Our expert says:
You have to take the Crestor to treat your cholesterol or any other suitable product, as your cholesterol is very high. A cholesterol of 8 puts you in a high risk category for a heart attack. Please refer to above post regarding cholesterol.
I suggest that you have a full hormonal profile done, which will include testosterone. If your hormones are abnormal, your doctor will be able to treat the abnormal normals. It is important to know if you had a full abdominal hysterectomy, which means that your ovaries were removed.
Exercise is very important to lower cholesterol, as well as burn fat and to prevent the symptoms of IBS.
A good diet, low in calories and high in fiber, will be beneficial.
I also suggest that you consult a gastroenterologist to confirm the diagnosis of IBS, as it is a diagnosis made by exclusion of other pathology. There are treatment options for IBS and the gastroenterologist will certainly look at these options.
Please feel free to post any other questions.
