Mike S. is grateful for the information he learned and the results of his blood tests!
Dear Dr. Fuhrman,
I recently had some heart issues and the result was two stents being inserted in one artery. I'm sure you get these emails about how great the Eat to Live program is but I have to tell my story.
After buying the book, Cholesterol Protection for Life on your web site, I began the program on Oct. 4. On Oct. 19, I had blood work done. I have been on Zocor for 10 years and have tried to control my diet with low fat foods, ecetera. I have never been able to get my cholesterol down, even with Zocor and the low fat diet. Imagine my shock when I received my results. They were as follows; triglycerides 129, cholesterol 136, HDL 40, and the “oh so important” LDL was 70! After such a short period of time! I wish I had found your book 10 years ago and avoided the heart problems I just went through.
I just went to my first follow-up doctor’s visit after having stents put in. I showed the blood work results to my cardiologist who said, “Fantastic job. But you must keep it up”. He has me scheduled for another nuclear stress test in February 2007. So I am exercising, doing 1.75 miles on the treadmill everyday, and staying with the Eat to Live diet to keep my cholesterol to where it is now.
I am so thankful for the information I have learned and continue to learn from Dr. Fuhrman's book. I will soon buy some of the other books. It truly is sad that doctors do not discuss with patients the heart health problems that come if they don't get high cholesterol under control when it is first noticed. I felt confident that the Zocor would keep things under control and it did not!
Thank you so much Dr. Fuhrman!
