Same problem. I eat healthily,exercise regularly, don’t really drink,eat all the right stuff (oats,soy,flaxseed etc) but my cholesterol remained high. But my Dad has high cholesterol and his mum had high cholesterol and therefore it was probably inevitable I’d have it as well. Went on statins a few months ago and have had no problems.Cholesterol down, no side effects. And Tim, statins are usually for life. Inherited (hyperfamilial cholesterama or something) means permanently high cholesterol. Don’t worry Katherine,you haven’t failed,its just another thing to add to the list of non-voluntary medical situations…
