Holding off statins challenge 🙄

Hi...happy new year🥰

My annual check showed my nhs cholesterol level at 13 whatever that means but should be under 10 so I said I will seriously try to lower this myself as statins buggered my leg muscles up. Given me 6 months and if not lower suggest I try a different one, which I really don’t want to do 🙁 So a good breakfast for a healthy start to try to lower it with lifestyle changes and improvements. Off shopping for grapefruit, avocado and no processed baddies 😇

Hello,

What is the unit of measurement for your cholesterol?

UK, NHS cholesterol numbers are very different!

Weight gain and raised cholesterol can be linked to low thyroid function. Hopefully you have been correctly tested ... often NHS testing is woefully inadequate.
