What is the Right LDL Goal??
I am a 61 year old female and very confused as to how low is low enough with ldl goal.
Here are my numbers:
HDL 93 (yup 93).
Fasting Glucose 85
Blood Pressure 124/76
I take 40mg of Simvastatin but my doctor wants my ldl below 100 and has prescribed 20mg of Crestor. I love my doctor but I'm having trouble understanding just what it is she is trying to fix.
I feel an ldl <130 should be enough.
PS - I have had high cholesterol my entire life (discovered in my 20's). I had an angiogram when I was 54 which was negative.
