It's always a good feeling to decrease or stop the medication if possible. I knew the day the statin was prescribed there had to be another way around high cholesterol. Thankfully I found this way of eating and I disposed of my statin medication.
I thought we were to look at the overall TC and not the break down of HDL vs LDL. I do know I catch myself doing this regularly, when Dr. McDougall stresses what the TC reads. The numbers look good, hopefully a few month and your meds will be a thing of the past.
