I have a high cholesterol naturally. I have been a healthy eater and exercised regularly but inherited a cholesterol problem. I have had my gallbladder removed (two years ago) and have just turned 40. My doctor is really hounding me about taking some kind of cholesterol lowering medicine but so far has not convinced me. My relatives that have high chol. have taken it and gone off of it because of the side effects. Because I have no gallbladder, does that make my chol. problem worse and does it have any effect on a liver cleanse now?
Im not getting the whole story from my MD. Any input is greatly appreciated!
