Hi, I had a recent blood test which showed my cholesterol as 7.43. I'm a 37 year old female with high cholesterol, heart disease, heart attacks etc in the family. It seems I have been passed it down!
The doctor wants me on statins but I am concerned and am thinking of trying to lower it with diet or supplements over the next 3 months until my next bloods.
I eat generally healthy anyway but do like a fortnightly takeaway. Can I have one monthly or never again?! Anyway, please could someone tell me if they know of the perfect cholesterol lowering diet plan so I can follow it?
Also, I want a scan of my heart/arteries. What should I be asking for? I want checking out as thoroughly as possible.
