Thanks for this info! I am going to do some research on it and discuss it with the specialist my daughter is seeing when we go back again! I would be more comfortable starting her on vitamins and such instead of the statins at this age!

Less beef, more chicken, pork and fish without skin.
Oatmeal, soy products, skim milk, vegetable and fruit.
Choose cheese without or with less cholesterol.
Less butter, more oliver oil.
No junk food.

Good luck!
