Aug 30, 2019 · Statin Intolerance in Heart & Blood Health

Thank you backing up the importance of statins. In my family we have a genetic disorder which causes us to have super high cholesterol despite eating a healthy diet. It has been the killer on my mom's side. My cholesterol is over 300 and that's after months if Lipitor. So Cardiologist doubled my dose. Yes, I get the "muscle" pain but I already deal with extreme chronic pain anyway and take meds for it so…I'm a lil tougher than that and will deal with it so I do not have a 4th heart attack.
Just my opinion but I'm less likely to take my cardiovascular health into my own hands based on numbers I took off the internet. And I would certainly be doubtful of a Dr whom agreed. I have a pacemaker and received diagnosis of DVT this week.
I will add the COQ10 to my regimen though. Thanks for the tip.
Listen to your Drs folks. Stay knowledgeable but don't second guess your Drs based on the internet. It could be the difference between life and death! This is your CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH not a common cold.❤
