Donna, what are those cholesterol numbers: Cholesterol - 12/31: 427, 1/1: 230, 1/2: 54, ( 54 ? Yes! ) ? Is that your mg of dietary cholesterol intake or your blood cholesterol numbers?

I got my blood cholesterol down from 244 to 198 via 250mg or less daily dietary cholesterol intake along with supplements my doctor approved--fish oil and red yeast rice. Caution everyone: never take supplements without your doctor's approval as they do change your body chemistry and your doctor needs to work with you on determining the correct dosage for your body.
