High Cholesterol Message Board

High Cholesterol Board Index

After having taken statins twice, one lowered little, the other caused severe leg cramps, my doctor is wanting me to try yet a third statin. I am 69 years old and have had high cholesterol (250 range) for probably 20 years. Recently my chol. was 374 but after an adjustment in my thyroid meds it dropped nearly 100 points. Now back to about 300. My good (hdl) is 56. Back in January I had a ct coronary calcium scoring done with results of 0 plaque and at low risk. My thinking is that if I have had high chol. for all these years and have no plaque then why the heck take anything. I have no other risk factors, not overweight, blood pressure good, don't smoke, get plenty of exercise. Just don't think I'm going to take anything. I hate to be bullheaded but I guess I am.Feedback anyone.
