I received my lab work today from my annual physical. For the last year and half my total cholesterol has been 200-206. My triglycerides went from 316 down to 297, better but still not good. My hdl the good stuff is at 27 which is low. I have decided to go ahead and do the medicine. My major concern is will it affect my riding. Will I not be able to push as hard? I hate taking medicine regularly, so I want to try it for about 6 mo. then stop for a while.
I plan on discussing this with my doctor who is a friend, but he doesn't have any practical experience with it. I want someone's advice that has experience with this type of medicine.
