Congratulations Don !! Wow 23 years later and you are doing great...Since living in Thailand now for almost a year, I eat mostly the local food that consist primarily of fish and chicken, however sometimes I eat other meats. I take 10mg Crestor daily and 81mg aspirin and last week my LDL was 67 Hdl 46 and overall cholesterol was 129...Doctor will check me again in 8 weeks and if it is any lower she will cut my Crestor to 5MG
I had quad bypass over 3 years ago.
Again happy to read your good news..and thanks for sharing.
