Dr. Pinckney and Herman:
thank you both. In reality both my CAD Reversal and good Blood Tests are due to many people that supported my new lifestyle changes project. This discussion group was one of the first and more important in my initial steps. I could not have it done if I had not the incentives you all gave me.

In the initial moments when I got confirmed with CAD diagnostic I almost went crazy. Why me? But after spending some time in the internet, finding Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. Pinckney, Amazon books and this site, I started the Vegan/VLF diet with new hopes.

Herman,
I have reduced the statins pills since the beginning of this project (since almost 4 years). I am reducing them in order to know if LDL and HDL are kept below the recommended limits and if total cholesterol is well under 150. After reducing crestor from 70 mg to 40 mg a week I have got repeated blood tests with total cholesterol around 108. I assume that it is safe to reduce statins pills to 30 mg a week, what I started it this month. I suspect that may be additional benefits on statins. I will ask my good doctor what and if there are such benefits. This doctor is good, but I fill we may be navigating in unchartered waters as may not be many studies on what happens when we reduce statins or eliminate them at all after a reversal happened.
