Hi. Just back from a GP visit to check on blood results. Even eating a very healthy with loads of verge and omega 3 my cholesterol is 5.3 and HDL 1.
We agreed at my last visit to stop artorvastin because of side effects I couldn't tolerate. Because of the high cholesterol level I have agreed to try an other brand Rosuvastatin at my GP's request. I have now read a paper by a Dr Wolfe that taking Rosuvastatin increases the risk of diabetes more than the other statins.
I am now confused and unhappy to start this medication. Had anyone here on the forum been prescribed Rosuvastatin and if so how do you get on with it and how is it tolerated? Having already had a stroke I believe my risk of having an other one is always there.
I am grateful for any information.
