A patient, 60 and male, came into the clinic today. We did an annual exam, looking at cholesterol and other factors. The patient's LDL levels were high, and HDL levels were lower than preferred. We suggested taking the patient off meat and dairy products and starting a statin. The patient stated that they had been on a statin with severe side effects in the past. What suggestions do you have that would make reducing LDL levels easier on a patient who is intolerant to statins (or will not take them for other reasons?) Would you suggest exercise and dietary measures only?
