My cholesterol level is 7.4. I have ranged over the past several years between 6.7 to 8.5. I have been told by the GP that although my cholesterol is high, my risk is fairly low due to the fact of no heart disease in the family. My diet is relatively good, I hardly eat red meats etc . A new GP has asked for my bloods to be taken again, I have a feeling he is going to put me on statins, which i am not to happy about, after having seen people whom i know taking them and been very unwell.
My question is if i have to start taking medication what would you advise i ask the GP for? any advise would any advice would be welcome as i haven't done much research . Thanking you in advance.
