You previous vitamin C intake (or lack thereof) was probably much more important than your "poor" diet, although these factors can be related.
Great idea w/r to vitamin C and lysine. How much in one tablet? We recommend this protocol to get started. Dosage is important - the more the better.
I could write a book on those cholesterol drugs. Crestor at higher dosages is the most dangerous, and doctors at this forum report that the FDA just issued a warning about Cresotr.
Optimal vitamin C intake generally reduces cholesterol numbers.
Of course as you improve, your doctor will credit the drugs!
