to statins. I know how statins are…"

"Aawww, thanks for the endorsement. Restaurants can be a challenge, but I've never had a problem with getting substitutes for carb laden items & get sauces on the side. Times they've goofed, I nicely send it back."

"My experience, when eating low-carb, was that my cholesterol numbers were the best I ever had. I do take a very low dose of Simvastatin and Zetia, but I was taking that before I tried the low carb, and so that's not the reason I saw such an…"
