I'd talk to a non va cardiologist and or an endocrinologist. (The VAMC closest to me does not even have a board certified cardiologist) Cholestyramine is one of the older drugs and there are newer ones that may be better for you. I'd wonder if there are medical conditions other than high cholesterol that are involved. Usually, most people just have minor problems over the long term after gall bladder removal. A less fatty/no fat diet is one of the must do's.

The cholestyrine is not for the cholesterol, but bile. Since my gall bladder was removed and part of my ileum the bile has a one Way ticket out ( diarrhea 4-6times ) without the meds). Keeps

The dumping syndrome down. You are correct that it latches to fat Soluble , but that is making me vitamin d deficient. Just wanted to compare notes on difference between 10 and 30 percent, as they are vague.
