My numbers
Sep 12, 2011
OK, I have always been against any statins due to both my parents, and my older brother having issues with muscle aches and weakness. So I just turned 50, and had all kinds of tests done, and everything is good except my cholesterol numbers. And the Dr. wants to start me on the lowest dose of Lipitor. So here's the numbers, and I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Just to edit here: my blood pressure is 106/60, and I'm 6ft, 190 and stay in excellent shape. I work out often.

Total Cholesterol - 281
Triglyceride - 110
HDL - 54
LDL - 205

By the way, my Dr. told me that he would be VERY nervous if he had these numbers! Are they THAT bad?
