DW, I've always known the importance of diet, I just disregarded it for a long time because I was a dumdum. I'm working on getting that fixed and slowly eliminating the bad stuff that were staples for so long.
Kleen, my level was 350.4 when I got put on. I guess at my age and my level, it was substantial enough in my doc's eyes to be treated. Good luck man. I go in for bloods again in 4 1/2 weeks. We'll see what happens with dosages at that point.
