Found out that I had high cholesterol and high blood sugar two years ago, did not want to take any medication therefore went on life style change, going to gym and control on food intake. Blood sugar came down but not cholesterol, tried statin and the cholesterol came down. Because of side effect gave up station after three months.
While at the surgery questioned the doctor,You want me to take statin to undo any damage caused by high cholesterol and high blood sugar?, "What is the damage?", As an engineer I need to find this out!, requested for other tests like echo cardiogram and electro cardiogram (stress test). Tests were done last month.
Had an appointment with a cardiologist yesterday, ALL OK, there is no need for medication now, may be later on if I get any problems. I can accept this.
Have an appointment with GP next Monday to discuss the medication requirement further. At the age of 67 I am not 100%, most of my life, went with out many medication apart from UK allergy, have been on allergy medication for over thirty years!
