    Just recently...The Doc put me on a diet before Thanksgiving, had my blood work done two weeks ago, no change in the LDL, but now my HDL is waay to low.

    When my DOC called me, whe said they were having a hard time figuring out what was going on.

    Long story short, I started Zocor. Have to have blood rechecked next month for any liver problems and then...on and on.

    Diet and exercise can work, but I think mine is more herditary than anything.

    good luck
