High Cholesterol And Red Wine
Why can I not get an answer? What can I take for high cholesterol besides red wine or meds? Reservetrol or a supplement like that?
Take nothing: Have you tried altering your lifestyle and eliminating foods like fried foods, foods high in saturated fats and trans fats, etc. That raise cholesterol? Tried eating foods high in fiber that lower cholesterol? Tried wild alaskan salmon? Tried exercise, both cardio and muscle training? Red yeast rice is a supplement with statin drug like characteristics but try natural ways first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a daily glass of red wine be good for nafl for 43 yr old male with borderline high cholesterol?
No this: Is fallacy.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Drinking 1-2 glasses of red wine a day can raise HDL (good cholesterol) up to 20% & also lowers LDL cholesterol somewhat. However, even more important than lowering cholesterol, red wine contains antioxidants like resveratrols, catechins & anthocyanins. But more than 1-2 drinks a day is hazardous. See http://www.

Doubtful: The last hoopla over red wine as protecting one's heart turned out to be based on fraudulent data. Your decision to drink wine or not, and what type, should depend on your tastes rather than the far-fetched idea that it's going to keep your heart healthy. Http://www. Reuters.

I have high cholesterol, but am also a recovering alcoholic. Is there anything that does the job as well as red wine without the alcohol?
Yes: Red wine contains interesting molecules, but anyone who tells you this is the best way to lower cholesterol is joking with you. One of the key "red wine" papers was a fraud. Your physician has almost certainly recommended diet, exercise, and perhaps a statin (use only if the others fail and get a 2nd opinion). Very glad you are recovering -- this move will be a greater plus than anything else. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
History of high cholesterol (like sibs). Eat light, little meat. Gp stopped Zetia (ezetimibe) and prescribed red yeast. Is that ok for active, sharp 95yo woman?
My opinion: There is a paucity of data to support taking red yeast although lowering cholesterol is a reported use. The real question is whether a 95 yo woman should be on anything for cholesterol. Imo, if you have hx of heart attack, stent or bypass, it's reasonable to stabilize plaque. If not, I wouldn't use it. (ie there's no indication for primary prevention in this age group). ...Read more

I am 34 years old, 365 pds, I take niacin, red yeast rice and fish oil, for high cholesterol, hbp at what age should I consider a asprian regimen?
Probably 50: Because of your age, your risk is still on the low side, so instead of starting aspirin, you should do your best to lose weight. I know I am not offering groundbreaking news to you, but often we discount the most important thing that we can do and look for the esoteric. A 34 year old non-diabetic, does not need to be on aspirin, you need to lose weight, no matter what length you'd have to go to. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
