I have lupus and the menopause and it’s currently a tough time for me because of these. I’m 50
Suddenly my cholesterol is high on a fasted morning blood test 7.1. It’s normally 5.9 or 6.4 in the day after lunch. My doc wants to put me on Atorvastatin. I’m not happy about it due to the muscle tiredness it could produce.
I went to Holland abd Barrett today to ask for help. The lady suggested high strength garlic. I picked it up and benecol chews and decided I would change my diet and try and be more active.
Can you tell me what foods/ diets / exercise and supplements have worked for you to reduce your cholesterol please?
I would be most grateful. X
