Do I need to be on medication?

    A recent check-up shows my new lipid level to be little changed from last time after the 9 days'
    herb tea treatment.

    They are as follows: TCH 4.87 HDL-C 2.02 LDL-C 2.59 TG 1.32

    By the standards of HK Adventist Hospital, the cholestrol level is still too high. Against this
    background, I could give it another 5 days' herb tea treatment to knock it down.

    Just want to hear some views.

    Thank you in advance,

    I find that hard to believe.

    The standards set by HK Adventist Hospital are as follows: TCH 0.00-5.18. Thus my 4.87 is a
    borderline case LDL-C 0.00-2.59 Thus my 2.59 is right at the high end

    The standards set here in China are more lenient: TCH < 6.5 LDL-C < 3.36

    By the way, I have found the doctors here in a specialist hospital to be better than the ones in HK
    Adventist. While the high-flying Stanford graduates in HK Adventist charge US$85 per visit, the ones
    here who are just about as good as, if not better than, HK ones charge only US$ONE to Two per visit.

    That's quite a disparity.

    Which one do you think is more appropriate?

    Depends on their respective overhead costs.

    The disparity might be arising from the latter.

    No; cholesterol is a product of animal metabolic processes. I found this note on one vegan forum
    site: "I certainly know more about nutrition than my doctor, he thought there was cholesterol in
    peanuts..." http://forum.govegan.net/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1210

    One of several more authoritative sites on the absence of cholesterol in vegetable products:

    "There is no cholesterol in fruit, vegetables, grains, beans, or any plant-based food. While fat is
    found in almost all foods, it is usually highest in those of animal origin. Also, most animal fat is
    saturated, while most vegetable fat is unsaturated. Saturated fat tends to raise blood levels of
    cholesterol, while unsaturated fat tends to reduce it."
