I always thought I was a healthy eater but was blindsided at a recent doctor’s appointment when I was told my cholesterol and blood pressure were high. My combined cholesterol was 243 and my LDL was 172. What was worse is that a cat scan revealed plaque buildup in my left coronary artery. With three kids and a wife at home, I was worried. Within two months I dropped my combined cholesterol 100 points down to 143! My LDL was cut to 83. My inflammation markers are all very low and my blood pressure has returned to normal.
