I am a 53 y.o. woman, 5'8" 215 lbs. with high cholesterol and high triglycerides. In June I started a healthy eating program, (no simple carbs, white sugar, etc.) and walking 30 minutes at least 3 times a week. Since I started I have lost 25 lbs. (I was at 240). Am I doing enough? What else do I need to do to prevent anymore damage? I am on Niaspan and Tricor to control the cholesterol and triglycerides. I am very worried as I will soon be in menopause where apparently my risk goes way up. Thank you so much for your time!
