      I was just at my endo’s and my cholesterol levels are very high 30’s still.
      Am getting the same pressure from doc to take chol lowering drugs. I
      am now on 5 medications including insulin, Armour thyroid, anti-hypertensives,
      etc. I mentioned that I have had no luck losing any wight after 6 weeks on
      an 800 calorie iet and he said tdon’t eat. Great advice!!!!
      Grrrrrr! Oh well, at least I’m not gaining.
      What are the side effets of cholesterol lowering drugs? Anybody know?
      My doc told me it is now easy again to get Armour thyroid. It is making
      a comeback because so many people are now reporting low effectiveness
      of synthroid. New manufacturer has retooled production process to meet
      FDA standards on potency. Great news for those who find synthroid less
      effective than medications with T3.
      Karen let us know if chelation helps.

        Hiya Joan-

        I found I had to go for about 2 months of not eating much before I even started losing weight. What a pain.

          Hi Karen!

          Wondering how the chelation therapy is going for you. Am jelous, would really like to try that.

          Isn’t that supposed to help with high cholesterol? My last blood tests were great except for the cholesterol was up to 297, yuk. That is after daily doses of garlic for 4 months now so that hasn’t worked. Really hate to take the cholesterol lowering drugs but the doc is really bugging my to do that. Diet seems to have no effect on it for me.
