I've been on Tasigna for almost a year now. It's working very well and I'm feeling pretty good. I recently had a cholesterol test and my levels are way up. 240 total, LDL 151, other components normal. Before my dx my cholesterol has always been normal to slightly elevated.
My PCP said to work on diet/exercise. My oncologist said the same thing, but suggested that I take cholesterol lowering meds. I'd prefer not to take cholesterol meds.
Does anyone have any experience they can share on this? I'm at the upper end of "normal" weight and I get alot of exercise. At least I think I do.
Thanks in advance.
