... My husband is a very healthy and active 28 year old, but no matter what he does, his cholesterol is still high. Our doctor doesn't want to put him on medication because of his age, but he's getting really frustrated that everytime he has it checked (every 6 mos), it's the same or just a few points lower and the doctor tells him the same things to do over and over. He goes to... (1 replies)

New Numbers

... JJ, /5 means "divided by 5" as in "triglycerides divided by 5". In your case, 155/5 = 31. Why would you listen to a nutritionist (regarding diet) when you won't listen to your doctor (regarding drug therapy)? Do you trust the nutritionists judgement more than your doctors? And your diabetic husband would likely benefit from a low carbohydrate diet much more than you... (21 replies)

... My own primary care doctor had muscle pains with lipitor. He switched to crestor and they have not returned, so I said I'd try it and see (after having pain with lipitor, and then zocor). All my doctors have said that they see this a lot - one statin may cause intolerable side effects while another may not. While they all acheive their lipid lowering effects by essentially...
