Statins --- if I start them and I stuck on them for life? Heard all tooo many reports of muscle aches and folk who are for some reason not able to go back to a life without these things.
Cholesterol is roughly about 249
Good cholesterol around 48
Doc recommended Liptor once. Have tried to reduce chol through diet and using fish oil capsules but it only went up. (I'm wondering if the fish oil helped or hindered)
I've been prescribed Lipitor 10 mg. I really don't want to be on Lipitor or similar, and wondering if it worth another shot at changing diet even more radically, eg. eliminating meat, before taking statins. Or whether it's unwise to delay.
