Someone told me long ago that medical doctors have to offer statins if cholesterol numbers are high....or else they can be sued. Don't know if it's true, but I've always had high cholesterol (all family members have) and high LDL, but also very high HDL! Go figure. Even with my NDT, I've always been high with cholesterol and have always refused statins. They say that they don't do any good for women in studies, only really for men. Leo, you are lucky that your Rx lowered yours...mine has remained high forever. I think it's hereditary. But mine tested for big and fluffy so it's not the dangerous type. Yay to that.
