    My father was prescribed Niaspan to raise his good cholestrol above the 40 benchmark (37), but after reviewing the side effects and reading up on it, I am not sure he should be taking this, I read somewhere a listing of foods that could help in this, what are your recommendations on food choices to raise the good cholestrol. He is 78, diabetic, has had a heart attack (2 stints) 10 years agao and cartriod artery surgery in left side of neck 3 yrs ago.
