I have started eating healthier and have lost 8lbs so far. Working on another 10lbs. Dr told me to stop taking statin till I could come in next week. My right knee has stopped hurting but my left knee has not. Anxious to go to dr.

If my cholesterol is way down why would I have to keep taking unless it starts going up? I go to dr next week.

I am taking Atorvastatin for high cholesterol. Last week I started having joint pain in my knees and at times can barely walk. Could this medine cause this and what medicine is better for high cholesterol?

Thank you. My BP is in 130/80 range. And I have been on thyroid meds for 30 yrs. I am just totally scared of the words heart failure and needed to hear from people like you. My family history is full of heart problems.

I am a 72 yr old female. I have been diagnosed with diastolic heart failure, hardening of arorta.. I also have hypothyroid. My blood pressure had been high for yrs and cholesterol was very high. I had an echocardiogram three yrs ago and was never treated for heart failure till last yr when my EKG came back abnormal during a preop exam for hernia surgery. Now I take Lipitor,Carvedilol, My numbers have gone down, chol-133, HDL 125, LDL 62.
My dr doesn’t seem to be concerned. I would like to know what other tests you recommend and are the medicines he is giving me sufficient?
Thank you
