I have been reading that Statins combined with niacin can reduce the risk of PN. And is an overall a preventive for heart disease.
Is anyone taking statins and niacin in combination?

Good morning Steve @steveny9, Thanks for asking that question. You helped me with my daily quest of trying to learn one new fact each day 🙂
"What is the difference between a fasting and nonfasting lipid panel?
Nonfasting samples are more convenient for patients, and there is no appreciable difference between fasting and nonfasting results for total cholesterol or high-density lipoprotein cholesterol."
— Fasting vs. Nonfasting Lipid Profile for Assessing Cardiovascular Risk:
I think what has helped me the most bringing down my glucose numbers is intermittent fasting along with eating a lot fewer carbs. It's also a big part in lowering my Cholesterol numbers along with the daily exercise at least 4 or 5 days a week for 30 to 60 minutes.
There is another discussion that you might find helpful on the topic:
— Low-carb healthy fat living. Intermittent fasting. What’s your why?:
I have had the same issues with neuropathy in both feet,I changed my diet completely & lost 121 lbs I was taken of the statins,Blood pressure meds completely.The down side is I have Type ll off all diabetic meds very well controlled HBA1C 5.4 two a-fib surgeries very successful off blood thinners just a baby aspirin & Gabapentin daily.Still the neuropathy is my worst nightmare. Thinking about stem Cell treatments very expensive some say it works & most Doctors say it doesn’t any advice I will take it.
Thank you! What a very help group to follow. Thanks again for the tip.
My niece has Scorloderma she had stem cell at Duke University it helped her.
