Hello new community! Some of you may know me already, I am a follower on HealthUnlocked Weightloss site and a succesful "loser". and have since been a "maintainer " since 2015.
I am female, age 64 and 9st 9lbs, BMI 22.5 . I eat a balanced diet within my TDEE , but have not totally banned any foods. I exercise by walking most days 40-60 minutes. I have so far been in good health although I do take medication to control blood pressure. Recently a multi blood test showed my overall cholesterol was 7.5 but with good HDL . I was very shocked as I'm not overweight, don't smoke etc. With family history my doctor says its most likely hereditary and says I need statins. I'm reluctant . Anyone else in this position?
