Hypercholesterolemia after Treatment

Prior to radiation and chemo, my lipid profile was normal, 6 months after finishing radiation on Dec 2007 my lipid profile was still normal. Now, 17 months later, my lipid profile is totally abnormal and the test was repeated and still came out abnormal. I have been with a very healthy diet since I was able to eat again and don't understand why. My PCP says that this is 2ry to my chemo and radiation where my metabolism was very much affected and should be back to normal within 6 months to a year and recommended to begin treatment in the meantime but my cardiologist (I don't have any cardiological issues), thinks that this could be familiar hypercholesterolemia. Has anyone of you experienced anything similar? I will start treatment with superstatins next week.

Dear coco2003,

The easiest way to locate other CSN members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "hypercholesterolemia," "high cholesterol," "superstatins," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the “Advance search” link listed underneath the search field. The major categories of content on CSN are blogs, discussion boards, “About Me” pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a specific resource on the Resource Library, you can limit your search to resources only by clicking on the "resource" and "advanced search" button at the bottom of the "advanced search" box. Remember that you must be logged on if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal pages, use the chat room, etc.

Cordially,
Your CSN Staff
