Hi..
My dr. is a statin believer.. my latest labs are

total 259
LDL 167
HDL 73
Trigs 95
non HDL 186

ratio 3.5. with the new guidelines.. its so confusing.. i don't want to start statins since my sister has liver problems when she was on them..

thanks.. sharon..

ps. i did have my LDL checked about 2 yrs ago and it was Type A.

I want to be ready when i go next week for my appointment...

Remember the doctor works for you. Just tell him you don't want to take statins. Your numbers aren't that bad, your HDL is excellent. Do more research into cholesterol. Check out Dr. Graveline's info and you might stop worrying. Take care :)
