I had a doctor that told me simply to stop eating fatty foods after I had a cholesterol test that showed up high, he didn't seem intere4sted in anything more than explaining the types of meds I could take if I weren't able to decrease my cholesterol naturally. I decided to learn about it myself and found out there are 4 main types of fat...trans fats, saturated fats (the bad fats), mono-unsaturated, poly-unsaturated (the good fats). I learned that eating more of the good fats and doing all I can to avoid the bad fats would increase my good cholesterol and decrease my bad cholesterol. I also started eating more whole grains, seafood and veggies.
In 4 months I dropped my cholesterol 100 points to a normal level, naturally.
I'm happy to hear they found your blockage before it became a catastrophe...nows a good time to start reading the labels on what you eat.
