So I picked the wrong parents. Specifically, I picked the wrong father. Why you might ask? Well for starters, I have familial hypercholesterolemia (genetically induced high cholesterol). You know it's bad when your doctor looks at you and says, "Did you drink a quart of cream before taking this blood test?" Needless to say, my cholesterol numbers are north of 300, with my triglycerides being north of 1000. Like I said, I picked the wrong parents.
Anyway, how many of you, who have had numbers this high, have been able to bring them down with just "diet and exercise"? Also, how much of a drop in those numbers have you been able to get? Right now, I'm on Crestor (my "old man drugs" as I call them), because the doctor said that I wouldn't be able to get my numbers down without help, but I just wanted to see how you all have done.
