Oh well it was worth a shot. I decided to stop my statins and see what happened.. And my total cholesterol has shot up to 8.6 with my HDL 1.1 and LDL 6 Triglycerides 3.4.. So I have to go back on statins..
I guess it's in my genes as I am really really fit. I cycles 50 - 60 miles a week, swim 70 80 lengths twice a week and eat very well..
But I have a family history ..Mum coronary artery surgery at 63 , brother quadruple bypass at 58, maternal grandfather died suddenly of a heart attack at 63..
