My problem is that I have low cholestrol
March 4, 2008 8:01pm CST
I went to the doctor last week for a check up and she told me that I have a problem. My problem is that my good cholestrol is very low, way below recommended. I am at high risk of heart attack as someone who has normal good cholestrol and high bad cholestrol. The thing is that good cholestrol helps you get rid of bad cholestrol. So if you don't have good cholestrol, your bad cholestrol will stay in your body.

P.S. you probably should start taking Niacin, but you should ask your doctor first. My good cholesterol is low too, and my doctor told me start taking Niacin, but its awful cause it makes you flush in the middle of night, you'll wake up feeling like your on fire, I've had to actually take a cold shower in the middle of the night, cause I got so hot. But they do sell niacin, that doesn't have those side effects, so I'm going to look for that...
