    I'm sorry to hear that, but it sounds like the best course of action right now.

    I love oysters. Unfortunately, they do not seem to love me. My last two outings when eating them raw left me with gastrointestinal symptoms bad enough to scare me away from even trying again. Maybe...

    Increasing numbers of studies are showing that practicing medicine just by LDL number is bad medicine. It's just more complicated than the number. Yours isn't even that far beyond where they say it...
