Thanks for your response. Husband is on Pravastatin(20mg) and we don't know what the results will be but he says it makes him feel funny. I tried to get him to tell me what that means, no good description. I bought him some Red Yeast Rice and I don't think it's anything more than some Chinese herbal remedy. No offense to the chinese herbalists intended. I'm sure if you've taken something herbal for a long period of time, there will be some benefit.
He's on a low sodium, low fat diet and has ordered and is eating the Nutrisystem foods. All hype, to me as their foods are chocked full of sodium. I know processed foods always are. I talked to his nurse practioner and she told me to just keep his daily sodium intake around 2300 to help him. I feed him the nutrisystem stuff but only about 4 days a week. He's losing weight and feels better so something is working, just got to get that cholesterol down, way down from the 250 number. I'm eating the same types of foods, good for the gander, good for the goose so maybe I'll lose a few of these spare tires and feel better as well.
After he's done with the prescription refills, we'll have his bloodwork done again and hopefully it'll be lower..... I'll keep the cholest-all in mind in the meantime. I keep telling him that eating supper at 9pm doesn't help either. DUH!
I've switched his butter to the promise and he likes it. Next trip to the grocery store, I'll get him some OJ! He's never been much on fruits and vegees but he's learning! I just tell him he has to eat it. Now, where is this boy's mother???? Heah, I is!
