:D Happy 300th post. I hope you don't need this test, or a sign of illness on your part. I don't know what we'd do without your ill-tempered self around here. ;)

Thanks for the input, I'm going to send this to the Dr. tomorrow. My cholesterol is high especially the LDL but everything else is good. I've had the calcium score test done twice - at age 42 and this year at 47. Both times the test scored zero.

I've tried all the "statin" drugs and cannot take them for severe muscle aches and fatigue even with supplement COQ10. There is nothing I can do. I'm not overweight, I eat a good diet, and It's just hereditary and nerve wracking.

But I'm also not sure of the long term ill effects of the statins. Or where the magic number of 200 for total C came from...Or how these drugs effect the most important muscle of all, the heart. So I'm glad I'm intolerant to them.

I take 2 LOVAZA OMEGA 3 pills (2 gms) a day, and Vitamin C.

It hurts to see such high cholesterol levels.
I went out to work in Japan and came back with LDL and HDL in the 50's.
The doctor seemed shocked. Moral of the story, recognize how
eccentric the American diet is and go Asian: fish, beer, rice, veggies, chicken,etc
and you'll get those scores down pronto. And have a good time doing it.
