I have just had a fasting blood test and my cholesterol is 6.9. I have been offered Statins but thought I would try to lower it by diet first in case the statins affected the AF. Has anyone lowered their cholesterol by diet alone - and if so which foods helped please.
Also please does anyone know if 6.9 is really excessively high and do statins affect other meds. I am currently on diltiazem slow release and apart from a few palpitations each day and breathlessness, I am currently currently having a reasonable "run".
