You can also get you oatmeal intake by making homemade oatmeal cookies and oatmeal bread or muffins. Or by making an oatmeal crumb crust topping for your holiday fruit pies instead of a regular one.

According to what I was told, most oatmeal products can help reduce cholesterol in the body.

Unfortunately, the reduction oatmeal provides is so realtively small (8 to 12 points) that, if that's all the reduciton you need, you shouldn't be worrying about your cholesterol to begin with.

I had a blood test done at the cardiologist's office two weeks ago.. She told me that my cholesterol level was at 110 and thinks that it was too high!

I told her that it's been higher than that, about 175. She told me that she would call my pharmacist to increase (double) the dosage of Simvastatin, a medicine which helps reduce the cholesterol level.

I wouldn't think that 110 was bad? MIne was 132 and they were proud of me.

Yeah, we can't get rid of it altogether, as some is needed in the system.

That's great to know. Oatmeal is one of the simplest food around! Not hard to find or prepare.

Haha!! I used to love that commercial!! Retro TV! They had brought it back for a while. TV Land shows retro comercials.

Actually, I know where I can get it, but the supermarket that has it is on the other side of town. Maybe I'll go their this weekend.

Ive never really like eating oatmeal. But my dad keeps telling me that it really is good for the health and lowers bad cholesterol. Well, i guess you two had the same thing in mind...
