ask: How can I lower my cholesterol without Rx?

Rate This

Quit smoking 55 days ago. Had a Px 1 week ago. My cholesterol is high, my kidneys are dysfunctional and I am being treated for anxiety! (Father passed away in March, one week after my mother was Dx with stage 4 lung cancer-I am her primary caregiver) Mostly worried about getting my cholesterol lowered. Kidneys need more water-I'm not much of a water drinker. I try to walk 1-2 miles whenever it is not raining which has been 1-2x a week. I know I need more exercise and need to lose 30 lbs.
