Cholesterol

Anyone taking statins for cholesterol?
causernamebemyusername · M Best Comment
I have had shit cholesterol since I was 8 so yeah. I don't trust them because cholesterol can have an important role in the body. But on the other hand too much can cause problems as well. So I'll take them to help moderate it.
But no I haven't had any side effects personally.
If you can't take statins there are other options like bile acid sequestration, fibrates and Niacin.
But statins are used first because they have the least side effects for most people.

[@406636,causernamebemyusername] Thank you for the reply. Its never been a problem for me but recently it was flagged by my doctor. He was very particular in pointing out possible side effects so it got me thinking if statins were a good idea. Guess I will just wait and see
