How Does The Body Get Rid Of Cholesterol
What's the safest nsaid to take if I have high cholesterol? If none, what else can I do to get rid of inflammation in my body?
They're okay: You'll be told about 'inflammation all over your body' being the cause of atherosclerosis. We pathologists don't use the term 'inflammation' in the same way, and the NSAIDS aren't going to deal with this -- they don't suppress atherogenesis. You can ask your perosonal physician whether you want to be on daily aspirin, and perhaps your physician can clarify the cause of your joint troubles too. ...Read more

No easy way: Rarely do cholesterol plaques regress. There are a couple of studies showing that very high-dose statin use (crestor (rosuvastatin) or lipitor) can cause some regression of plaques, but it is incomplete and not clinically significant. Most of the time it is a matter of managing the plaques that are there to prevent them from progressing and to prevent new plaques from forming. ...Read more

How does the body get rid of excess iron? I'm pregnant and prenatal vitamin has 150% iron per pill. Seems like too much?
Pregnancy & menses:
One way the body gets rid of excess iron is to use it for your baby so pregnant women need extra iron for their baby's health. Once you give birth and resume menstruation you'll lose iron with every menstrual period. 150% iron is not too much; our bodies don't absorb iron all that well so not all of it is getting into your body.
I recommend this for all expecting moms: http://tinyurl. Com/jjpyrg8 ...Read more
