Dear Dr. Pickney,
I am a relatively healthy vegan; howvere, my total cholesterol is 277 with 199 LDL!
I've had a history of hypertension and it has been treated with 20mgs of Lisinopril and 100 (!) mgs of Hydrochlorothiazide.
My new MD was appalled and took me off the diuretic which I think contributed to this very high cholesterol.
I have a simple question - will rice bran be better tha oat bran in my diet to help handle this and what about pumpkin seeds?
Thanks so much!
