Hi, This is my first post. I have really benefited from reading all of your blogs and questions so far. I had a stent fitted 6 weeks ago due to a severe blockage in LAD coronary artery. Alongside all the other meds I need to take, I have tried Atorvastatin and Pravastatin (as well as Simvastatin previously) but have had to stop due to the completely debilitating side effects. I will try the diet and exercise method but would like to be able to keep a check on cholesterol levels myself. Has anyone experience of using the commercial kits or machines which are available at wide ranging prices? Any recommendations would be helpful.
