I thought I was okay with having high cholesterol…until I heard this: “Midlife Cholesterol Linked to Dementia” on NPR.
I’ve had high cholesterol since my early 20s. I just turned 29. I have great “good” cholesterol and blood pressure. Two to three years on a vegetarian diet did nothing to help my “bad” cholesterol. And since I’ve taken an interest in whole foods, I’ve read compelling information on how diet and cholesterol are, at best, loosely related.
I feel really silly arguing with my doctor about whether I really need to keep my cholesterol “under control” with meds. I’m sure I need to try the tried and true method of weight loss. Don’t worry, I’m not going to turn oklavore.com into a diet site. Just some rambling thoughts… I’d like to hear yours.
