My cholesterol level last October was 7.8 and the doctor wanted to put me on statins and aspirin (because of a slight amount of plaque on one artery) Since then I have been using cholesterol lowering Milk, Spread and Drink plus cutting down on fats and exercising more and last week at the pharmacy it was down to 6.7, but the pharmacy doesn't provide the ratio figures, but when I asked the doctor he said it was the other figures which count and that my HDL last October was far too low and the LDL level was much too high. He also said I should save my money on the cholesterol lowering drinks etc. Does anyone think that these drinks etc. are useless too?
