Ask your doctor to prescribe you something like lipitor, or maybe you could try eating garlic. I believe there is also a no-smell pill thats give the same benefits as garlic, I think its called garlique.

Lower Cholesterol Naturally
There are many natural alternatives/supplements that can help to lower cholesterol. Some of these are reportedly more effective in lowering cholesterol than prescription medications, without the dangerous side effects

these include: guggul, policosanol, red yeast rice, pantethine etc. In addition there are at least another 30 natural supplements that can help to lower cholesterol. Hope that helps.


All the best

Aged Garlic to Lower Cholesterol!
Did you know that one of the most important health benefits of garlic is
lowering cholesterol!?
Aged garlic is the extract of fresh, whole garlic aged in alcohol. It contains all of the natural goodness from whole fresh garlic, and if administered correctly, without the unpleasant aftertaste or odor!

I have some pages that sell aged garlic:

straussheartdrops
garlicure

try it!!!

Medical Treatment of Lesions Did Not Help!
I have the cholesterol deposits under both eyes as well - got them about 4 years ago - went to a plastic surgeon who diagnosed it - had my cholesterol checked and it was within normal limits....He burned them off - had a small scar which was easy to cover up -- looked great for about 1 year - but they came back with a vengence! I am under 50 - hate them! But - I was informed by family that my grandmother had them as well... According to my doctor - burning them off - lasering them off - or surgically cutting them out (which isn't really an option - there isn't enuff skin left to make the eye-cheek look normal) are the only options. They do not go away on their own. Since cholestrol limits are normal - it isn't a matter of cutting cholesterol either...They've made for some interesting comments and conversations... Most i'd almostly certainly love to live without! :|

All Natural .... Lowered Cholesterol
I lowered my cholesterol by 50 points in six months. I am very against taking any drugs like lipitor for lower cholest. Especially since I am only 30. My holistic doctor recommended fresh barley grass, pi-mag water abd ciaga..All natural supplements made by this wellness compnay from japan. Sure enough, after taking these supplements and drinking the water from my new pi mag water filtration system my level went from 250 to 195 in 6 months...Simply amazing!

I am 27 yrs old and I too got many cholesterol deposits around both my eyes, both upper and lower lids.
I start getting it when I was 10 yrs old. At first I don't know what are those things.... Until my doctor told me they are cholesterol deposits and they can only be removed by laser or surgery. I thought they are acne or oil puffs caused by dirty or oily complexion. Confused
I got many of those ugly puffs around my eyes... .... Really ugly.... I want to get rid of them.
Would it be costly to do the laser or surgery? Will it bring negative effect to eyes?

Cholesterol Treatment!
General causes of high cholesterol are diabetes and hypothyroidism, and diet. Being overweight, smoking, not exercising, and eating a diet high in saturated fat and cholesterol can cause high ldl, low hdl, and increased triglycerides.
By changing lifestyle and taking medicines one can treat the high cholesterol. Lifestyle change may include modifying your diet, quitting smoking, losing weight, and exercising.

cholestroldeposits on upper and lower eyelids
Hi,
I have had my cholestrol deposits on my eyelids for around for years.
It is a waste of time having surgery - mine came back within 3months and were worse than ever. Laser treatment would be exactly the same. It is nothing to do with wether you have high cholestrol so don't even go there. Stick to alternatives and if you find one that works please do let me know.

Actually, there is strong evidence that high carb diets raise triglycerides and lower HDL.

RM Krauss has done some great work in this area. Google "Krauss carbohydrates" for studies. Pubmed.com is a great site to review research.

professional extractions helpful but risky
I am an esthetician and had a client come in today with what I was certain were cholesterol deposits around the eyelids. One in particular had gotten very large. The primary reason for her facial was to see if I could remove them by extractions. I did end up removing it with a lancet but it wasn't easy and could have been very traumatic to the skin. I am letting all of you know that an esthetician will remove them if you insist, but just be sure she has plenty of experience. If your skin has small capillaries close to the surface, this option is not for you, as it will burst these capillaries, bruise, and will most likely come back. My case today was successful!

Are they on the eyeball itself? I have yellow/orange blobs on my eyeballs, one on each, and was told that this was a cholesterol problem. I too am wanting to get rid of these unsightly deposits.

Optical Cholesterol
Hey, you're not all talking about the same thing. One is on the actual eyeball. I have always had this even when my cholesterol levels are normal. One small bump on each eyeball between the inside corner and the iris. Not too noticeable to other people as they are the same general color as the surrounding (white) area.
Others are talking about growths on the eyelids, don't get them confused.

Cholesterol
Yup, drinking beer, smoking, not excercising, family history with cholesterol levels will bring deposits in your arteries. Reducing red meat and eating more vegetarion especially Tofu may help. Garlic is good. No butter and reduced fat milk. Also you want to see if you have cholesterol and fat build up in your arteries in conjunction with gum disease, as this will increase likelyhood of stroke (if theories are right) see http://www.perio.org/consumer/mbc.heart.ht m basically you have to keep a Lifestyle Change going. We have access to too much food and booze/cigs and no excercise -- so what do you expect!
