Went to Dr's yesterday and my cholesterol was elevated....She's giving me three months to lower it before she's going to start pressuring me to go on meds..Anyone have any info or experience with Krill Oil supplements for lowering cholesterol? I sort of want to try this while also trying to lower my dietary cholesterol intake...Says the Krill Oil helps with PMS, depression, and weight loss as well....Not sold yet....

You may want to investigate the benefits of Red Yeast Rice. There is medical literature re: results. My friend dropped one of her levels 50 in 3 months-her registered nutritionist recommended.

Eat less simple carbs. You'll lower your triglycerides that way. Add in healthy fats to boost HDL.
