your body manufactures cholesterol. it's an imperative to the body and brain functioning optimally. if you are eating lots of fats, your body will eventually self-regulate and start producing less. in the meantime, your blood may show elevated cholesterol numbers. it may take 6-9 months for this to show "improvement".
however, there are far more potential negative issues with women being on statins. high cholesterol is NOT a disease. more and more studies are showing that higher numbers actually benefit women as we age.

As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
