cmo and elevated level in ldl from latest cholesterol test

I'm 59 and had amazing results in Feb. when I was perscribed 10 mg of lipitor after my cholesterol test showed 298. It went down to 180.  I also have arthritis in both knees and discoverd cmo (cetyl myosteolate) which source is bovine.  This was the only thing I could think of that I added since the cholesterol test was done in Feb.   Last week my cholestreol test showed a total of 219 with an elevated LDL.  Before I consult with my doctor, I just have a feeling it has something to do with the cmo.  What do you think?

Well, I don't know all the ins and outs of cholesterol numbers,

but I suspect that you have a bigger autoimmune metabolic issue overall.  In my case, I believe the high bad cholesterol that just showed up, end of my 50's and the type 2 diabetes that showed up just 5 years prior ... are both birth defects of my dad's WWII Navy exposure to 2-butoxyethanol or similar chemical.

I know you won't hear this from anyone else.  I am dead serious.  The epidemic that our world ... especially USA, Britain and Europe is seeing in this time ... could be directly linked to exposures of our ancestors to the bomb fumes and cleaners that became extremely prevalent in those WWII days ... and continuing to this very day.

Warnings are inadequate.  But many products we use in our households are unsafe.  See if there were the signs in anyone in your family ... even in yourself ... that would be CFS, FM or Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome.

And if I'm right, as I firmly believe I am, the help offerred is like putting a bandaid on a dam leak:  near hopeless.  I am going to follow the suggestions of Roger J. Williams, PhD and believe the the right approach is good nutrition and the glyconutrients that are doing so well in the trials now.

According to one web reference (note corrected spelling) Cetyl myristoleate is an oil, or more specifically the hexadecyl ester of the unsaturated fatty acid cis-9-tetradecenoic acid. The common name for the acid is myristoleic acid. Myristoleic acid is found commonly in fish oils, whale oils, dairy butter, and kombo butter. The chemical formula for cetyl myristoleate is (Z)-ROCO(CH2)7CH=CH(CH2)3CH3.

It is not known to be toxic.  As a dietary supplement - taken in large doses, it may alter lipid metabolism. Inform your doctor.

Of more importance may be your use of Lipitor. Take the time to acquaint yourself with the various problems associated with Lipitor use and note in these same sources the argument that there IS NO study demonstrating high blood cholesterol causes heart disease.
