I have go the message about healthy cholesterol a 100 times over, I'm aware of the importance of cholesterol for the body, also about healthy eating and exercise; I do them both by the way. I went on the diet high protein, calorie counting even though it's fastidious, will a loss of 2 kg in 5 weeks, I'm not really satisfied. I'm overweight by 6 kg; but where do I go from here? High cholesterol (7,2) and on Levothyroxine (82,5 mg) I'm more or less off gluten and lactose (full cream bowl of milk with cereal in morning and cheese, no or very little bread/week). I've ordered the famous book on Thyroid treatment scandal "The great cholesterl con" so will study it closely; however as I said earlier to another person when you see a well respected Endocrinologist who tells you with much annoyance to get on to statins with no more delay for your own good then you must take that into consideration. People, doctors and good sense tells me that statins are not good for me, especially after all the cramp I had on Tahor, so now that I've stopped it I have to find a solution other than what I'm already doing: healthy eating and exercise; (never eat processed food and haven't done for years) llittle gluten and lactose (except for the bowl of milk and cheese), eating high protein and lots of vegs and fruit..... so where to now?
