The reduction of milk and cheese was a positive that lowered my triglycerides. The cholesterol was the only other number kept in check by the lipitor, which I have resumed. I eat the basics of fresh fish or canned tuna, skinless chicken, and meat that is lean, well rinsed and stewed and rinsed again. I eliminate as much excess fat as I can. I eat very little junk food (except chocolate chip cookies), but lots of fruit and vegetables, though I do have microwave popcorn a few times a week (never a problem). My usual breakfast is apples and oatmeal. I will emphasize that until I started these "processes", my blood chemistry was fine.
What's worse is a recent on and off intestinal? distress that won't go away. Sometimes I feel like I have been kicked in the side (left), or in the gut. Had an unrelated MRI about six months ago, which showed nothing unusual.
