Hello from JA
exitimibe acts by decreasing cholesterol absorption in the intestine.
Here is some FDA information.
In fact moderate plaque is not good, but common in your age group.
Exercise, correct diet, and lowering the LDL while rasing the HDL can effectively reverse plaque.
See any book by Dean Ornish on this subject.
Plaque build up clearly can be arrested, and reversed in some cases if you are strict.
In any case, the other expert is off line...I will be glad to follow up as needed.
You might in fact not need meds at all, I can advise you further if you give me your exact numbers.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
