Our expert says:
I agree, one should not take medication if you can get by without it. Unfortunately most of us inherited bad cholesterol from our parents and the right diet can only bring it down a certain percentage. Some people just have to take cholesterol tablets too. There is no harm in trying for another 3 months but if you see that you are on a stable level and diet does not help anymore and it won't go lower than 5, you may need to take medication.
