Statins for women

Posted by drlola @drlola, Nov 3, 2011

I would like others' opinions of use of statins in women...I have 2 different opinions. One that they do no good for women, and women have not been part of studies touting statin use; and two, yes, you have to take them to get your cholesterol under 200.....are others having this confusion over taking statins?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Women's Health Support Group.

I would suggest you talk to your doctor about it - the Mayo docs are very well informed and they actually have a lipid clinic where you see a dietician and a doctor as well as answer a food questionnaire. Good luck!
