Have a Vitamin d blood check done if it is not at an optimal level then supplement or get enough... (4 replies)

... Thanks Tess and 40YoFemale ... I have an appointment with the doctor in 10 days, and I am going to ask him to postpone the Statin and tell him about my diet. Hopefully he will go along with that. :) (3 replies)
... Your doc is only looking at one number. When your ratios are figured, which is more relevant, I see no reason for you to use a Statin. Your HDL, LDL and Trigs are all under the values that are considered risky. If it was a choice between reducing carbs and taking a statin I would opt for carb reduction. ... (3 replies)
... My husbands results VERY considerably between being tested at Work with one of those box type testers to being tested by blood a week later (I mentioend this to the lady who does the testing at work & she said HDL can change considerably day to day??

... w, it cannot be excluded that effectiveness may be even greater. Daily doses of 10 mg of policosanol have been shown to be equally effective in lowering total or LDL cholesterol as the same dose of simvastatin or pravastatin. Triglyceride levels are not influenced by policosanol. ... (44 replies)

... If we look at the numbers that make up your total cholesterol, the only one that is out of line is your LDL. And at 143, it is only borderline high anyway. The TC/HDL ratio, which apparently is the best indicator of heart disease risk, is only 2.9. Anything under 4.5 is considered safe. So could your doctor be over-reacting? Cheers, Mark :) (21 replies)
