    Hey guys,

    I would like to hear your opinions on my concern. It's actually not about me here, it's my friend's issue. She has high cholesterol and constantly looking for new ways on how to lower cholesterol, while at the same time she needs to be cautious about her sugar level... Now are there any cholesterol meds that might interfere with my insulin?

    Difficult one, but I would stay away from statins.

    Eating low carb & weight loss helps.

    Not sure of the answer as I don't take statins myself, there's quite a few on the forum who do take them so by 'bumping' your post up you might get some helpful replies.

    Hello,
    There are certain meds available from which you can reduce your cholesterol level. More on that if you go with the natural or herbal supplement it would be more beneficiary to you...
