If you are concerned about cholesterol, I highly recommend reading this article and watching the video. This is the first time I have really had a better understanding of it all.

Since the medical mainstream, especially that part of it that makes statin drugs and that part of it that promotes them, is so convinced that cholesterol is the driving force behind heart disease, they keep looking for more and more ways to slice and dice cholesterol. I’m not sure, but it’s probably all in an effort to find the Holy Grail of cholesterol measurements, the one that absolutely correlates with heart disease, and is found to be causal. None of which has happened yet. How to lower your cholesterol

My genes are rubbish. Since finding my biological family and discovering the medical issues they all had.. I'm amazed I am still alive. Nonetheless I'm doing pretty well. MY arteries were clean last time I had the cardiac catheterisation, but I have enlargement and a reduced ejection fraction (meaning the pump isnt doing its job properly and hasnt for years). Various GPs have known this but nobody started any treatment until recently when a cardiologist put me on a beta blocker, some diuretics (2 kinds) and said if I could lose weight it might help, but might not. Diabetes has taken a bit of a back seat to my lack of stamina and heart/lung congestion.
