At Steve’s July cardiologist appointment, the doctor recommended Steve go on a low dose statin to bring his cholesterol down further. With diet, he managed to achieve around 100 LDL but for reversal of plaque, the doctor said he needed 70 or below.
This year for Thanksgiving, we ate what the rest of the family did. And when someone now invites us over for dinner, we can eat what everyone else is eating. All along we had allowed ourselves an infrequent meal at a restaurant for a date at one of our favorite places. The normal fare at home, however, remains the guidelines from The End of Heart Disease.
A couple of weeks after starting the statin, Steve checked his cholesterol and the LDL was 70 already.
Trusting in Jesus,
“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me,
but I will not be brought under the power of any” (1 Corinthians 6:12).
