Yesterday my kids were at their consultant. 14 year old son has been taking statins now for about 3 months. Having gone from being advised to severely restrict fats in his diet last year to reduce his cholesterol which I refused to do as I didn't think that was practical for a teenager I have been made to feel like a bad parent as he has grown a lot in the last 6 months but put on no weight at all. His consultant thinks I am not feeding him enough when actually he more or less eats what he wants when he wants. He is sports mad and very active. They now want to see us more often to monitor his weight!
