and in just under 4 months my cholesterol has lowered to an acceptably healthy level. I can now enjoy a cheese and Thai again.

The doctor seemed impressed that I had dropped 1.8mmol/L (from 6.6 to 4.8) in that period of time. I don’t know if that’s good or not, but I don’t think I’ll be dying of a heart attack anytime soon (hopefully there are no sudden ironic twists now I’ve written that).
