One of the medications that I am taking currently is Lipitor. Studies have shown that Lipitor can reduce the risk of a future stroke significantly. While my LDL numbers are in normal range for a healthy 32 year old, they are high for someone with a chance of a future stroke. Therefore, I will work on keeping my LDL numbers below 100, and take the Lipitor to keep the numbers down as well. So what can we do to keep our cholesterol numbers down?
-eat more fiber, like oatmeal, fruits and veggies
-eat less fat from protein and dairy products
I need to work on #2, and #4… How are your numbers?
