Last year my husband had some cardiac testing and it was determined he has 50% buildup in his LAD and his cholesterol was slightly elevated. He saw two cardiologists who both said he should take statin meds to reduce cholesterol based on his age (early 50s) and family history. He decided to see a nutritionist to see what he could do to avoid meds. For five months now, he’s been eating a very clean vegan diet, has increased his cardio to almost daily biking, walking, swimming or elliptical machine. He also takes a bunch of supplements per the nutritionist’s prescription. He just had his cholesterol retested and is very upset that, while he brought his cholesterol down, his LDLs are still high (120).
Can anyone recommend an excellent cardiologist who is also knowledgeable about and open to ways of treating such issues without medication? Thank you!
