You can google "low cholesterol diet" on the internet and read which foods are appropriate and which ones are not. Medications to lower the cholesterol would be the way of choice since she is unable to do any activity or exercise. She needs to work with her doctor on her cholesterol levels and you can assist with better food choices for her.

Well first of all, you should go consult a doctor. They would work out an eating plan custom made for you to try and lower your cholesterol and if unsuccessful they would prescribe you medication to help. To lower cholesterol they might ask you to reduce your consumption of fatty foods (cheese, butter, any fried food), try not to snack between meals or if you do to privilege raw vegeteables or seed bars. And try to introduce oats to your diet..

Drink Much More Water Drink Like Two Gallons. [[ a day ]] That's What I Do And One Time I Went To The Doctors For A Checkup And He Told Me I Had To Drink More Soda Because My Cholesterol Was Way Down.

I'm not a doctor or nurse, so you decide. Try walking about 1/2 mile every day, drink lots of water, stop eating fast food and prepared foods, such as snack foods and a lot of sweets. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are supposed to decrease the bad cholesterol and triglycerides and increase the good HDL cholesterol. The statin drugs like Lipitor scare me. It made my Mom ache all over.

She needs to lower her trigylcerides. Lose weight. If you're overweight, losing 5 to 10 pounds can help lower your triglycerides. Motivate yourself by focusing on the benefits of losing weight, such as more energy and improved health.

Food substances: Pomegranate juice, garlic, grapefruit juice, oily fish (mackeral, sardines, skippers, sild, fresh tuna, salmon), walnuts, almonds, oat bran, oatmeal, green tea, pulses, celery, advocado, extra virgin olive oil. Health supplements: gum guggul, globe artichoke extract, Niacin (a B Vitamin), fish oil capsules, soy lecithin, psyllium husk powder, flax seed powder. Your Grandma would have to avoid grapefruit juice if she is on cholesterol lowering medicine or certain medication. The same applies to garlic if she is on blood thinning medication. Niacin (B Vitamin) is best taken as part of a Vitamin B Complex. it can sometimes cause facial flushing when it is first taken but this is nothing to be alarmed about. Plus your Grandma would have to seek medical advice before taking it if she is on insulin. It is supposed to be very effective in lowering cholesterol, as effective as over the counter anti-cholesterol drugs but without the nasty side effects. See my other answer on this: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;... If your Grandma is on medication it is always best for her to check with a pharmacist first before taking any herbal supplements because of drug-herb ineractions that can occur with some drug and herb combinations..
