Thank you very much for the positive feedback. I was reading all negative responses and bad side effects to PCSK9. Good advice from kishanvasekar and I lean to the holistic but the docs are telling me I am in the 90 percentile to have a heart attack so I am considering the prescription alternative. I will check out the FH website.
My CAC score is 408. I exercise, eat healthy and take appropriate supplements for heart health. I do have a history of high cholesterol and high LDL. My endo and primary want me to take PCSK9 shots as I suffer from hair and memory loss and lethargy when taking statins. They feel the highLDL is FH…familial aster is a history of 2 younger brothers with early heart attacks. I am 65. Any pros or cons on the PCSK9? I am hesitant.
