Just thought I'd share an interesting point about lowering cholesterol without the use of drugs. I have familial hyperlipoproteinaemia & have taken therapy for 40 yrs. My latest regime (for quite some years now) is Ezetrol 10mg. + Crestor 40mg daily & my cholesterol has never been less than 4.3 mmol/l. For the past few months I have been taking a Benecol drink each day & my latest blood test (non-fasting) on 5/9/13 revealed a reduction in cholesterol to 3.8 mmol/l & LDL of 1.98 (my LDL is usually elevated). As my diet has not changed (I have never followed a low fat diet as I hate all the things this entails) I can only presume the drop is due to the Benecol.
